The Most Annoying People On Social Media

Irritating social media updates

Social media is great for many reasons. It can help businesses thrive in economic hardship, and keep families connected from other sides of the globe. Despite the positives, there are some really annoying people on social media, and here are just a few.

Quote hoarder

This person will not accept that anything is worth talking about unless it is up in quotations following by a caption that reads ‘Mother Teresa’ or ‘Ghandi.’ Now whilst these figures were hugely inspirational for many, they are popping up all too often on many Facebook timelines, and people need to remember that thinking for yourself will do you no harm whatsoever. Facebook has become an amalgamation of quotes gone by, and they are usually accompanied by a picture of the figure in question looking as if they are deep in thought.

Annoyance rating: 8/10

The exaggerator

This sounds rather like the title of a terrible Adam Sandler movie, but these folks who commit this crime are far more annoying than Hollywood’s least funny leading man. If you are prone to bending the truth on occasions, then Facebook might not be the best place to do it. 4.9% of people say that they find people who exaggerate too much the most annoying of all. Next time that spider the size of a hippo enters your bedroom, reconsider the comparison before hitting the web.

The Arguer

Be it religion, politics, the way to raise a child, or whether Coronation Street is better than Eastenders, this person will find a way of enforcing their input in the most forceful way possible. Usually accompanied by a profile picture that shows that veins protruding out of the side of their temple, this person will search their timeline looking for something they can belittle or contradict. They can be located by looking for posts that contain over 20 comments, but I’d stay well clear.

Annoyance rating: 8/10

The Candy Crush pest

Everybody has heard of Candy Crush, and personally if I wanted to play it, I would have by now. With this said, why do I currently have 4 invitations on Facebook to join the Candy Crush Saga community? 10% of people are offended by the regular requests that they get from friends to play games on Facebook, but this won’t stop the committed folks who commit to such games as Candy Crush, FarmVille and Mafia Wars. There is no easy way to avoid these people, as they are usually quite aggressive in their tactics. They will not stop until you are herding virtual cattle, and moving digital sweets around on your computer screen.

Annoyance rating: 9/10

The chef

It is the fuel that keeps us going throughout the day, and I for one love it: food. What I don’t love is pictures of people’s undercooked roast dinners on a Sunday afternoon. If you are the type of person that is regularly posting pictures of your beans on toast or spaghetti bolognaise then 11.8% of people think you’ve gone too far.

The traveller

The world is beautiful, if you take it in. The traveller will keep you updated with all the little details of their trip to the other side of the world in an attempt to make you feel jealous. Often the traveller can be identified usually in a photo that delivers fantastic scenery, and an ambiguous pair of upper thighs to let you know that they are there. 15.8% of people have absolutely no interest in what flavoured cocktail you’re sipping whilst they are back home at work.

Annoyance rating: 9/10

The baby bore

It starts with an announcement, it then moves onto the scan picture, and in no time you are knee deep in pictures of a new-born child. After the initial pictures, the baby bore will then inform you of every movement their child makes, and you too will feel like the parent, as you assess their childhood development closely. 13.1% of people seem to think that seeing multiple pictures of a little baby each day is far too much, and this means we have a winner folks.

Annoyance rating: 10/10 

These are the most annoying people on social media, and if you’re not careful, you could be a victim.
