While we all check Facebook multiple times a day and the thought of quitting it ranks just below the idea of giving up sleep or water, we all have our issues with Facebook. Whether it be the most recent change (can anyone stand the Timeline yet?) or some annoying “friends” — we all have our particular pet peeves.
The collegiettes at Her Campus are weighing in on their complaints below — and after you check out (and relate), let us know your own least favorite part of Facebook by leave a comment below!
When someone "likes" their own status. Obviously you like it...that's why you wrote it. We get it. Keep it classy and don't get tacky.

My biggest pet peeve on Facebook are vague and ambiguous status updates, such as excerpts from song lyrics or something as short as "ughhhh." If you are going through a rough patch, posting a Facebook status is not going to help. Instead, it makes you look desperate and craving attention. If you are having a bad day, call up a friend, talk to someone who actually cares, and keep it all offline.

The sorority girl pose! Hand on your hip and arching your back - it's getting a little annoying! Also, posts that start with 'some people need to...' sound really passive aggressive.

I don't know why this keeps happening, but lots of people from my hometown keep tagging me (as well as the rest of my Facebook friends from home) in product pictures of shoes. I don't know why it's happening, but it's really awkward when you see it on your phone but can't untag it until you get home.

Selfies! I know you are pretty, and Instagram makes your eyes even prettier! BUT TAKE PICTURES WITH FRIENDS! A few selfies here and there are fine, but I cannot stand when girls post 12 a day.
