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.

    12 Things You Should Remember When Feeling Lost in Life

    12 Things You Should Remember When Feeling Lost in Life

    Even the most charismatic people you know, whether in person or celebrities of some sort, experience days where they feel lost in life and isolated from everyone else.

    While it’s good to know we aren’t alone in this feeling, the question still remains:

    What should we do when we feel lost and lonely?

    Here are 12 things to remember:

    1. Recognize That It’s Okay!

    The truth is, there are times you need to be alone. If you’ve always been accustomed to being in contact with people, this may prove difficult.

    However, learning how to be alone and comfortable in your own skin will give you confidence and a sense of self reliance.

    We cheat ourselves out of the opportunity to become self reliant when we look for constant companionship.

    2. Use Your Lost and Loneliness as a Self-Directing Guide

    You’ve most likely heard the expression: “You have to know where you’ve been to know where you’re going.”

    Loneliness also serves as a life signal to indicate you’re in search of something. It’s when we’re in the midst of solitude that answers come from true soul searching.

    Remember, there is more to life than what you’re feeling.

    3. Realize Loneliness Helps You Face the Truth

    Being in the constant company of others, although comforting sometimes, can often serve as a distraction when we need to face the reality of a situation.

    Solitude cuts straight to the chase and forces you to deal with the problem at hand. See it as a blessing that can serve as a catalyst to set things right!

    4. Be Aware That You Have More Control Than You Think

    Typically, when we see ourselves as being lost or lonely, it gives us an excuse to view everything we come in contact with in a negative light. It lends itself to putting ourselves in the victim mode, when the truth of the matter is that you choose your attitude in every situation.

    No one can force a feeling upon you! It is YOU who has the ultimate say as to how you choose to react.

    5. Embrace the Freedom That the Feeling of Being Alone Can Offer

    Instead of wallowing in self pity, which many are prone to do because of loneliness, try looking at your circumstance as a new-found freedom.

    Most people are in constant need of approval of their viewpoints. Try enjoying the fact that  you don’t need everyone you care about to support your decisions.

    6. Acknowledge the Person You Are Now

    Perhaps you feel a sense of loneliness and confusion because your life circumstances have taken you away from the persona that others know to be you.

    Perhaps the new you differs radically from the old. Realize that life is about change and how we react to that change. It’s okay that you’re not who you used to be.

    7. Keep Striving to Do Your Best

    Often those who are feeling isolated and unto themselves will develop a defeatist attitude. They’ll do substandard work because their self esteem is low and they don’t care.

    Never let this feeling take away your sense of worth! Do your best always and when you come through this dark time, others will admire how you stayed determined in spite of the obstacles you had to overcome.

    And to live your best life, you must do this ONE thing: step out of your comfort zone.

    8. Don’t Forget That Time Is Precious

    When we’re lost in a sea of loneliness and depression, it’s all too easy to reflect on regrets of past life events. This does nothing but feed negativity and perpetuate the situation.

    Instead of falling prey to this common pitfall, put one foot in front of the other and acknowledge every positive step you take. By doing this, you can celebrate the struggles you overcome at the end of the day.

    9. Remember, Things Happen for a Reason

    Every circumstance we encounter in our life is designed to teach us and that lesson is in turn passed on to others.

    Sometimes we’re fortunate enough to figure out the lesson to be learned, while other times, we simply need to have faith that if the lesson wasn’t meant directly for us to learn from, how we handled it was observed by someone who needed to learn.

    Your solitude and feeling of lost, in this instance, although painful possibly, may be teaching someone else.

    10. Journal During This Time

    Record your thoughts when you’re at the height of loneliness and feeling lost. You’ll be amazed when you reflect back at how you viewed things at the time and how far you’ve come later.

    This time (if recorded) can give you a keen insight into who you are and what makes you feel the way you feel.

    11. Remember You Aren’t the First to Feel This Way

    It’s quite common to feel as if we’re alone and no one else has ever felt this way before. We think this because at the time of our distress, we’re silently observing others around us who are seemingly fine in every way.

    The truth is, we can’t possibly know the struggles of those around us unless they elect to share them. We ALL have known this pain!

    Try confiding in someone you trust and ask them how they deal with these feelings when they experienced it. You may be surprised at what you learn.

    12. Ask for Help If the Problem Persists

    The feeling of being lost and lonely is common to everyone, but typically it will last for a relatively short period of time.

    Most people will confess to, at one time or another, being in a “funk.” But if the problem persists longer than you feel it should, don’t ignore it.

    When your ability to reason and consider things rationally becomes impaired, do not poo poo the problem away and think it isn’t worthy of attention. Seek medical help.

    Afraid to ask for help? Here’s how to change your outlook to aim high!

    Final Thoughts

    Loneliness and a sense of feeling lost can in many ways be extremely painful and difficult to deal with at best. However, these feelings can also serve as a catalyst for change in our lives if we acknowledge them and act.

    Above anything, cherish your mental well being and don’t underestimate its worth. Seek professional guidance if you’re unable to distinguish between a sense of freedom for yourself and a sense of despair.
