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.

    Success In Reaching Goals Is Determined By Mindset

    Success In Reaching Goals Is Determined By Mindset

    What do you think it takes to achieve your goals? Hard work? Lots of actions? While these are paramount to becoming successful in reaching our goals, neither of these are possible without a positive mindset.

    As humans, we naturally tend to lean towards a negative outlook when it comes to our hopes and dreams. We are prone to believing that we have limitations either from within ourselves or from external forces keeping us from truly getting to where we want to be in life. Our tendency to think that we’ll “believe it when we see it” suggests that our mindsets are focused on our goals not really being attainable until they’ve been achieved. The problem with this is that this common mindset fuels our limiting beliefs and shows a lack of faith in ourselves.

    The Success Mindset

    Success in achieving our goals comes down to a ‘success mindset’. Successful mindsets are those focused on victory, based on positive mental attitudes, empowering inclinations and good habits. Acquiring a success mindset is the sure-fire way to dramatically increase your chance to achieve your goals.

    The idea that achieving our goals comes down to our habits and actions is actually a typical type of mindset that misses a crucial point; that our mindset is, in fact, the determiner of our energy and what actions we take. A negative mindset will tend to create negative actions and similarly if we have a mindset that will only set into action once we see ‘proof’ that our goals are achievable, then the road will be much longer and arduous. This is why, instead of thinking “I’ll believe it when I see it”, a success mindset will think “I’ll see it when I believe it.”

    The Placebo Effect and What It Shows Us About The Power of Mindset

    The placebo effect is a perfect example of how mindset really can be powerful. In scientific trials, a group of participants were told they received medication that will heal an ailment but were actually given a sugar pill that does nothing (the placebo). Yet after the trial the participants believed it’s had a positive effect – sometimes even cured their ailment even though nothing has changed. This is the power of mindset.

    How do we apply this to our goals? Well, when we set goals and dreams how often do we really believe they’ll come to fruition? Have absolute faith that they can be achieved? Have a complete unwavering expectation? Most of us don’t because we hold on to negative mindsets and limiting beliefs about ourselves that stop us from fully believing we are capable or that it’s at all possible. We tend to listen to the opinions of others despite them misaligning with our own or bow to societal pressures that make us believe we should think and act a certain way. There are many reasons why we possess these types of mindsets but a success mindset can be achieved.

    How To Create a Success Mindset

    People with success mindsets have a particular way of perceiving things. They have positive outlooks and are able to put faith fully in their ability to succeed. With that in mind, here are a few ways that can turn a negative mindset into a successful one.

    1. A Success Mindset Comes From a Growth Mindset

    How does a mindset even manifest itself? It comes from the way you talk to yourself in the privacy of your own head. Realising this will go a long way towards noticing how you speak to yourself and others around you. If it’s mainly negative language you use when you talk about your goals and aspirations then this is an example of a fixed mindset.

    A negative mindset brings with it a huge number of limiting beliefs. It creates a fixed mindset – one that can’t see beyond it’s own limitations. A growth mindset sees these limitations and looks beyond them – it finds ways to overcome obstacles and believes that this will result in success. When you think of your goal, a fixed mindset may think “what if I fail?” A growth mindset would look at the same goal and think “failures happen but that doesn’t mean I won’t be successful.”

    There’s a lot of power in changing your perspective.

    2. Look For The Successes

    It’s really important to get your mind focused on positive aspects of your goal. Finding inspiration through others can be really uplifting and keep you on track with developing your success mindset; reinforcing your belief that your dreams can be achieved. Find people that you can talk with about how they achieved their goals and seek out and surround yourself with positive people. This is crucial if you’re learning to develop a positive mindset.

    3. Eliminate Negativity

    You can come up against a lot of negativity sometimes either through other people or within yourself. Understanding that other people’s negative opinions are created through their own fears and limiting beliefs will go a long way in sustaining your success mindset. But for a lot of us, negative chatter can come from within and these usually manifest as negative words such as can’t, won’t, shouldn’t. Sometimes, when we think of how we’re going to achieve our goals, statements in our minds come out as negative absolutes: ‘It never works out for me’ or ‘I always fail.’

    When you notice these coming up you need to turn them around with ‘It always works out for me!’ and ‘I never fail!’ The trick is to believe it no matter what’s happened in the past. Remember that every new day is a clean slate and for you to adjust your mindset.

    4. Create a Vision

    Envisioning your end goal and seeing it in your mind is an important trait of a success mindset. Allowing ourselves to imagine our success creates a powerful excitement that shouldn’t be underestimated. When our brain becomes excited at the thought of achieving our goals, we become more committed, work harder towards achieving it and more likely to do whatever it takes to make it happen.

    If this involves creating a vision board that you can look at to remind yourself every day then go for it. Small techniques like this go a long way in sustaining your success mindset and shouldn’t be dismissed.

    An Inspirational Story…

    For centuries experts said that running a mile in under 4 minutes was humanly impossible. On the 6th May 1954, Rodger Bannister did just that. As part of his training, Bannister relentlessly visualised the achievement, believing he could accomplish what everyone said wasn’t possible…and he did it.

    What’s more amazing is that, as soon as Bannister achieved the 4-minute mile, more and more people also achieved it. How was this possible after so many years of no one achieving it? Because in people’s minds it was suddenly possible – once people knew that it was achievable it created a mindset of success and now, after over fifty years since Bannister did the ‘impossible’, his record has been lowered by 17 seconds – the power of the success mindset!
