Facebook Personalities: Part 1

Well, I'm sure all of you, like me, are avid Facebook users. Just like in real life, every person has a personality online. Most often, it's just a more emphasized reflection of how the person is in the flesh, but sometimes, a completely different personality takes over on FB. It really just depends on the person.

A personality that I'm sure you all have come across.

The Constant Updater

This person updates his or her status constantly from their laptop, phone, iPad or any other device they have! You won't miss a moment of this person's life, even if it is the dullest moment possible, even when absolutely NOTHING is happening, they're going to let you know. As a matter of fact, this person has made life very dangerous, because if anyone wanted to rob him/her, the burglar would know EXACTLY when to go into their house and what to steal because, of course, this idiot updates when he/she bought a new Macbook, TV, PS3 or phone.

4:51 pm: "Heading to New York for the weekend! YAY!"
5:30 pm: "On my way to New York! Will miss everyone!"
5:42 pm: "Stopped to get snacks and ran into an old friend. What were the chances?"
7:00 pm: "Just checked into my hotel. It's a little small but Alhamdulillah!"

OMG! You probably even know what this person had for breakfast, lunch and dinner and what time they took a crap! I bet if he/she went to Hajj, they'd focus more on updating their status, rather than experiencing the spiritual journey.

12:02 pm: "Just got to Haram. Subhanallah! It's crowded!"
12:10 pm: "Completed my first round around the Kabah!"
12:20 pm: "Done round two. Alhamdulillah!"
12:45 pm: "Off to drink Zam Zam...can't's so hot!"
12: 47pm: "Zam Zam was so refreshing! Time for Sayi!"

LOL I really hope that they wouldn't do that but all signs point to this inevitable end!

That's all for now. The next Facebook Personality will be up shortly!

Until next time...


  1. looooooool
    yeah there are really crazy people!

  2. LMAO! I know a woman updating status like that, detailing everything, from changing diapers to the thunderstorm or rats or fly or mosquitoes she just saw... too much unnecessary info. That is so pathetic!

  3. i actually laughed out loud when I red this entry. nice one sis! LOL.

  4. So true! Some people are so busy on facebook, they aren't really living their life because they're busy commentating! Remember to include the show off user, those who love to update their latest photo-vacation, or latest iPhone purchase, etc, etc, lol

    Subhana Allah, you blog of a pet peeve of mine! It doesn't only happen on FB...but also Twitter, Blogger, Wordpress, etc.

    Dear avid updater,
    Insecure much?

    And the Hajj updates made me chuckle, only because I can soooo see that happening. Subhana Allah. May Allah Purify our souls and perfect our ibaada. Ameen.


  9. Salaam sister in Islam,
