what's the most annoying kind of facebook update?

I'm not on facebook anymore but I thought this list from Real Simple magazine was spot on!

24 percent: Intentionally vague posts meant to generate concern and attention, a.k.a. vaguebooking. “Jennifer wonders whether it’s all been worth it.” **Oh man this always drove me crazy! **  Or when people talk smack about other people and you know who they are talking about--yea not vague at all!

20 percent: Chronic complaining. “Ugh, who ordered this RAIN? It’s making my carpal tunnel act up again.”

19 percent: Meaningless calls to action. “If you want to fight world hunger, put the color of your socks as your status update for the next half hour. I want to see who is brave enough to take a stand.”

14 percent: Oversharing. “Note to self: Next time, wear a thong with that wrap dress.”

13 percent: Miscellaneous posts—including polarizing religious or political statements, indecipherable txt spk, and game updates.

10 percent: Posting too frequently. “12:03: Chicken salad or tuna? 12:12: Chicken! Thanks for the responses.”

Now I'll admit I'm probably guilty of all those things mentioned that's why I found it so funny. 

Here's the full article if you're curious to read more.
