Facebook has come a long way from the beginning. Remember when it was only open to people with a school email? Remember when you had to post a status with “is” in front of it? Then, remember when everyone and their grandmother were suddenly on Facebook, and you had to watch what you say, because your grandmother was reading? Remember when Facebook was for sharing your engagement, new relationships or pregnancies? Remember when Facebook was for sharing your baby’s poop habits?
Yes, that’s right. My Facebook feed seems to have acquired a bad habit for regular baby poop discussions. From multiple people, too. Now, I love babies as much as the rest of you, for sure. I love seeing pictures, and I do enjoy the occasional silly comment on what your kid is saying. Heck, I get that every day! But poop discussions, or worse, pictures? No thank you.
So, Facebook, I respectfully request that you please stop posting about poop. I enjoy seeing your baby updates and seeing your babies growing, especially since I don’t have one of my own! And I’m not squeamish, it’s just that, well…Facebook is for keeping up with my friends, not my friend’s baby’s bowel movements.
If, when I have a kid, I pull shit like this (pun intended) please call me out and show me this post.
And if I’ve offended, then I’m sorry. Actually, I’m not. Poop doesn’t belong on Facebook.
