Most Annoying Types Of Facebook Posts That Should Not Appear Anymore

Most Annoying Types Of Facebook Posts That Should Not Appear Anymore

This is a very, very serious and important article that, more or less, all of us can relate to and can agree to. Yes, we all have those people on our Facebook who continue to post things that none of us care about. These posts are annoying and they really are none of our business. Here is a list of such irksome posts for you to laugh out loud (lol) to.

Introducing The Kings and Queens of Narcissism

The selfie is the latest trend. Apparently, according to a few studies, people who are addicted to taking selfies are mentally ill. Starting from “duck-face” selfies to “peculiar-angle-to-make-me-look-weirder-and-thinner” selfies to “half face” selfies — are all blocking the newsfeed. Now, taking your own picture every now and then is normal. Even posting one selfie per day is still tolerable. But uploading differently angled poses photos every few hours?

For example, a “here’s my pre-lunch photo” followed one hour later with “here’s my post-lunch photo. Do I look thin?” That is when you really start getting irritating. And believe me, I happen to know handful of people who click their own images and upload them at least five to six times a day.

Check-in to the bathroom? Done.

There are those who will flood our newsfeeds with all the check-ins to every. single. place. Look, we are not interested in the places you go. I mean, it is a different thing if you are checking in at a restaurant with a bunch of your buddies, or checking in at a resort for a family vacation. But, checking in at your local mall, at your local supermarket, or even going to the loo? That’s too much. We don’t really want to know every detail concerning where you go on a daily basis. Please spare us!

e-PDA much?

E-PDA stands for e-Public Display of Affection. Can you relate to this one? So, let me get this straight: we are really glad that you have found your one true love. And your soulmate does seem to come directly from a fairytale. But, updating us on this every single day? It gets a bit too much.

On the other hand, there are those who, once upon a time, got rejected by one person. Unfortunately, the ranting about how that person and their gender is the worst never seems to end — these kinds of posts also make the list.

The circulating series of statuses…

In other words, circulating “chain” statuses. These statuses are the ones that state: “if you don’t post this status to 10 people in your list, then in 10 days some evil dude will come and swipe you away.” You know what I mean, right? For your kind information, no evil dude will swipe me away if I ignore your silly thread. If any evil man wants to come to me, he’ll come to me regardless of whether I post your chain status or not.

… and then sending requests for Candy Crush & FarmVille.

Dear friends, Thank you for such requests, but seriously, I don’t want to play Candy Crush and Farmville with you. If I were interested, I would have accepted your request on the very first day! Continuously sending these requests is one of the most annoying things you can do on Facebook. I don’t have a crush on any candy. And, as for your farm, grow a real farm. Maybe I will help you, one day.

Posting ambiguous statuses don’t make you cool

One to two updates about you being a genius is OK. But bragging about it everyday? No way. We understand that you have achieved a lot, that you have met some celebrity once in your life, or that you have had your first official dinner at a 10-star hotel — that doesn’t mean you have to post about these things constantly to remind us. We all have successes under our belts that we don’t feel the need to show the world every single day.

Short-cut languages, no punctuation, cryptic messages.

“Omg! U r so cte! Hw r u? M fne. We shd hng ot smedy. Dnt u agr? Ttyl!”

I just wonder: with the amount of time it takes to write these cryptic messages, couldn’t you just write in full form? Maybe writing like this is funky for some people, but for general human beings, it takes a lot of frustrating time to make out those words.

And, lets not forget about the lack of punctuation. Writing a proper sentence takes a bit more than just tagging a period or exclamation mark on the end. Otherwise, something like this will happen:

    The random adding of friends

    So, you have 20 friend requests today. Out of the 20, you don’t know 18 of them. But they have added you, right? So, in return, you accept their requests.

    Why? According to some, they simply approve because they want to increase the number of friends in their list. To look famous? Guys, this isn’t some 90s chat rooms where you meet random people and make friends. This is a platform where you stay connected with people you already know, people who might live in different parts of the world. You communicate with them so you can see their updates on their lives. Just don’t add strangers, please.

    There are many other annoying Facebook posts that shouldn’t appear anymore. But, if I continue writing, I might just end up writing a book. I know that this particular social network means a lot for some of you out there, to show how your life is progressing every day and every hour, but there are other people who just use this platform for entertainment, not for entertainment-gone-haywire. Thank you for understanding.

    7 Ways To Deal With Negative People

    7 Ways To Deal With Negative People

    Some people will have a rain cloud hanging over them, no matter what the weather is outside. Their negative attitude is toxic to your own moods, and you probably feel like there is little you can do about it.

    But that couldn’t be farther from the truth.

    If you want to effectively deal with negative people and be a champion of positivity, then your best route is to take definite action through some of the steps below.

    1. Limit the time you spend with them.

    First, let’s get this out of the way. You can be more positive than a cartoon sponge, but even your enthusiasm has a chance of being afflicted by the constant negativity of a friend.

    In fact, negativity has been proven to damage your health physically, making you vulnerable to high levels of stress and even cardiac disease. There’s no reason to get hurt because of someone else’s bad mood.

    Though this may be a little tricky depending on your situation, working to spend slightly less time around negative people will keep your own spirits from slipping as well.

    2. Speak up for yourself.

    Don’t just absorb the comments that you are being bombarded with, especially if they are about you. It’s wise to be quick to listen and slow to speak, but being too quiet can give the person the impression that you are accepting what’s being said.

    3. Don’t pretend that their behavior is “OK.”

    This is an easy trap to fall into. Point out to the person that their constant negativity isn’t a good thing. We don’t want to do this because it’s far easier to let someone sit in their woes, and we’d rather just stay out of it.

    But if you want the best for this person, avoid giving the false impression that their negativity is normal.

    4. Don’t make their problems your problems.

    Though I consider empathy a gift, it can be a dangerous thing. When we hear the complaints of a friend or family member, we typically start to take on their burdens with them.

    This is a bad habit to get into, especially if this is a person who is almost exclusively negative. These types of people are prone to embellishing and altering a story in order to gain sympathy.

    Why else would they be sharing this with you?

    5. Change the subject.

    When you suspect that a conversation is starting to take a turn for the negative, be a champion of positivity by changing the subject. Of course, you have to do this without ignoring what the other person said.

    Acknowledge their comment, but move the conversation forward before the euphoric pleasure gained from complaining takes hold of either of you.

    6. Talk about solutions, not problems.

    Sometimes, changing the subject isn’t an option if you want to deal with negative people, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still be positive.

    I know that when someone begins dumping complaints on me, I have a hard time knowing exactly what to say. The key is to measure your responses as solution-based.

    You can do this by asking questions like, “Well, how could this be resolved?” or, “How do you think they feel about it?”

    Use discernment to find an appropriate response that will help your friend manage their perspectives.

    7. Leave them behind.

    Sadly, there are times when we have to move on without these friends, especially if you have exhausted your best efforts toward building a positive relationship.

    If this person is a family member, you can still have a functioning relationship with them, of course, but you may still have to limit the influence they have over your wellbeing.

    That being said, what are some steps you’ve taken to deal with negative people? Let us know in the comments.
