My advice is: don't bother reading it, your life will improve greatly. For important things there are other communication channels.
I may actually start blocking them or just removing them from my newsfeed. It's not so much a case of not reading it, it's more that I wish people's ability to recognise that which should remain private and which information is acceptable to announce to all and sundry.
The posts that annoy me more than anything are the ones along the lines of 'I can't believe that just happened', 'Just had the worst news ever' 'I am so upset right now', there are no further details so nosy buggers like me are left thinking WTF? Of course almost immediately some friends of the poster will respond with 'are you all right?', 'do you need to talk?' etc The original poster then replies to said suckers with 'I will send you a private message'. Why not just PM the friends who can give you a shoulder to cry on in the first place.
What is the point on posting to all and sundry about something that has upset you if you are going to be all coy and only discuss the details privately. To me it is attention seeking at it's worst.
I much prefer those that post 'I had a fucking awful day because my budgie flew out the window when I was cleaning it's cage and next door's cat had a tasty meal' than half posts that crave attention.
