The annoyance of social media

I love social media! I love that I can connect to people I’ve never met and people far away. But having said that there are those things that niggle at me sometimes

1) Bad nail varnish photos! The ones where they say “I love my new polish” but it looks so messy, like a child has done it. Do they go out with it looking like that?

2) Moaners! Now we all like a moan now and again, there is nothing wrong with that, I’m talking about the ones that only moan, nothing else.

3) Poorly children. The parents that complain of their children being ill constantly! “I think x may have this now” I’ve had times where the illness seemed to never leave the house. But these people just come across as worriers.

4) Foodporn! I can’t stand the phrase. I watched a YouTube video once (search it) it just made me see it in a totally different way!

5) Actually I don’t like any of the porn phrases, they are cringe worthy. It’s like everyone has forgotten what the word porn means!

6) Shortening text! I can’t stand this one! Can they not see what morons they look? Especially when it’s every word! And sometimes it’s shortened by 1 letter, I mean 1 letter, why? Like wiv instead of with? What’s the bloody point?

7) Heavy breathers on video. It can be an innocent video of their child/ren but they sound like they have just run a marathon! Don’t go so close when you video or better still, hold your bloody breath!

8) People that believe fake news and tweet/post it straight away! “oh my god R.I.P ……” etc You just look like a knob!

9) Fishing for compliments! Those people that constantly go on about failing as a parent, feel really fat etc etc. Not on odd occasions, we’ve all been there, I mean ALL THE TIME! It’s just annoying!

10) Hashtags! The ones that basically just hashtag the whole frigging tweet! No-one wants to read a load of hashtags that don’t make sense, only weirdo’s and spammers!

11) Soaps! People that constantly update us on the latest soaps. You are aware there not real aren’t you? I don’t watch the soaps and I don’t want to see your crap commentary on it either!

What would you add to this list?

    i love this!!!!!! you shouldnt have been worried! PS im a hashtagger (on instagram!) oooppsss!!! i think its the only one im guilty of 🙂 XX

  3. Kinda hope im not on your list of tweeters falling into any of these :o! I would add on the ones on facebook who update us about everything! Or the ‘boasters’ I have a few on there! I don’t want to know that you are out drinking again or need another new outfit, need a babysitter coz it’s been x amout of days (last weekend) that you went out! Especially as I work for a living and can’t afford it! (yes this is aimed at someone specific lol)

  4. I wrote a post a few weeks ago about when twitter is more suitable than Facebook.
    I hate it when Facebook is used like twitter. Facebook should be for sharing photos, not a status update every time your child uses the potty/eats something/farts.

    Social media is annoying however I think it’s brilliant for consumers. I managed to sort out issues with my car through social media so I am all for it!

  6. Sonya Cisco says:

    Reality TV tweets or spoiler tweets about programmes I havent seen yet both bug me!

  7. I agree with your list and as someone who posts a lot of food photos to Instagram I never use the ‘P’ word and find it very strange in any context! What I don’t get are the punctuation marks that are meant to mean something like :-). What does this all mean?!

  8. Rachel says:

    Ha…. got to love a bit of foodporn though, always makes me hungry! I do hate spoliers x

  9. Polly Davies says:

    LOVE this 🙂 it made me giggle {and I agree with pretty much all of it}

  10. Cass@FrugalFamily says:

    That’s a lot of dislikes and I think I’ve probably been guilty of a fair amount of them at some point 😉

  11. Facebook annoys me much more than twitter. The status’ like “I am so angry now!” which fishes for why are you angry etc etc – boring, get to the point x

  12. I hate it when people change one letter without even shortening the word – so for example something like ‘kool’. Possibly labels me as not very cool though.

  13. Who doesn’t love a bit of foodporn eh? lol 😉

  14. StephsTwoGirls says:

    Agree totally, but am going to have to add exclamation marks…!!! I’m guilty as charged – and for 😉

  15. OH no…. you must hate me! I’m guilty of umm, yep, all of it! :/ #GUILTY

  16. Kgomotso says:

    Oh I’ve got one! People who never post anything any other time except to show off about going on holiday/new designer bag/ whatever. Like there’s nothing else happening in their lives. Ever.

  17. Kara says:

    I totally agree – can’t stand hashtags everywhere and the people that are hypochondriacs – i may have unfollowed or muted some of those!

  18. I love hashtags. I find them very useful but some people should learn how to use them 🙂

  19. I don’t think I can put it any better than farmerswifeandmummy! #greatpost!

  20. It is the video’s on FB that get me – the horrid ones that a ‘friend’ has had to share and it pops up on my newsfeed 🙁

  21. I hate heavy breathers too! And everything with porn. It’s like they totally devaluated the word. Great list!

    I have to admit when it comes to the words like foodporn the one I hate it when people use rape out of term like frape etc.. Like it’s just a good old joke.
