Why Facebook Needs An ‘I Don’t Care’ Button [Infographic]

By Megan O'Neill 

When browsing through your Facebook newsfeed, how often do you come across friends’ posts that you just don’t care about?  Who cares what your cousin ate for lunch, or that your neighbor hasn’t done his laundry in three weeks?  That’s why, according to themaplekind.com, we are in dire need of an “I don’t care” button on Facebook.

A fun infographic from the site “where infographics meet comics and bullsh*t” reveals mind-blowing statistics, such as the fact that scrolling down your personal wall on Facebook, you will have a blank, uncaring face for three-fourths of it!  For this reason, they’re asking Zuck to create the “I don’t care” button and save us all a lot of frustration and stress-induced consequences (like “slashing children’s balls,” of course).

Check out the full infographic below for more of the consequences of the frustration induced by Facebook posts we don’t care about, as well as some of the most common cases we would need this button for and let us know what you think.  If there was an “I don’t care” button on Facebook, would you use it?
