I love the Internet. I love social media. I'm on different accounts daily. I like seeing what people are up to. But sometimes I see things that irritate me. This mostly happens when I get online BEFORE I've had my Diet Coke. Most of the time I'm quite pleased with what I see. But other times?
--Sending those auto messages on Twitter when you follow them. Stop it. I don't like them. Most people don't like them. If I also want to follow you on Facebook, I know what to do. My Twitter mailbox is FILLED with these things that I haven't even bothered to read.
--Acting like your life is perfect. If I see constant love posts between a husband and wife, the cynic in me immediately thinks, "Something is wrong. They're covering something up."
--Sending those "do you want to join my team?" messages on Instagram or other social media accounts after I follow you or like one of your pictures. No. No I do NOT want to join your team. If I did, I know what to do.
--Please stop adding me to online parties. If I want a candle/purse/jewelry/nail crap/leggings, I know what to do.
--Stop inviting me to like your page. I know how to click a like button. For the 23489th time if I want to like your page, I know what to do.
--The blog posts on why you stop reading a blog? Well, I do some of those things, and I don't plan on stopping.
--I detest pop ups when I go to a blog. If I want to join your newsletter, I'll click the newsletter button. Having it pop up when I'm trying to read your post pisses me off and usually I click off the page before I finish the post because I'm perturbed.
--Parents that sell their kids fundraising crap online and then act offended when you decline to get something. First of all, your child is supposed to sell the overpriced crap. Not you. Second of all, I do not want to spend $15 on cookie dough when I can go to the store and get it for $2. I donate directly to the school so I don't have to deal with the fundraising nonsense. Don't give me a sob story on how your kid needs to sell 20 items to get a cheap toy. The cheap toy is going to end up broken and lost within a week. I assure you.
--Urging me to try It Wraps if I like one of your photos about you talking about It Wraps. Look, I'm being polite. If I want to try one, I KNOW WHAT TO DO.
Do you have anything to add to this list?
