24 Terrible And Cringey Facebook Pages I Liked As A Teen

Honestly, Facebook in 2009 was a lawless wasteland.

Posted on

Back in the dark ages of Facebook, and before I had discovered the rest of the internet, teenage me just loved to like terrible pages.

I know.

I know.

I joined Facebook in 2009, when I was 15. Here's the first photo of me on Facebook, on a school trip to Berlin hiding in the corner of a room watching Juno on an iPod Touch.

To avoid speaking to my roommates, naturally.

Anyway, turns out I never unliked any of them, so get ready for a wild tour around my teenage brain:

1. First of all there's this page dedicated to a photoshopped picture of a slide.

The early Facebook banter scene was barren.

The early Facebook banter scene was barren.

Here's a close-up of that slide.

It's good that someone commented "fake", so that people know there isn't an actual parent out there taking action shots of their kid on the murder slide.

2. This page dedicated to an important phenomenon.

I am so glad I was able to find solidarity with fellow people suffering from this affliction.

The last post that page did was in 2010.

That's some pretty high engagement.

3. A page about the kid from the Frosties advert.

British schoolkids were obsessed with stories about what happened to the kid in the Frosties advert. I don't recommend reading them – they're pretty dark.

4. This possibly ironic page.

I honestly have no idea what I was going for with this like.

5. Followed by this.

JESUS FUCKING CHRIST, 2009 SOPHIE, WHAT WERE YOU DOING??
Facebook: Why

6. This page, which is a complete mystery to me now.

Not a clue.

7. And this one.

I don't know why this comes under bags/luggage, but it probably should have been a tweet not a fanpage.

8. This page, which has over 1 million likes.

I can't imagine it was necessary to post regular updates to this page.

9. This Emma Watson fan page.

Here's the photo.

And now we know what Emma Watson would look like if her face was photoshopped on to an out-of-focus bald man.

10. Some hilarious school banter.

The last thing this page posted was a Probama meme.

RIP.

11. "Do You Remember Dustbin Dan?"

Dustbin Dan was a ventriloquist with a puppet who lived in a bin who came to my primary school to talk about Jesus. It's a bit weird, thinking about it now.

12. This page dedicated to a single line from The IT Crowd.

I have seen two episodes of The IT Crowd in my entire life, and neither of them contained this line. Probably liked this for attention.

13. This page about the café from The Apprentice.

I actually visited the café last year. Never give up on your dreams.

This is me outside the cafe. I had a bacon sandwich.

14. A silly Alan meme page.

This is a stupid meme from a British TV show where a beaver shouted "ALAN ALAN ALAN" loads. People shouted it at festivals. It's terrible.

16. This revelation.

It's nice to find a community of people with the same interests as you.

17. A series of absolutely terrible royal wedding pages.

Oh dear god.

It's a wonder it took me so long to come out...

19. This page, which is complete bollocks.

Remember when people in your class used to act like they hadn't done any work but they'd secretly done loads? I'm really sorry about that.

20. This page, which I'm pleased to say I didn't take advice from.

Stay in school, kids.

21. And this really lame one.

Thus I should delete my account.

22. This overly polite fanpage about Russell Brand.

As you can see it's a non-profit organisation, created in 2010 to bring together the 311 people who didn't want Russell Brand to get married.

Anyway, turned out pretty well for me and my fellow teenage Brand fans.

23. I hate Adam Sandler.

You can see they've written "Not Funny" on his forehead. Classic. Adam Sandler will be pleased to know that I have mellowed with age and feel indifferent towards his movies now.
