  • reminders that Jesus loves you
  • Memes of the Most Interesting Man in the World
  • Political arguments (and I don't mean that in the sense of reasoned political discourse, but snipes at various candidates and their afficionados.  Translate this to mean ad hominem arguments.)
  • Lots of selfies and updated photos, making me wonder how often the people I know take photos of themselves
  • Photos of children and grandchildren (which I thought was the point of FB)
  • Lots and lots of Jack-ass or "America's Home Video"-type videos
  • Plugs for products, advertising either paid for or not

  • invitations to online games
  • and more inspirational quotes
and much more jumbled things.
