As someone who indulges in the world of Facebook, I probably shouldn't even allow myself to get peeved out by any of the aspects of Facebooking, because it just seems like opening up a can of worms, BUT...
I just want to quickly peeve out about the self-lovin that goes on in excess in the world of Facebook. 
A good way to check yourself to see if you are a Facebragger is to ask - Is everything that I write on this social network an attempt to create or reinforce the idea that I am awesome?  In other words - Do I strictly write about my kick-ass vacation, how many runs I shredded on my ski weekend, my high end second home, the over exaggerated accomplishments of my children, a compliment I received that no one else would have ever known about, my prowess at the gym, etc, etc, ad nauseam?  If you answered yes to any of these questions, now is the time to check yo self before you wreck yo self, in the infamous words of Ice Cube.  Facebragging can lead to the loss of friends, the loss of respect, and perhaps worst of all, it can lead to those you know talking and laughing about you behind your back.  (Trust me, this happens.  "Can you believe that so-and-so actually wrote that?  It's classic!")
Still not sure if you have fallen into the ugly trap of Facebragging?  Unsure if the worst of you has risen it's ugly head?  Ask yourself this (and try to answer honestly)...Are you awesomer on Facebook than you are in real life?
