(Newser) – Facebook's got something to annoy everyone, it seems, and Brandon Griggs runs down the most annoying characteristics of Facebookers for CNN. A sampling:

  • The Compulsive Poster: "Just because you have 432 Facebook friends doesn't mean we all want to know when you're waiting for the bus."
  • "The Friend-Padder": The average on Facebook is 120 friends. "1,000 'friends'? That's just showing off."

  • The News Source: You know, there are other, more reliable places to keep up with current events. And "no, Jeff Goldblum did not plunge to his death from a New Zealand cliff."
  • The TMIer: "Brad is heading to Walgreens to buy something for these pesky hemorrhoids." 'Nuff said.
  • Woe Is Me: "Like anglers hunting for fish, these sad sacks cast out their hooks—baited with vague tales of woe—in the hopes of landing concerned responses."
