I love Facebook as it's a great way to stay in touch with friends and family and am often on there several times a day. However, I have a few people who seem to live on there and can post dozens of links every day or updates of every bite they eat/song they hear/step they take, so that my entire news feed becomes just a list of their postings. In order to save my sanity, I simply hid their notifications from appearing in my feed. Simple enough, right?
Well, I got caught. One of these people is a woman in my study group who posts nothing but tangentially related articles all day long. A few weeks ago we were hanging out and she kept mentioning these articles and asking me if I read this one or that one, and I truthfully said I hadn't gotten around to it, hadn't seen it in my feed, don't have time to read everything that comes across my computer, etc. Eventually she said, "You don't seem to see anything I post!" and I demurred saying Facebook sometimes favors certain feeds over another. Apparently, it's incredibly important to her that I read these articles so now she tags me in every.single.one of them, so that at least once an hour I get a notification that I've been tagged in a post. I largely ignore these too, but once again my news feed is entirely her articles, which I'm not interested in or have already read.
How do I make this stop without hurting the feelings of a friend and colleague?
