Don't you hate uploading a post to Facebook, only to have absolutely no one comment on your well-thought-out witticisms?

Maybe (just maybe) people don't like your Facebook updates because those rants, raves and ridiculous statuses annoy a huge majority of the digital population.

Heck, with all the time we're spending on Facebook these days, we've all probably committed a faux pas or two. Or three...

In the slideshow below, we've laid out a few Facebook no-nos that can really grate on people's nerves. From obnoxious, opinionated messages to wall post resembling spam -- these are the seven reasons why you might not be so popular on Facebook.
