Is it more pathetic that people update their Facebook statuses for the smallest thing ever (Ex. "omg! making a sandwich! urrrg were all out of mayo!!!!") or something ridiculously life changing (Ex. The Rutgers kid that jumped off the G.W. bridge and made a status about it because he was video taped having sex with another guy.) Personally, I think both are very unnecessary. If it's something small... who cares. And if it's something life changing, I doubt everyone on your friend's list needs to know about it.
