Internet News: Facebook has confirmed it will ban users who leave vague status updates in order to get attention.

The social network says it will no longer tolerate users posting updates such as ‘Why????’, ‘I Know…’ or ‘*sigh*’ to the site and have designed a special algorithm that will automatically delete the guilty account.

“As of next month we will adopt a strict new policy of banning users who leave vague updates with the sole purpose of getting other people to ask them if they are all right,” said a spokesman for Facebook’s User Operations Team.

“Extensive research shows that other users find these updates incredibly annoying, as they get in the way of seeing all the other great content on Facebook – such as the latest Gangnam Style parody videos, pictures of a child with cancer that can be cured by sharing the image, or people liking a company’s page in the hope of winning an iPad.”
