We all know how Facebook was conceived in a dorm room and came to life over apple martinis (or so says The Social Network), but it's definitely not as glamorous as the movie, especially when posting photos of scabs and fetuses. So while you're stalking exes and commenting to yourself on how fat people have gotten since high school, you're pissing off everyone on your Friends list. Here's why:
You post too many pictures of your food, cat, and baby

We get it; your baby is cute, your cat is cute, and you're a master chef of anything coming in a box marked "Kraft." Unless it's a photo of your cat holding your baby while making you a steak for dinner, we've seen it before.
You write "RIP" for every public death
We all knew Michael Jackson died the exact second he was wheeled over to the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. Your post with "RIP" written across the top didn't break the news, and the same goes for your RIP posts on Whitney Houston, Dick Clark, Roger Ebert, Patricia Medina, and everyone else who is remotely famous. Mourning their loss? Fine, just stop inundating Facebook with the news of their death, because like we said, we already knew.
