** Want to visit a public Facebook page with posts that are somehow worth reading, even if you don't want to sign up? Then prepare to be [[CriticalAnnoyance constantly bothered]] by a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hover_ad hover ad]] that asks you to sign up for Facebook, '''''AND''''' blocks the public Facebook page that you're trying to read.[[labelnote:Note]]While it is possible to use an ad-blocker with the latest filters to remove that annoying hover ad, it's just a matter of time before Facebook bypasses those ad-blocking filters or decides to make use of a new scrappy mechanic that's even more annoying. Such as going back to the top of the page after clicking "View X more comments/replies", being unable to view the aforementioned comments even after clicking, or forcing you to do a [=CAPTCHA=] "Security Check" even if you've safely viewed the '''public''' Facebook page before.[[/labelnote]]

** "Attachment Unavailable. This attachment may have been removed or the person who shared it may not have permission to share it with you." To elaborate: If someone in a group links content on Facebeook but that content doesn't have a privacy setting of "Public", the post within the group will still be visible, ''but'' those who don't have viewing privileges for the shared content will get an "Attachment Unavailable" error, which can make affected members feel excluded from discussion (thus defeating the point of a group) for no clear reason. This applies ''even to group admins'', which means that if a group has posting guidelines, they cannot check to see if the linked content is acceptable to show within the group.

* 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.
