Copy & Paste. Facebook Fail

I love Social Media, I enjoy it a lot, but can I tell you what boils my piss recently with Facebook. I can be halfway through a really inspiring, moving almost heartfelt post when BOOM. 

"Not everyone has the guts to copy & paste this"

Oh give me a break. You sucked me in, and then you spat me out like some bad-tasting semen.

I am all for opinions, but why can't I hear from YOU? Not some copy & paste bullshit, tell me how YOU feel. Tell me what makes YOU angry, what makes you passionate, post how you feel and I will be standing in the crowd cheering my head off for you. I don't always have to agree with what you say but I will defend your right to say it, (as long as you also respect my right to call you out on your crap)

But this Copy & Paste crap has to stop. it's cheap, it is Fast Food Facebook, it gets swallowed, digested and then forgotten. but it can cause serious irritation on the way through, (it can certainly cause upset)

Give me ONE post which is from the heart to "raise awareness" rather than ten that are just Copy & Paste.

I have seen Copy & Paste posts on everything from immigration to Jesus and quite frankly I AM SICK OF THEM.

Find your own words, use them, or stick to adding inspirational quotes on Minion posts.

Copy & Paste if you agree.



  1. YES!! You've hit the nail right on the head. I've been thinking 'omg, why didn't I know this about you' when I've read some of those posts - then realised they're cut and paste crap. So much wasted emotion.

  2. I have seen Copy & Paste posts on everything from immigration to Jesus and quite frankly I AM SICK OF THEM.

  3. Yes!! This all needs to fuck off!

  4. You forgot like for a prayer! A share will save your soul! But I totally agree and we'll put that's it's cheap ff fb and while I use my fb to main mainly it's got to be better than a copy and pasted load of crap

  5. Take a bow! Couldn't have put it better myself...

  6. OMG this needs to stop it drives me crazy!

  7. Amen!!

    (sorry... Couldn't scroll past without stopping and typing that for frar of being the cause of another tragedy )

  8. Woohoo!!!

    I'm sick of seeing them - I do feel used when I've spent a few minutes reading it just to see that it was a copy and paste job.

  9. They drive me bonkers. What's the point in them?! Seriously.

  10. OMG yes. I totally ignore them. Also the ones that go ..Not everyone will read this so post one word about blah blah blah

  11. So much this. It drives me up the sodding wall. I never copy & paste them, they just irritate me. I don't even understand what the point of it is, raising awareness? Does it really raise awareness? I don't even notice half of what they say because I spot the copy&paste nonsense at the bottom and skip it!

  12. Those, and the click bait posts irritate the shit out of me. This and this happened but you won't believe what happens next! No. I won't believe it and I won't find out because I'm not clicking on this nonsense!!!
