If 'Friends' characters were on Facebook, their statuses would look like this


This week Friends co-creator Marta Kauffman quashed any hopes of the cast reuniting - they've moved on with their lives and so should we. 

But we can't help wonder how the characters would navigate the perils of 2015 if the show still existed. Would Monica have an enviable food blog? Would Rachel be the bragging mum on Facebook? Would Joey have a series of failed relationships behind him?

Well, that's exactly what one writer at American website Bustle wondered and decided to create a Facebook profile for each of the six leading friends.

"If our favorite Friends characters were real people, they would also be on social media by now," Lindsey Kupfer writes. "Pretty much every single person on Facebook commits a faux pas and I am convinced the Friends characters would be no different. The question here is what kind of online faux pas would they commit?" 

See her brilliant and on-point Facebook profile mock-ups for the female characters below.

Rachel Green: "The Obsessive Parent"

Kupfer writers that she sees Rachel as "first and foremost the person who is constantly changing her relationship status and airing her dirty laundry for her online friends to see."

"However, she is also the parent that is constantly updating her friend list on every move her daughter Emma makes. We all have friends like this."

Phoebe Buffay: "The Pushy Activist"

"There’s always one friend on the list who is constantly posting why it’s important to eat non-processed foods, or bumming everyone out with sad videos of puppies at the pound. Basically, Pheebs would bombard your wall with causes to join."

Monica Geller: "The Foodie"

"Monica is all about the food photos 100 percent of the time, especially when it’s pictures of her own food. Even though all of her foodie photos look professional, she expects her friends to reinforce the fact that she’s the best chef ever...Besides her staple food posts, you can always expect some type of Pinterest DIY-type project out of Monica’s page."
