Jesse Cottle and his wife Kelly recently posted what they believed to be an everyday photo of themselves to Facebook:

The San Diego residents were posing with family members for some beach-based pictures when Cottle took off off his prosthetic legs and jumped on Kelly's back so she could carry him in to the water.

Jesse, a former Marine, lost both his legs after stepping on an IED in Afghanistan in 2009 and this is a simply how he has to move around sometimes.

He and Kelly met while he was recovering and they got married last year.

And they thought little of the above image when putting it online... only to watch the hits and comments continue to climb on an hourly basis.

"Everything just kept skyrocketing," Jesse told 10 News of the social media reaction. "And we were just astounded."

As a typical Facebook user knows, out of our (on average) several hundred "friends," often only a handful are "real" friends regularly seen face-to-face.

Mikel McLaughlin has set out to change that.

The 35-year-old set out in a red Volkswagen Beetle on a journey to spend time with each of his 400-plus Facebook friends ... some for the first time ever.

McLaughlin is documenting the social-media-meets-real-world adventure on his website We're Friends, Right? He posts photos of his friends like this one:

Mikel McLaughlin and Friend

McLaughlin tells People:

"I recognized that I had many Facebook friends with which I had little-to-no actual relationship. I wanted to change that, or at least see if it was possible to do so."

"I feel that having a closer relationship with a person helps me to be better. It's easy to belittle, berate and dismiss somebody with which you have no relationship."

"But when you spend time at their dinner table, play games with their kids, and hear about their lives, it's a little bit more difficult to be unkind and uncaring toward them."

There's nothing worse than scrolling through Facebook on your lunch break and coming across something better left NEVER, EVER, EVER SEEN - EVER - but because some parents just do not understand social media, there it is in your news feed, floating on the Internet like the floater in the toilet.

Because that's what it is. A poop picture courtesy of a parent who doesn't seem to realize that poop? Not the cutest thing their little cutems is ever going to do.

Not by a long shot. We promise.

Little Booger
Newsflash, folks! NO1CURR about your kid's boogers. Nope. They don't.

Or there's the parent who constantly complains about everything from Daylight Savings Time and the lack of sleep to the fact that stores don't open at 9:00 because that's when she's in the parking lot and doesn't Target know that? I mean, doesn't the world revolve around her kid's nap schedule??

FOR THE LOVE. No. No it does not. So just stop it with that already!

And stop it with your Mommyjacking, too!

(Mommyjacking: a term used to describe the event which occurs when someone posts something great they've accomplished and a mommy comes along to say "nothing's better than being a mommy!" or "just you wait until you're a mommy!")

Anyway, scroll through the cringe-worthy gallery above for examples of 15 people who need to get the EFF OFF of Facebook IMMEDIATELY.

And just for fun, after the jump, let's also pay homage to those parents who take to social media to shame their children for myriad offenses.

Because nothing says "this is for your own good" like humiliating kids on Facebook with an embarrassing picture that gets to live forever and ever thanks to technology ...

When a 12-year-old girl posted racy photos of herself on Facebook, her mom was upset. So she beat her HARD and posted a video of THAT on Facebook:

This was not your run-of-the-mill beating, either.

Helen Bartlett whipped her offspring with a strap for several minutes, causing the video to go viral and spark a heated debate over corporal punishment.

Some viewers support the mom's actions, while others are appalled, for obvious reasons - and this isn't even the full-length video she put online.

You can see the uncensored version Barlett shared - and has no regrets about. She says she is "prepared to go to jail" to set her "problem child" straight.

She says she beat her daughter for posting underwear photos and sexting, and did it to keep her off the streets and stop her from getting pregnant.

Noble goals, to be sure ... but seriously?

Very sad news out of North Carolina last week.

Colleen Cudney was convicted of DUI in 2012, and placed on probation as a result. One condition of her probation was to remain alcohol free.

Imagine how spooked she must have been the day after St. Patrick’s Day, when the 22-year-old was summoned for a random breathalyzer test.

The Westland, Michigan resident passed, but the made the unbelievably baffling to celebrate the good news on Facebook. People are not smart.

Police told WDIV she posted, “Buzz killer for me, I had to breatalyze this morning and I drank yesterday but I passed thank god lol my dumbass."

A buzz killer for her, indeed.

But not as much so as when Colleen Cudney's LOL-tastic Facebook post got the attention of the Westland police, who notified her probation officer.

Not everybody fakes it for Facebook, but we all know the type who does.

If everyone's marriage were like some people make it seem for the sake of appearances online, the divorce rate would be like zero percent in the U.S.

Some married couples opt for the ironic, but honest route of sharing 25 reasons your kid is crying and other such humorous, realistic portraits of family life.

A lot of people still try to pass it off like some sort of utopia, however.

If you trusted the Facebook feeds of some of your friends, marriage and child-rearing are just so blissful, euphoric and rewarding ... why would anyone not do it?

Check out 11 pics of what a Facebook Marriage looks like ...

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:

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.
