* NightmareFuel: Some people often post disturbing or horrific pictures (usually for chainposting and hoaxing, if not actual news) and get away with it. It often appears in the timeline [[Main/JumpScare at the least you expect it]]. Mitigated by how Facebook will intensely blur those kinds of pictures with obvious warning messages, but outward links are usually not blurred.

** [[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/goose-on-fire-fire-duck Goose on Fire]] when Facebook censoring a graphic, violent image about a goose head being set on fire... Except not really, the fire is actually a campfire behind the goose, and it appears like that because the way the picture is taken.



* NightmareFuel: The Ashleigh Hall incident, and a few other ones.

Added DiffLines:

** "You ok, hun? PM me" - as a way of mocking intentionally vague posts throwing shade at unnamed people.
* {{Narm}}: Emotional posts or rants can often become this if they're full of spelling mistakes.


Added DiffLines:

** The like symbol[[note]]A giant blue thumbs up[[/note]] that gets sent as an emoji - due to people usually sending it instead of replying to a message. It's gotten a reputation as a rude way to say "we're done here".

* DoubleStandard:
** Facebook's [[http://www.theregister.co.uk/2013/05/29/campaigners_get_facebook_response/ announcement]] of a new policy has stuck some users as this. The new rules would ban anything that "promotes violence" against women. While this sounds like a good idea many have criticized the rather vague and loose wording as well as the fact that is does not offer the same protections for men. The fact that it bases its judgments and training solely on feminist claims and ([[UsefulNotes/{{Feminism}} misunderstood]]) beliefs has also drawn [[http://www.avoiceformen.com/feminism/feminist-lies-feminism/facebook-hates-women/ some attention.]]
** Regardless of your opinions on the matter, it is obvious that Facebook has a very strong anti-gun bias. Pro-gun Facebook pages get closed down on a regular basis for no stated reason, while groups such as Mom's Demand Action literally support genocide against gun owners and are never punished by Facebook.
** While hate groups against the usual targets (Jews, African Americans, LGBT people, etc.) are not tolerated, hate groups against [[AcceptableEthnicTargets smaller, lesser known minorities]] (lesser known in the US at least) and the "majority" groups, like whites, males, or heterosexual/cisgender people, are often left alone no matter how many times they get reported for being racist.

** You occasionally get notifications regarding your pages and while you can turn down the frequency of page notifications, you can't turn them off ''completely''. Woe betide someone who makes a page for a joke or some other throwaway purpose, forgets it exists, and finds themselves suddenly being [[UnwantedAssistance pelted]] with "People haven't heard from you in a while," "''(page)'' has ''x'' new likes''," etc. notifications. And to make matters worse...
