Seven types of irritating Instagrammers

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.

1. The mystery man/woman

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.

ACCOUNTS LIKE THIS MAKE US WONDER IF IT IS A SPAM ACCOUNT OR A FRIEND NEW TO INSTAGRAM.

 

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.

2. The kiamsiap (stingy) friend

GOOD LUCK FOR THE BOYS TRYING TO GET TO THE PRETTY GIRLS’ ACCOUNTS.

 

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.

3. The lurker

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.

4. The consistent one

SAME FACE BUT DIFFERENT PLACE.

 

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.

5. The grid perfectionist

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! 

WHEN ONE NORMAL INSTAGRAM POST IS NOT ENOUGH.

 

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.

6. The "focus on me" friend

“WHO CARES IF THE REST ARE NOT READY, AS LONG AS I LOOK GOOD.”

 

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.

7. The secondary school junior

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!
