(Newser) – Believe it or not, your Facebook friends don’t need to hear about every single yoga class you attend, the details of your child’s potty training, or how you feel about each and every play in a baseball game. Amelia McDonell-Parry lists 13 social networking faux pas, on The Frisky:

  • Passive-aggressive posts: “I’m thinking about you. Yeah, you. You know what you did. And I won’t ever forget it.”
  • Bragging: “Ugh, I SO wish I was back in Peru smooching my boo on the beach instead of at work. Can I have another month off, like, now? Guess life could be worse, right?”

  • Unnecessary quotation marks and capitals: “Where the hell did the last TEN YEARS go?!?! Oh well…‘au revoir’ ‘09…I won’t miss ya! 2010, I’ll rise again! (No, uh…not ‘Jesus’...ME! I’ll ‘rise’ to meet the challenges instead of lettin’ them BEAT ME this time!)” (Note: Yes, this is a real post.)
  • Crisis-tweeting: No need for an example here. We’re looking at you, Tila Tequila.
  • TMI: “Off to see the gyno to have an ingrown hair on my labia lanced! Wish me luck!”
  • Name-dropping: “Gosh, this is the THIRD party where I’ve run into Dave Eggers. He must be STALKING me!”
