#Selfies: One of many Annoying things that People do on Instagram

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 2013how 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.

    Have you ever notice people say lets take a selfie and there is a group of you. I see that as not really a selfie but a groupie

    The problem with selfie is, it is so ‘selfish’ in its nature. It’s all about me me me!

    Well, taking a selfie has become an accepted culture, a trend that looks set to stay for quite some time. I sure have no problem with anyone posting as much selfies as they like. Hey, it’s their portal…

    I agree, they’re getting more annoying these days. I’ve stopped posting ‘selfies’ and when I do (on a rare occasion) it’s usually taking the piss/poking fun at other seflies. I now no longer add people who want to follow me when I see that their who account is only full of selfies. Too vain.
