people who post on their facebook wall: "share this if you are not scared to do so"
and they either have numbers or colors and it's basically saying "who want to date me."
what do you think of these people?
I smell desperate bitches.
I never see them. And if I do I immediately hide their stupidity.
9/11 never happened. Don't believe the lies.
I'm too busy tweeting duckfaces with my Beats headphones on to care.
I pretty much never use facebook anymore. The stuff I do on there now is look up stuff for bands I listen to, see what retarded shit my "friends" on there say, and talk to my girlfriend :3

i don't have the internet but it doesnt sound nice
I unfriend them. If I really don't want to unfriend them, I leave a comment telling them why what they're doing is annoying.
I also link people to Snopes and other urban-legend-debunkers if they're 'sharing' urban legends. Do it two or three times with a slightly condescending remark, like 'Google a line next time', and people stop sharing garbage pretty quickly.
I just don't care, but I must admit I never thought of why they do it.
You say 'desperate', but that does have a very negative feel to it.
What if we put ourselves in their spot? It does reek a little of desperation, but then I just feel bad for them, they're also just like us, except they really, really, really want to be loved, and that's kind of sad really.
Once people start doing all of that bullshit I just unfriend them and am done with their bullshit.
People who make posts like that tend not to remain on my friends list long.
People like to moan a lot about the content on Facebook but I still maintain that the problem is people are too willing to accept friend requests. I feel like I really limit who is on my Facebook friends list but over the years I've noticed a little increase in the number of people who post random shite. I can't complain too much because I'm partial to posting songs every once in a while that nobody probably listens to.
However, if I was to scroll through my friend list now and get rid of everyone except those that I genuinely think of as good friends or people who I just generally find interesting, there wouldn't be many people left. We're probably talking < 50 and 50 would be pushing it.

It probably saves the CIA a lot of work though, with everyone voluntarily disclosing personal information on even their most obscure transactions. It's strange how FB is set aside from all other social communities in that users share so intimate details, especially when people actually use their real names and contact information. It feels like people actually disclose less when they have the benefit of anonymity than when they are really being themselves. Or maybe those are just two different groups of people, and the chunk that live ethereally are all living on FB, oblivious to privacy concerns or potential problems it may cause with future careers/relationships/etc.
I don't even use Facebook, I deleted my profile, a long ass time ago, but yeah, I used to see people like that all over FB, it was annoying as fuck.
Everyone with any sense of horror knows that the scariest thing is to keep something to yourself and not pass it / share it with others. Haven't they ever seen such films as The Ring? (Japanese not the shitty American pile of pathetic crap) If you share it with others then you will be spared, keeping it to yourself is what causes your demise. Thus any notion of "sharing to show you are not scared" is both wrong, pitiful, and laughable. As if you wanted to show you were not scared you wouldn't share it and would keep it to yourself, living with the notion that no one can help or save you.
So basically, no I don't know people like that as if I did I would swiftly remove them from any sort of list of people I would receive messages from. Then again I never go on the site anyway, so whatever.

I thought personal information could be set up to only show to the people you want?
Facebook is a place where desperate people go to get attention

Or where people with social lives go to keep in touch with one another and communicate. But sure, why not?
