It’s no surprise that people post things on social media that get exhausting to look at because they fall within the list of most annoying things people do on Instagram – a compilation of the most annoying things that people post.
At the top of my list for most annoying types of posts are “selfies”. For those of you who don’t know what selfies are, they are pictures that people take of themselves that are shared via social media. Believe it or not, there are a ton of different types of selfies – the “gym selfie”, the “bathroom selfie”, and the ever-popular “duck-face selfie” to name a few.
Check this out; as if “selfies” weren’t annoying enough, the word “selfie” was named the word of the year by Oxford English Dictionary in 2013 – how annoying. And even more annoying is the fact that a song released in January called “#Selfie”, made its way to the number 1 spot on Billboards Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart only 5 weeks after it was released – the fastest flight since Lady Gaga’s “Applause”. Who would have guessed that selfies would have such a big impact on our culture?
Don’t get me wrong however, I’m not the Grinch of selfies, in fact, I will “like” your selfie if you post one (if it’s not completely ridiculous), but try to keep them to 1 or less per week – thanks.
