So I was scrolling through my facebook updates on my phone this morning and this gem pops up. A chick I went to HS with posted that her divorce papers came in and blah blah happy happy and so on. The first post was from a friend of hers and and I quote word for word (including all in CAPS):

BET YOU WON'T DO THAT AGAIN. GETTEN MARRED"

Her next post was priceless, again, word for word:

SPELL CHECK............"MARRYED"

Now I really hate facebook. People have figured out through my sister and parents who my wife is on facebook.

So now they try to friend her or message her to relay information to me. Most of the times it's friends of mine I currently keep touch with but sometimes it's people I have either avoided or haven't talked to in forever.

Word of advice: if your friends are reposting that "veterans come home and surprise their loved ones" video, don't drink a bug gulp of wine at any point while watching.

That #### burns when it goes through the nose.

This new status shuffle thing is the suck.

How do I stop getting farmville and mafiawars updates from people? How do I stop seeing what Mary said on Toms wall when I'm not friends with Tom?

At the right side of the update there should be an "X" that shows up when you hover over it. CLick that, and then it will give you a few options. One shoudl be "Hide Mafiawars". That should remove it from your feed. Just do it once for each of the applications you want to hide. You can also do it to people if you have a friend who updates there post multiple times a day.

Little help with managing groups....

Group A - Coworkers who've found me on facebook

Group B - Friends

I don't want anything from group A showing up on my wall to Group B people and vice versa. I don't even want them to see each other in my friends lists.

This possible?

I'm sure it happens a lot, but this is the first time I've seen a facebook page basically turn into an online memorial.

One of my former high school classmates died yesterday. Self-inflected gunshot wound.

Left behind a husband and 16 month old son. :goodposting:

3 Colombian teens on Facebook hit list killed in past 10 days

CNN.com

August 24, 2010

Three teens who were on a 69-name hit list posted on Facebook have been killed in the past 10 days in a southwestern Colombian town, officials say.

Police say they do not know who posted the list or why the names are on it.

"It is still not clear," Colombian national police spokesman Wilson Baquero told CNN. "This is part of the investigation."

But officials note that a criminal gang known as Los Rastrojos and a Marxist guerrilla group called the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia operate in the area.

The hit list on Facebook, which was posted August 17, gave the people named three days to leave the town of Puerto Asis or be executed, said Volmar Perez Ortiz, a federal official whose title is defender of the public.

Police at first thought the posting was a joke, Perez said in a statement issued Saturday. But the publication of a second list with 31 additional names led authorities to convene a special security meeting Friday, Perez said.

The posting of the lists and the meetings occurred after the first two killings, which took place August 15, Perez said.

On that day, officials say, 16-year-old student Diego Ferney Jaramillo and 17-year-old CD retailer Eibart Alejandro Ruiz Munoz were shot and killed while riding a motorcycle on the road between Puerto Asis and the town of Puerto Caicedo.

Both their names were later found on the first published hit list.

Also on the list was Norbey Alexander Vargas, 19, who was killed August 20, Perez said. Another young man, 16-year-old student Juan Pablo Zambrano Anacona, was wounded in the same incident when he gave chase to the assassins, Perez said.

Colombian media said Monday the number of those threatened has grown and panic has overtaken Puerto Asis, with some parents sending their children out of town because their names are on the Facebook notice.

The names of 31 women were posted on the other list, said Radio RCN, semana.com and other news outlets.

Residents have been overcome with "panic and anxiety," several news outlets quoted Putumayo state official Andres Gerardo Verdugo as saying.

Several of those residents posted their concerns on Twitter, an online messaging site.

"Panic in Puerto Asis, Putumayo, because of threats against young people," wrote a user who goes by JuanSepulvedah. "Our youth must be protected."

Someone who posted under the name JulianEco brought up the Facebook connection.

"The situation in Puerto Asis is tenacious, that a social site be used to add fire to the Colombian conflict," the post said.

Twitter user hugoparragomez likened the situation to the drug-fueled crime waves in other Colombian cities.

"What is happening in Puerto Asis, Putumayo, is grave, the same as in Medellin," the tweet said. "Authorities should take control of the situation. Who is investigating?"

Still others inflated the death count.

"In Puerto Asis they have killed 20 young people threatened on Facebook and the authorities have not said anything," wrote jesusmhenriquez "That is Colombia."

Federal officials say they are taking the threats seriously and have sent investigators from Bogota, the nation's capital, to Puerto Asis. Internet experts are among the investigators assigned to the case.

Authorities also are offering a reward of 5 million pesos (around $2,750) for information on the killings.

Perez, the federal defender of the public, noted that the Los Rastrojos criminal gang is active in Puerto Asis, "executing violent actions, resolving community conflicts, imposing living and conduct norms, intimidating and meting punishment against ... drug sellers and consumers, sex workers, people with criminal and unlawful histories and threatening social leaders, business people, taxi drivers and motorcycle taxi drivers."

Perez said the Marxist guerrillas, commonly known as the FARC, also are active in the remote area, which borders Ecuador.

Two Facebook representatives did not return a message Tuesday asking for comment.

Never once have I blocked/ignored someone on here(or used the report button for that matter) in my 5+ years on FBG.I had to block/ignore someone on Facebook yesterday though. I just couldn't take it. Insanely stupid drivel over a dozen times a day. Every day. Examples:

Freaking out because my cast doesn't match my outfit :thumbup: Oh well! At least it matches my eyeshadow! :thumbup:

I absolutely LOVE this one pair of jeans I have. I wish I knew where I got them so I can go back and buy 10 more.

Change is the essence of life. Be willing to surrender what you are for what you could become

She also incessantly posts about organized religion. Mind you, I don't care if someone has God in their heart. Thats fine, whatever works for them. She, however, beats you over the head with it.

Go to the bottom right corner where it says "Chat (2)" or whatever the number is. Click on "options" and then "go offline".Of course that makes offline to everyone.

You can also make groups and block individual groups, so you put all the game people and folks you can't stand in that one and never turn on that chat button.

Yes. Go to your friends list. To the right of his name, it should say "Add to List". Click on that, create a new list and add him to it. When you open your online list at the bottom right of your page, you'll see the new lklist you created. (Name it anything you want). There';s a little 'switch' that you can turn off. Slide iot over and you'll appear offline to him, but nobody else.
