When I'm on Facebook, I often find something on my wall that just makes me spit out my coffee or whatever I happen to be drinking at the time. NOT cool because I'm sitting by all kinds of electronics. These status updates are funny, and I'm going to use a couple.

Overall, this book is basically a bunch of status updates various people have made on Facebook over a period of time - that's it - and a lot of them are humorous, while others just make you want to scratch your head and wonder what the poster was thinking. I'm not sure I would call it the funniest as the title indicates.

This is not something I would recommend and read in large chunks of time as it will certainly get old - I would recommend reading about a minute or two, then put it down, and pick it up again another day or later in the day: otherwise, to me, they just aren't funny after reading a while lot of them, but I did laugh a time or two when I read snippets here and there.

I picked this up for free during a Kindle promotion, and as I type this review the price has reverted to $2.99. Not sure I would pay for this one, but at the free pricing, plus a few chuckles here and there, it was okay.

This book was somewhat funny. Something more than others. I would have expected it to have been longer, Since Facebook is all the rage.
But interesting what people will say.

This book was just what I was hoping it would be - many short and funny postings, no particular order to them and easy to read in either one sitting or just a few passages at a time. Since the book is compiled in that manner, anyone can enjoy it in whatever manner they wish.

I did remember seeing some of these postings either as quotes from celebrities with possibly a slight change of words, or in other readings, but that didn't matter. The author did not claim any originality or grand promises of cutting edge humor - just posts found on Facebook that would be funny. He delivered on that message and it was fun to read.

I downloaded this when it was free and if it ever is again it's worth doing that, but I wouldn't pay money for this. This is just basically your traditional collection of jokes book being marketed with the Facebook angle, although it's a lot shorter, it'll take you about ten minutes to read from beginning to end. Most of these you would have heard when you were a kid and telling these sorts of jokes was all the rage. It's possible they have all been lifted from various joke books (there's even a Seinfeld line in here) and various Facebook users have passed them off as there own. I imagine the author will be paying a fair bit in compensation for unpaid royalties when the original comedians find out there work has been republished without credit. There's a few typos or missing words as well such as "Oh you're dating my ex. Cool, I'm eating a sandwich do what these leftovers too?" So editing hasn't been done much here.

Even though you've heard them before, there are a few funny jokes to relive. Definitely not the funniest Facebook status updates of all time. Not all are politically correct if this is an issue for you or you get offended easily. A selection of the best inside are as follows, but there's a lot of unfunny ones too.
Download it if it's free, if it's not give is a pass and just do a Google search for jokes.

The voices in my head may not be real but sometimes they sure come up with good ideas.

She asked me to make her feel special so I gave her a helmet and crayons

I was told by nutritionist that I needed to start burning some calories so I set a fat kid on fire.

Never get into fights with ugly people because they have nothing to lose.

I saw a woman wearing a sweat shirt that said "Guess" on it. So I asked her implants?

I think it's okay to talk to yourself but when the voices in your head start leaving you out of the conversation something is wrong.

Here's a great tip on how to loose weight. Turn your head to the right, and then turn it to the left. Repeat this exercise every time you are offered something to eat.

I married my wife for her looks but not the ones she's giving me lately.

It's the first five days after the weekend that are the hardest.

This short book is a very entertaining collection of typical Facebook status updates that you could probably find by scrolling down your wall. However,when compiled in this format, they offer a good amount of chuckles. Many of the posts are funny quotes that I had previously seen on Facebook (some I've seen a ton of times) but overall the content is varied enough to make anyone smile.

This is a decent read if you are in need of a mood booster. Only took off 1 star due to length (it is very short) and spelling / grammar mistakes (which were probably part of the original posts,but nevertheless made reading a little more tedious).

If this is the best 2012 has to offer, we're in trouble. I gave this book two stars because a (very) few statuses were actually semi-entertaining. Otherwise, it was pretty dry. As another reviewer stated, it is definitely NOT "knee-slapping funny". I was looking for a quick read and I wish I hadn't wasted the time on this one. Glad it was free, anyway.

Amusing but definately NOT knee slapping funny. More something to read when you're bored. Previous reviews overhype IMHO.

__To inject a little levity into the long pursuit of Peter Longerich's "Heinrich Himmler: A Life", I took time out to read “The Funniest Facebook Status Updates of ALL Time”, by Steve Slater. I’m guessing from the book, that Steve is a high school sophomore; his book is certainly sophomoric. It IS thankfully, short. It is NOT however, the funniest collection of anything of ALL time. What it is, can be illustrated by a sampling from the collection:
“Don’t you hate it when one string of your hoodie becomes longer than the other?”
No? How about:
“If Facebook, My Space and Twitter were merged into one account do you think they would call it, ‘My Twit Face?’
Get a grip on yourself and settle down; there’s one more; this “Facebook” material lifted from an old canard that pre-dates the social media site by years:
“I asked God for a bike, but I know that God doesn’t work that way …so, I stole a bike and now I’m asking God for forgiveness”.
A perusal of a half-dozen or so of these pages, each containing four or five of the funniest updates of ALL time, -and Heinrich Himmler begins to take on characteristics of Harpo Marx.
__Amazon does not provide a way of cutting a star in half. Reluctantly then: One wasted star.
