The majority (85%) of women on Facebook indicate they have been annoyed by their online friends, according to a new survey from daily deals site Eversave.

Eversave surveyed more than 400 women on Facebook and found they have little tolerance for friends who use the site to brag or overshare.

The top three annoying behaviors on Facebook include:

*Complaining all the time (63 percent)

*Sharing unsolicited political views (42 percent)

*Bragging about seemingly perfect lives (32 percent)

Women do see some positive aspects of Facebook. Women appreciated the site for allowing them to see friends’ photos and videos (91%) and helping them search for old friends (76%).


Survey respondents opened up about their true feelings when asked if they were friends with any of these online personalities:

*The documentarian, they update their status with their every move (65 percent)

*The drama queen, everything’s a crisis with this friend (61 percent)

*The proud mama, they think Junior’s every move is newsworthy (57 percent)

*The incessant liker, they “like” every post (46 percent)

*The slactivist, don’t they know Facebook can’t cure cancer? (40 percent)

*The poser, they project an image of life so perfect, and it’s not true (40 percent)

“The ironic issue is that many women may not even know they are being classified or thought of that way by their Facebook friends,” said Charlene DeLoach Oliver, JD, CISR, an attorney-turned-Blogger at CharleneChronicles.com.

“Most people regard social media, like Facebook, as a place to gripe or boast because they often can’t do it in real life. In the alternative, they also use it as a tool to connect with people, stay abreast of breaking news, and find great deals, contests, and giveaways.”

    Haha, these are great! I would add the “No-content Chatter” to the list.

    You know those people who initiate a chat with you, but have nothing to say, leading to those awkward conversations where you really just want to sign off, but you feel like you should be polite.

    I can’t believe Eversave considers a sample that size (“Over 400 women”) representative in any way of the massive number of women on Facebook. Even if all 400 said yes to every question it would not make up 85% of the women on facebook!

    I’m sorry but this article reads like someone posted the results from a facebook poll they created and couldn’t get more than 400 people to participate.
