For me it's "triumphalist golden cleric acceptance speech fanny junior"

For example -

My English teacher and all those bitches at Barnsley Comp told me I was a bit thick and too much of a GIRL to get anywhere in life but looks like I'll be TAKING UP A HIGH FLYING ROLE IN THE CITY. So I guess people shouldn't make judgements!

Not so shabby for a thickie!

I assumed this was going to be about putting on some new lipstick and riding a horse around naked if you feel depressed.

I grew up near one of them. Her parents were all over the place saying our girl has got a brilliant job down in London, who'd have thought it, 'beams'.

Turned out she was just telephone flogging advetising space in magazines.

Shi1tty fvcking motivational memes about what makes a leader. I see some of that bollox every day it feels like. One of the guys who is a really bad contributor of that utter shite is widely regarded as one of the very worst senior managers in banking who most likely attended the Darth Vader charm school on his way to the top. It's all meaningless dross anyway, stupid short phrases intended to be pithy but actually manage to achieve an almost admirably bad combination of cringe and inaccuracy.

I dislike the ones that refer to a place as though it's a person, like "Edinburgh, you've been amazing!"

This is probably just my own hang-up though and not something that anyone else cares about.

"Congrats"

If you can't change the auto-created "well done" message, do you really think someone you barely know personally but pretend you are best mates with will think "What a nice touch, I must remember to give them £10m of business/a job."

People who think everyone cares deeply about their kid and needs multiple updates every day about what they're doing. Fvck off, your child isn't special or interesting. Put that stuff on a WhatsApp to your family if you want, but the rest of us don't give a tug.

A girl I went to school with had a rough divorce a couple of years ago, and it seems like every time FB time hop reminds her of a family photo she posted five years ago or whatever, she shares it with a LONG narrative about how she said she was happy when she posted that photo, but actually her evil husband had just called her fat:/ ritually sacrificed their first born etc and goes on and on in excruciating detail, then ends with a load of hashtags about how strong and free she is now.

I wish we were closer so I could say, you will cringe at yourself when you are more over this.

Any of those rambling posts that basically tell you you're a heartless bastard if you don't repost them. Look we all know someone with cancer and I really don't think me copying a pasting some cliche is going to cure them.

We used to live in a 'socially mixed' area of a regional city. The primary school facebooks page would be full of rants from the Jeremy Kyle Mums about how great a Mum they are and if anyone has a problem they can 'say it to their face' (usually following some sort of school/social services intervention).

Maybe change your profile pic from that one of you caning a four pack of Nelson first eh luv?

1. The attention seeking 'u ok hun?' ones

2. The 'cut and paste or you are a heartless bastard' ones

3 The posting of hoaxes that 5 seconds on Snopes would have debunked

4. The 'share if your proud to be British' ones

5. the pouty selfie ones

The problem isn't the software. The problem is the people using it have no boundaries, and behave like arseholes with their phones, constantly staring down at the screen and talking loudly. It makes no sense to cry "oh Facebook/Twitter/whatsApp is a scurge I am so glad I am too old to have an interest in ra ra", as if those things are the problem.

To be fair I think the “slummy mummy” type who posts a picture of a glass of Proseco as if it a symbol of ostentatious decadence when reallly it is just a cheap bottle of fizzy plonk that you can buy from Aldi is just as bad.
