If there's anything more annoying than people posting too much about their kids on Facebook, it's people who post too much about their pets.
And, above them on the social network's infuriating user rankings are the people who create profiles, send friend requests, and update statuses as their dog or cat. (Because everyone want's an update reading "I just napped for three hours in a sunbeam - cuz Imma kitty! LOL!" in their newsfeed).
But, that's all coming to an end.
Earlier this month, Facebook announced that it had over 80 million fake accounts that it would be purging from its rolls. And, according to recent reports, a large chunk of those soon-to-be deleted profiles belonged to dogs and cats (created by their owners). But, fear not, unbearably proud pet owners, you can still maintain a presence for Mr. Fluffy on Facebook. The official way to keep your pet on the site is to create a "public figure" profile, which other users may "like" to subscribe/connect.
Perfect example of a pet with a "public figure page? Mark Zuckerberg's dog, Beast.
So, basically, instead "Why won't you accept Fido's friend request?" you'll now hear "Why won't you like my dog on facebook?!"
Thanks for nothing, Zuckerberg.
