With more than 900 million people using Facebook, you're bound to run into a few aggravating types that can make your social network life a living hell. But before you decide to quit and start up a new account, check out this list of five types of Facebook users to never add as friends:
Strangers While this sounds like a no-brainer, there are more than a few Facebook users who see no problem in adding strangers as friends; a 2011 study revealed that one in five users were willing to add a complete stranger as a friend on Facebook. You can still interact with people you don't actually know without exposing your personal information by adding Facebook's "Subscribe" button to your Timeline. This feature allows others to view your public updates without having to actually add them as Facebook friends. People Who Like To Friend Everyone You know the type, the person whose friends-list is probably filled with acquaintances. Trouble is, this can leave your personal information open for creeps to see, especially if your privacy settings allow friends of friends to view certain info. Your Loved One's Exes Even if your current beau is still really good friends with his/her ex, there's just something so awkward about adding them to your friends list. Not only will it test your willpower to resist Facebook stalking them, you might unwillingly be sharing comments, pictures and more that you'd rather not let them see. Your Boss Everyone makes "mistakes" on Facebook, but it's especially tricky if that mistake involves dissing your boss or job. You may end up getting fired or even blacklisted, so it'sprobably better to be safe than sorry.
People Who Like To Advertise Everything You know what we're talking about, those PR-type posts from people and companies that we don't even follow which flood our News Feeds. But there are those who just can't get enough of sharing these types of posts, which is equivalent to receiving spam mail from your mom. Unless you actually are into this sort of thing, keep these users off your friends list!
