Nearly everyone finds themselves annoyed by the occasional awful Facebook friend. These protestors, stalkers and complainers usually creep onto your Facebook wall only to bother you when you least expect it. There are the family members who embarrass you at every corner, and those friends you’d just love to bail on—if they weren’t somehow involved in the periphery of the social group you network with.
In the worst case scenario, these people might haunt you, giving you angst in dreams where the ‘unfriend’ button is always just out of your reach. In the best case scenario, you may simply shake your head in chagrin and move along with your day. Without further ado, here are the top five most horrible types of people to befriend on Facebook. There’s plenty of other personalities that peeve people out, but these are the ones that made the cut.

However, when you’re getting into bed sores and catheters, briefs and torts, or even the complaints people make that cause them to look stupid, you’re probably taking your workplace woes a little too far. Just ask yourself these questions: is what I’m putting on my Facebook wall for many to see boring? Does it have a squeamish factor? Do people really need to reaffirm that other people are stupid? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you could be well on your way to becoming a Workplace Oversharer.
