Candace Cameron-Bure wants her Facebook haters to know that she sees their comments and is not impressed with the vitriol regarding her religious beliefs.

Having joined the Dancing with the Stars cast for Season 18, the former Full House star is back in the spotlight, and for her, this hasn't been totally positive.

"[L]ately, as my FB page has been growing rapidly with new 'likes,' it’s becoming a sensitive issue for me to post because of the dread in my heart," she wrote.

"Knowing I am going to get discouraging comments," she says, makes it less fun to even post on her page, which has more than half a million Likes.

"[A]ll I see is a bunch of religious people throwing around bible verses attacking each other," she writes, with non-religious people then going after them for it.

Cameron defended her religious beliefs, but said that is is never her intention to make her Facebook page all about them or to cause any sort of controversy:

You would think that here in the 2010s, a.k.a. The Digital Age, enough of these stories would've gone viral for people to keep their social media use in check.

You would be very, very wrong, but you'd think.

Anything you say or do online can and will become social media fodder. At least there's a possibility of it. This Murphy's Law of the Internet is undeniable.

Time and again, people just don't get it, though.

Whether they're tonguing the food at the restaurant where they work or having profane thoughts about others, these events inexplicably make their way online.

Then other people see them. The rest is history.

Here are 13 humans who found out the hard way that posting controversial or just plain stupid things online can cost them their jobs ... for better or for worse:

@CarlyCrunkBear
Carly "@CarlyCrunkBear" McKinney, whose handle says it all really, was a 10th grade math teacher who often posted images like this on Twitter. Her employers were not happy and placed her on administrative leave. Her students thought she was pretty awesome, and protested to get her back. To no avail. She was fired in the end.

Kelly Blazek, a Cleveland-based PR executive and authority on local communications jobs listings, was undone by the same thing that built her up:

Social media.

Kelly Blazek Letter

With her ego boosted by the position she cultivated via LinkedIn and other networks, she soon became an Internet villain at the hands of someone she shunned.

The irony.

Blazek, for a little more back story, produced and distributed a popular email that culled job openings from online job sites and from her own contacts.

She worked for 10 years building her contacts and selecting the list of people who receive the email, limiting recipients largely to those with experience.

Couples on Facebook can be cute. At least we assume that it's happened before. It's theoretically possible at least. That's about as positive as we can be.

Why? Because most of the time, couples on Facebook are beyond irritating, cramming their news feeds with their declarations of love around the clock.

All the while, making us wish we could unfriend them without drama.

They commemorate their one-month anniversary with cheesy pics. They whisper what should be private sweet nothings into the Facebook ether.

They're insufferable. And you know just who we're talking about.

Below, scroll through 11 of the most annoying couples on Facebook, and see if you recognize these kinds of online antics from any of your friends and family ...

Remember when Walter White had to get chemotherapy? That was a crappy day!

And when he chose to sell meth under the pseudo name of Heisenberg? Hey, You Only Live Once!

Following Facebook's 10-year anniversary last week, in which the company celebrated with a special "Look Back" video, South African comedy duo Derick Watts & The Sunday Blues has taken the same concept and applied it to Walter White.

Some trolls end up under bridges, some trolls end up in jail for not covering their digital tracks.

A British woman angry with her father and step-mother set up fake Facebook accounts in their names and then used the accounts to send herself abusive - and often explicit - messages.

24-year-old Michelle Chapman kept up the posts for more than a year and then reported them to the police.

Authorities questioned her puzzled family and even detained her step-mother before tracing the accounts back to Chapman's own computer.

Officers report she was seeking revenge on her father for past grievances and was trying to break up his marriage.

Her defense attorney argued Chapman suffers from mental health problems, but that didn't prevent the court from sentencing her to 20 months in jail.

They say breaking up is hard to do, but when it happens over Facebook, for half the world to see? It can get awkward as well. Very, very awkward.

The social network, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this week, has made passive-aggressive over-sharing into an art form in the last decade.

Facebook has become such a part of the fabric of life that many of us can't subsist without it, and that includes posting personal relationship woes.

It's sad if you're the person who gets dumped via status update, but it can also be pretty entertaining when these things go viral ... which they always do.

This is the Internet, after all. You share it, it's public. Scroll through 13 of the most awkward breakups we never should've known about, but since we can ...

As Facebook increases in popularity with older generations, so do awkwardly amusing exchanges like these that may start driving younger users away.

A lot of "kids these days" prefer Instagram, Vine, Tumblr, SnapChat, etc., and it's easy to see why. This is THE PREMIERE social media hub for mom and dad!

Using it to embarrass their family members, intentionally or otherwise, parents are taking to "The Facebook" in record numbers, and with hilarious results.

Can a girl not comment on Taylor Swift's profound lyrics without her dad creeping? Can a dude not post a selfie without his dad mocking the same pose?!

Sure, they may not know what DTF means, but that won't stop them from commenting on it, or posting old pics of you, or TMI updates about their own lives.
