From the patience-testers to the plain weird.
We spend most of our time on social media and we cannot help but notice certain irritating behaviours that some of our friends display every day.
After hours of “research”, we managed to identify the seven types of annoying Instagrammers you might have come across, from the slightly bothersome to the very disturbing.
First in the list is the bane of our Instagram existence: receiving a friend request from a private account and you do not know who the person is.
This is mainly because their profile picture is anything but their face. It can range to body parts, group pictures, cartoons or other inanimate objects.
Plus, their profile names do not clearly suggest who they are either.
When you see an attractive person in a group picture your friend just posted, we instantly get into our “stalker” mode. However, we are often let down when all the profiles were tagged nicely on the side of the picture, making it impossible to tap on the person’s name and link to their account.
This friend is the type who frequents your comments section, but they never “like” your pictures after commenting on them. These friends can cause great pain to those who seek validation from their number of likes.
They may not be posting pictures by the hour, but you will see the same thing in every picture. Their most common posts are usually selfies, but it can sometimes be things that they see almost every day such as pictures of their bedroom, food or their cat.
Do you have friends who have their profile grid filled with a bunch of images to create the “bigger” picture? Yes, they are creative and amazing!
Yet, sometimes it gets really annoying when the small and insignificant parts of the picture flood our timeline.
Perhaps they can make each small picture meaningful and appealing at the same time.
All of us are guilty of this in some ways when it comes to posting group pictures. You will unconsciously pick pictures that you look good in, but totally neglect or put little consideration of how your friends look.
Sometimes, it is heartbreaking to see your secondary school juniors doing better than you. Maybe it is because they have become so good-looking and famous, and are enjoying a better lifestyle than you.
While you want to be happy for them, it does make you start thinking about what are you doing with your life now.
Even if you are guilty of being one of the above, that does not necessarily mean you will lose all your friends. Perhaps being different is sometimes a good thing too!
