It is more than clear that everybody has that one mate who takes too many selfies. You just can’t leave the house without them wanting a quick picture. It’s an obsession!
But, turns out that taking way too many selfies is the most annoying of all social media sins.
Check out the video below:
A poll of 2,000 Brits by online casino Casumo.com found out that four in ten people get more than annoyed by attention-seeking status updates that sometimes are too cryptic for anyone to decipher. And half of the people think that trolling is the worst thing you can actually do online.
Casumo.com spokesman Greg Tatton-Brown said:
“New technology, including smartphones, have given us a lot of great gifts. They mean we’re never far from information, or being able to contact loved ones – as well as games and other entertainment.”
Posting too many pictures of your kids is also considered annoying as well, like people who post too much about their food. According to a research from OnePoll one in five admitted to posting images of food on social media in the past.
And four out of ten have unfollowed someone for being too annoying on social media while 27% have muted their friends. Then, a quarter of people believe that they have been unfriended by people while the other half got upset about it. Oh well!
Without further ado, here they are, the top 25 social media sins:
1. Too many selfies.
2. Trolling people.
3. Body shaming.
4. Cryptic, attention-seeking status updates followed up with ‘I don’t want to talk about it’ or ‘I’ll DM you’ when someone asks if they’re ok.
5. Liking your own profile picture.
6. Inviting people to play games like Candy Crush, Farmville etc.
7. Ranting about politics.
8. Revealing TV show spoilers.
9. Selling Mid-Level-Marketing products like juice or make-up.
10. When people “check in” to hospitals without specifying why.
11. Posting endless pictures of kids.
12. Overly loving couples constantly talking to each other on social media.
13. Posting pictures of food.
14. Gym selfies or updates about being at the gym.
15. Simply updating too often.
16. Boasting about kids.
17. Expressing inauthentic sympathy after a disaster or other incident.
18. Boasting about your performance at something.
19. Photoshopping/Facetuning selfies or pictures of yourself.
20. Re-posting old memories that nobody else would be interested in.
21. People who get overly upset about comments online.
22. Using hashtags on Facebook.
23. People who steal jokes and write them as if they came up with them on their own.
24. Using hashtags that nobody else would possibly use, that are incredibly specific to what that person is doing at that moment.

Casumo.com’s Greg Tatton-Brown continued:
“Although our survey was definitely light-hearted and aimed to find some of the funnier habits of social media users, we found many people do get genuinely peeved by things they find online.”
Everything should be as fun as possible and if social media is annoying you, then you can just take a short break and reflect on what makes it great. You can also come off it entirely and there is no law that says you have to be connected 24 hours a day. I’s actually much healthier to keep it at a safe distance anyways!
