5 KINDS OF PHOTOS YOU SHOULD STOP POSTING TO FACEBOOK
I was inspired to do another article on Facebook oversharing after reading this article on Thought
Catalog. Part one of the oversharing series I wrote can be found here.
Sometimes I see things on Facebook that makes me think that people don't know what are the appropriate things to share on social media.
Here we go! Are you making the same mistakes as well?!
1. Trysts Photos / Motel Photos / One Night Stand Shots
I am sure you get the gist. These are all grouped under the same category because they all mean the same thing anyway. I am 100% sure that I don't want to know of your numerable conquests in one night, nor am I interested to know that you are that easy a person.
This opinion stands no matter if we've known each other a decade or you are just someone I used to go to school with 5 years ago.
Your copulation partners and frequency is none of my business.
SO STOP POSTING PICTURES OF YOURSELF AND SIGNIFICANT OTHER OF THE MOMENT IN HOTEL ROOMS!
I know it is not nice to judge someone, but when you post pictures like that on social media, you are putting yourself out for judgement. Whether you like it or not, people will form an impression about the type of person you are based on that.
Why do you feel it's necessary to share pictures like this with your entire Facebook friends list?!
It doesn't make sense at all. If you're guilty of this, please repent now.
2. Vacation Shots with Your Significant Other
When I see pictures like this, I feel exactly like the author said on Thought Catalog.
"This trip must’ve cost so much money. How does anyone afford anything? Do you get paid to be in love these days? Is there a secret love donor that sends young and in love couples on tropical vacations, so people like me can feel bad about themselves?
God, they probably had so much sex on this trip. They were probably just screwing the entire time. All of these gorgeous backdrops are actually from Photobooth. They never even left the hotel room. "
Enough said. The author was spot on. That was pretty darn well articulated.
3. Spamming Baby Photos
Yes you are elated about your newborn, so am I. (If I knew you well enough.)
But kindly stop spamming 10,000 shots of your little angel and with captions such as "I'm wearing a cute bunny shirt that Mummy bought me!"
You are I know clearly well this caption is just part of your overactive imagination. If your newborn can say that, I would be VERY INTERESTED indeed. It gets pretty annoying after awhile because those hardcore career women out there are bound to unsubscribe or delete you sooner or later. Can't deal with babies flooding up my homepage.
Worse, you create a Facebook page / account for your little angel.
Oh imagine the horror.
4. Drunken Shots
Unglam unglam unglam! Need I say more??!
Especially for girls, getting drunk in itself is already an extremely ungraceful and unfeminine thing to do. Having your drunk pictures on social media is definitely a big no-no.
How many times must I emphasize that it does not reflect well on you?!
5. Narcissistic Boob Photos
Some people like this irritating girl over-flaunts her assets on social media, so much so that one you keyed in her name in Google search, 99% of the searche are of shots of her boobs.
Of course the guys love it, it's like legal porn.
But I am sorely disgusted by it.
All I think when I see these pictures are
"HAVE YOU NO SENSE OF SHAME ANYMORE?!"
But I guess not, else she would have stopped doing that already.
People now have no sense of shame anyway. Sadly.
