Top 5 Most Annoying Types of Facebook Posts

Updated on December 5, 2013

Let's face it, we all are a bit guilty of posting something on Facebook that others could really care less for. We know this just by the criticism we give others when we come across something that we feel could of perhaps been left unsaid. Well, where is that line drawn? Perhaps these top 5 most annoying types of posts can shed some light.


5. Game Requests

We know that Candy Crush is all the rave right now on Facebook. But it should also be known that not everybody plays Candy Crush, let alone any games for that matter. Some friends can become quickly annoyed when their phone notification is set off because you've just shared your success to the next level with all of your friends. Or perhaps because you need a life to get to the next level. Constant bombardment of game requests on one's feed can and will quickly become annoying, leading to blocked feed access and possibly even 'unfriending'.


4. Posts With Religious/Inspirational Quotes

a) There is nothing wrong with one's religious belief. There isn't even anything wrong with sharing those beliefs..."under the right circumstances". But just like politics, religion is a thing that mustn't be shoved down someone's throat or else you'll find that person fighting back.

A constant flood of religious quotes can make a person seem like a fanatic. It can also be taken as an insult in some cases, especially to those friends whom are known not to share the same beliefs. Bigger than that, it can make you look like a hypocrite among those whom know you better than them eloquent verses you so meticulously display on the boards.

We all like to throw out reminders to others or dish out advice, but as the saying goes; "Practice what you preach!"

b) Everyone can use a little inspiration now and again. But as the old saying goes, there is a such thing as; "Too much of a good thing!"

Again, people who may know you better will only discredit you the more you dish out 'meaningless' and arbitrary quotes. It can also become quite annoying and repetitive to the point where a person will cut you off of their news feed.


3. ###The Hashtag

#I #Ate #Pancakes #For #Breakfast #Today

Unlike with Twitter, the hashtag is absolutely, 100% meaningless within Facebook posts. If you want to annoy your friends, then what better what than to stuff your post with senseless hashtagged jargon. Not only would you look like a fool to some, you may even get rewarded with a snicker or two, from a friend in the comfort of their own home.

2. 5, 10, 15 Years Ago Today...blah blah blah

Many Facebook posts start out with something like;

"10 years ago today...."

While most of the time this infamous first line leads to some major triumph, milestone, etc. in one's life, it has also become a trend, or the trend, for starting out such speeches. In turn it has watered down the true meaning of the message that follows and simply categorizes the post as yet another blah, blah, blah post that one can care less to read through. Nobody enjoys constant rhetoric. Instead, it is originality that stands out and makes people deliver genuine likes, versus pity ones.

1. Bragging

Yup, bragging!!! You've seen those post before.

"Can't believe I just spent $1000 on only 2 items. #pursecheck #shoescheck"

"Wonder what I should buy tomorrow...any suggestions?"

"It feels good to have money and no worries...Go Me!!!!"

There is always that one person that makes it a priority to express how well off they are. As it is not a problem to express one's accolades, there is still moderation in everything. The bragger, will go far beyond the pat on the back to the point of becoming very shallow, superficial and yes, annoying. While you may see many likes to their posts, one has to think how genuine and with what intent are those likes. One should also take note that the person that is overly boastful is often most miserable at heart, spirit, etc. where tangible materials are used as a disguise against real inner pain.
