These fifteen actions suggest you have very bad social media habits
I recently saw this on Punch website and thought I should share because a lot of us are guilty of some of the points raised here… read below and share with others if you agree with the author.
Here are some things that suggest you have bad social media manners:
- Posting your wristwatch collections on Facebook or instagram and lying about their worth.
- When you feel it is really that important to facebook or instagram your amala or jollof rice for the world to take you more seriously.
- When you don’t know that posting how your wife annoyed you on Facebook is like putting it on the billboard at Allen Avenue roundabout.
- When you are so obsessed over your looks on Instagram that you forget how you look in reality.
- Spreading your dirty laundry all over social media and getting carried away with the meaningless approval of strangers online.
- When you keep posting things that can be misinterpreted and get mad when you are called a bitch or prostitute.
- When you talk more about your relationships on Facebook than you do face-to-face with the person you are actually in a relationship with.
- Carrying your phone with you everywhere you go. The bathroom, the toilet, even in bed you keep moving it from one hand to the other like the staff of the Oba of Benin.
- When you are ruining intimacy with your spouse because your phones keep beeping with alerts, notifications and reminders, and you replace that deeply-felt, long conversation you should be having with your spouse with the non-urgent, shallow tasks of retweeting fun tweets, updating your Facebook status every minute.
- You keep liking pictures of your exes on instagram or tagging them to all your pictures on Facebook.
- When you replace the simple conversations you should have with your spouse with endless scrolling through social media in search of funny images and videos.
- When you become that selfish, not sympathetic individual who is only worried about how many likes your instagram pictures received, or how many retweets you get.
- When you allow the small, precious moments of your relationship slip away because you are too focused on reading all your messages and you always get irritated or unreasonably anxious when asked to put the phone away even for five minutes.
- When all your posts on instagram carry hashtags of #No-filters, #Naturally-me, #Haters-go-to-hell, #Kill-yourself, #Simply-me, #Na-God, #Fashionista-of-life.
- When someone posted the picture of the container that fell from the bridge at Ojuelegba on Facebook and you clicked “like,” do you like the fact that the container fell and killed people or you like the crushed cars in the picture?
