FACEBOOK is now taking down any posts that fail to boast of the user’s clear moral superiority.
Posts that are not about the joy of being a mother or sister, do not brag about athletic achievements or do not check into a desirable bar or restaurant are now in violation of the site’s terms of service and will be removed.
Joanna Kramer of Salisbury said: “There’s always that one post on your feed that isn’t passively-aggressively daring you to repost it in support of crime victims, or that annoying photo that isn’t of a glass of wine.
“Why bother posting at all if it isn’t a shot of your luggage on the bed of a fancy hotel with the caption ‘And relax’, when you’re doing nothing to bolster your fragile sense of self-worth in the eyes of others?
“I say ban them, which is why I’ve written ‘Like this if you’re sick of everyone who doesn’t post daily photos about how much they love their kids’ over a sunset I stole from Flickr.”
The new rules, which are expected to leave 95 per cent of Facebook users unaffected, will allow nude photographs or footage of terrorist activities as long as it is clear that they are only being posted to boost the user’s towering ego.
