Heavily filtered/photoshopped pics of themselves.  We see you, we know you don’t actually look like that.

I just wish there was a filter so that all I could see are actual posts – all reposts need to be blasted from my wall.  some entertain me but it’s mostly garbage.  I want to know what’s actually happening in peoples’ lives and I mostly can’t find that anymore.

Also I have a relative who frequently posts articles about his hometown and how violent it is, then says what a fantastic place it is.  He’s kinda become the definition of the far left (as opposed to the sane left) and it weirds me out how blind he is to some major issues – and don’t you dare point them out.  Likewise the constant reposts from the other side of my family about ‘merica and things they don’t actually care about in reality but play facebook outrage with (how dare you say happy holidays).  And, frankly, anyone else who overdoses on one-sided politics.

Humble bragging…but this seems to be a LinkedIn thing .massive paragraphs about getting a new job or promotion and how grateful they are to x, y and the Academy for this (cue orchestra music). Or the humble bragging of someone who gave a homeless person $5 and wants everyone to know they did.

Politics!! I just find it uninteresting and no one ever succeeds in changing anyone’s minds.

People who constantly post about their kids. We get it, this is your life now. But there are plenty of other people who don’t post constantly about *their* life. I don’t post hourly updates about what I’m doing all day, why do new parents get a pass?? Haha

I don’t mind pics of kids if the parent isn’t constantly posting about them, but the pics I’m grossed out by are pics of kids that have food smeared all over their mouth! Seriously, take a few seconds and wipe your kids mouths after you post a pic! People don’t want to see food slopped around anyone’s face. Can you imagine if an adult posted a pic of themselves like that?? Gross!

People who just have a baby and post statuses/memes to the effect of “once you have kids, your friends disappear” or “no one makes an effort to come see my kid”. The problem I have with these is that the people that I know personally who have posted things like this never invited anyone to come see their baby!! I would understand them feeling that way if they invited their friends to come meet their baby and the friends never did, but it seems like once someone has a kid nowadays, they expect people to invite themselves over or something. If/when I have kids, I’ll be inviting people and I’m not going to expect my friends to reach out and be like “I’m coming to visit the little one!” No. You need an invite lol.

Constant selfies/changing profile picture daily.

MLM schemes/anyone trying to sell anything. It’s different if someone has their own business that’s not MLM related and just wants to put it out there. Just don’t be too pushy. There’s a girl on mine now who became a fitness coach. She advertises literally all.the.time. I’m about to unfollow her because it’s annoying. My favorite was when she posted a super long status about bettering yourself and how it doesn’t cost anything to improve yourself, blah, blah, blah. Then, in the comments, people kept asking her for advice, and she was referring all of them to her website, saying “For a fee of $49.99, I can be your personal fitness coach and we can achieve your dreams! You can’t put a price on health!” Really? What happened to “it doesn’t cost anything”? Haha sometimes people are super cringey.

People who regularly make posts hollering into the void (especially when they are clearly yelling AT a specific someone and should have just called THAT person and had an uncomfortable conversation to address matters).

People who stay mad or are constatly complaining (though I do have a few where I know it relates to lonliness so it makes me feel compassion for them even though it annoys me).

People who are regularly fighting or arguing or posting about fighting or arguing elsewhere- after a while, is seems like it should have gotten old and tired and been put to rest.

All of it. Which is why I have zero forms of social media aside from Pinterest and The Bee (if that counts.) I don’t understand it, and I don’t care what you had for dinner or where your family went on vacation or how amazing your marriage is. Then turn around and read your rants about how you’re getting divorced. 

Fun fact: The person who posts the most about how incredible their life is and how fantastic their spouse is, is the most miserable.

michellelynn9175 :  Actually, I sometimes post about my husband & how incredible he is, because it makes him feel good to see me put it out there and, I like to be a little passive aggressive towards his cheating ex, who spent the better part of 20 years telling him what a terrible husband he was. My husband is awesome & I  don’t mind everyone knowing it.

I’m not on Facebook thank God!! However on Instagram, I get SO sick of my sister in law posting every second of my nephews lives. It’s not that interesting.  I’ve now muted her.

Last week,  she posted a birth photo when it’s clear she’s naked. Why do people have to share everything 🤦‍♀️

I’ve taken a real step back from social media in the last month. I don’t think it’s healthy.

People who post PARAGRAPHS on anniversaries/birthdays about how much they love/adore their significant other, how they could not imagine their life without them, etc. etc.  Write it in a card and throw it in their gift bag.  Nobody. Cares

Also no offense as I know this is common but I hate when people post photos of ultrasounds on any form of social media.
