When someone posts an update on Facebook which is designed to show how miserable their life is. Some that go up are just plain attention seeking over a very minor event but some of course would appreciate a call as they maybe dont have someone IRL they can speak to.

Not to be confused with "cryptic" updates which don't get a response when asked "whats up" because they're just plain annoying and everybody hates them.

When you make an "update" on an operating system for your computer and the only known changes are that all wireless adapters, web cams, microphones, and headphones cease to work, resulting in trauma to the brain.
I was in complete excitement that all 75 updates were complete, but all hope crashed like the software in my computer as I realised it was one massive downdate.

An OS update to your cell phone that renders it slow as molasses and makes one want to pulverize it. A core strategy utilized by phone manufacturers (eg. Apple) to force people into upgrading their phones.
I downdated my phone with iOS 7, and now I'm screwed...up yours with a rubber hose Tim Cook!
iOS 7, Apple

Something that's SUPPOSED to be an update, but makes things much worse than before, or in other words, fucks shit up.

A few examples are:
Twitter's new page layout
Google+'s YouTube takeover
everything Tumblr does
WHAT?! Tumblr has ANOTHER downdate?! I swear, every time they change their site, they purposely set out to make the site more fucked every time.”
