** Want to visit a public Facebook page with posts that are somehow worth reading, even if 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."[[/labelnote]]

** The Treding section of the site used to provide news in succinct, accurate summaries. Now their summaries are vague clickbait that barely tells you anything about what's trending, or bring in very biased views about politics or social issues. For example, one trend talked about Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis's new son and his strange name, but don't actually mention the name.

** The "On This Day" feature for Facebook can be this for a lot of people. Sure, it can give you some posts from that one trip you went to a few years ago, but at the same time, it can constantly annoy and bug you about someone that you don't want to be reminded about anymore, including past relationships, people who aren't friends anymore, posts that you regret posting, and others. What really puts salt in the wound for the "past relationship" deal is that "On This Day" actually allows you to filter out memories of people ... however, it doesn't let you filter out people outside of your friend's list, which is usually the case for people who broke up after relationships.

However, this is recently averted, as Facebook allows people to filter out anybody, in or outside of their friend's list.

** The aptly named "Stalker Apps." Facebook has always been jokingly accused of being friendly to Stalkers since you can find out every detail you want to know about a person from the comfort of your home, but then facebook started adding mechanics in which you can actually find the exact spot a person is posting from. Now not only do stalkers know everything about you they now know where you are.
** It's not Paranoia if they're really out to get you: In 2014, [[http://www.slate.com/articles/health_and_science/science/2014/06/facebook_unethical_experiment_it_made_news_feeds_happier_or_sadder_to_manipulate.html it was revealed]] that Facebook was intentionally manipulating which posts its users saw (more negative, more positive, etc) in a social experiment to see how people reacted.

* {{Altitis}}: people often use multiple accounts in social games like ''VideoGame/MafiaWars'' (even though this is against Facebook's policies, as well as those of many other games).

** There was a dispute between Facebook and the norwegian outlet Aftenposten in september 2016. Facebook wanted to censor the picture of Napal Girl that Aftenposten depicted on their page, on the grounds that the image contained nudity. This escalated to a world wide backlash when Norway's Prime Minister, Erna Solberg, shared the image in support of Freedom of Speech and Facebook removed it. The issue quickly spread across social media and outlets, such as CNN, wrote about it. Facebook then allowed the image on the site.

*** This isn't exceptional, regular facebook users will notice memes and other types of posts will be extremely common for a while and then just kinda disappear.
