Todays post is a simple one. This is a list of my top social media pet peeves. I would love if you commented below with some of your own. What annoys you the most?
Just Because I Like Your Instagram Pictures Doesn’t Mean I Want To Get With You.
This is just one example of my Instagram inbox and trust me when I say: this is mild. I keep my profile open to help promote my blog and even wrote a polite disclaimer in my bio indicating I do not reply to personal messages. I actually think since I put up this disclaimer it has gotten worse. I have pictures of my husband all over my feed. Does this actually work for people?
Copy And Paste… Or Else
I don’t want to copy and paste to show my love for Jesus, to prove I’m reading your posts, or to cure cancer. The truth is what I just might be copying and pasting is a virus to my computer. So thanks a lot.
The Need For Attention Or To Create Drama.
These posts can be fun – in a train wreck kind of way. I’ll be the first to admit I have shared some angry messages and some just plain pathetic – woe as me ones too. (See Social Media Regrets) I would bet that most people have had a bad day they just had to share. The ones that bother me are the never ending rants of rage or self-pity. If I am describing you right now maybe it’s not social media that you need, but instead a therapist.
Do You Know What You Are Sharing?
Oh how I love pictures and videos of cute adorable kittens. Image my surprise when I open the link and instead of this cuteness I see Porn. If you want to share something online please make sure you know exactly what it is that you’re sending out.
Hope you enjoyed my list of Social Media Pet Peeves. Hoping everyone has a great week and please feel free to add to this list below. You know there’s something you want to say… So here’s your chance. XOXOX. Kathy Brown.
