This is a spin off from the e-ring post. I know with the growth of instigram and just smartphones in general I’ve seen a huge increase in photos on Facebook that just make me thing “Really?” So lets here it what pics have you been seeing that you just don’t get or drive you nuts?
For me its the food. I don’t need to see what your eating unless you are inviting me to join and are trying to entice me with pictures. I don’t care how artistic it looks. Just today I had pictures of spilled nerds on a table instigramed and posted…
How about you!?

Pics of group photos of feet (usually in a circle.) Don’t understand. I also hear you on the food!

@Future Mrs. W: Food and the MySpace style camera-over-the-head-and-down-the-cleavage shots. I did not know this was still a thing. Maybe I need to clean out my friends list…

Haha stuck in traffic pics. “Look at all this traffic!”
Yep, there are cars there. I would have believed you if you just told me, even without the picture …

Before everyone starts posting, I just want to remind everyone to please not post personal photos that don’t belong to you!
@Future Mrs. W: Speaking of Instagram, I have a friend who’s really into social media, and he’s just gotten an instagram account. I guess he’s trying to build up his followers or his presence there, so my feed is FULL of photos of himself that he’s posted. It’s a little weird and creepy. My own feed is totally locked down and I only see the few people I’m following, so it’s not like I have 400 people I’m following or anything and it gets diluted, LOL!
I’m a bit of a foodie, so I love food pictures. A good photo is a good photo to me, whether it’s of your dog, a cathedral, or a cheeseburger. Bad photos are another story 😉

@CaliHoya: Seriously! I am astonished. Especially when I was Facebooking a co-worker and saw her profile pic was that!

I hate it when people post photos with no captions, just begging for people to ask what happened. Perfect example-don’t post a photo of the sign for the Emergency Room and then not say anything….and then be vague when 50 ppl ask “Oh no! What happened?!”. If you didn’t want to talk about it DON’T POST IT.

@bakerella: I didn’t realize you could have followers on Instagram. Maybe that explains its explosion in my newsfeed.

@sara_tiara: YES! Or status updates that are similar to this: “I feel like I could cry…” nothing else. Totally begging for attention, but no hints as to what happened.
The ones that crack me up are the people who post pictures of themselves doing the duck face everywhere. Duck face at their work desk, duck face at the grocery store, duck face at the mall, duck face at the pool…I don’t need to see your duck face with different backgrounds.

@sara_tiara: Yes! Though I hate those when they are just little captions and no pictures too. The passive aggressive cry for attention drives me crazy.

Just… too much of anything, period.
My sister is an instagram fanatic. Every weekend she goes to her dad’s and hangs out with this girl who is like 15 (my sister is 19) and they go in the bathroom and take pictures of each other posing in the bathroom mirror, butt to butt. Every weekend my newsfeed is blown up with butt to butt pictures of sis and her little friend.
I don’t mind a few pictures of someone’s kid or dog or whatever. But, constantly? GTFO!

I hate when people post pictures of graphic injuries, especially bloody ones.
Whats worse is when a friend comments on someone’s picture (who isn’t my friend) and it shows up in the feed.

@Future Mrs. W: Ya, you can follow people and they can follow you. I have mine set though so that my photos are private and people have to ask to follow me.
