Perhaps it describes you! Either way, these types of people are annoying. Below, I talk about the problem and then give the solution. Remember, you have to be popular online too.
Ducks Have Low Self Esteem
Most of the people making the duck face or other goofy facial contortions a lot don’t really like themselves. Am I sure? No, but it sure looks that way. I have friends on my Facebook feed who are confident, successful, and beautiful. They never do the duck face. Ever. The duck face basically tells people “I don’t like my smile or my face.”
There’s nothing wrong with not liking your smile or face. But, replacing it with some odd facial contortion isn’t any better. Be yourself and be natural. If you have to morph into a human duck, then maybe it’s time to start loving yourself a little more!
Those Who Advertise It Don’t Believe It
Do you have a friend who constantly references her boyfriend on her Facebook page? You know, how in love they are? Well, odds are she doesn’t love him that much. Constantly talking about a guy or girl on a page, especially all that lovey dovey language means the relationship probably isn’t all that great.
Healthy, stable relationships just happen. They don’t need announced to the world every five minutes. Troubled ones, on the other hand, usually require lots of convincing by at least one partner.
If you’re in a relationship, by all means, let people know. But, don’t bombard their feeds with your proclamations of love. They’ll just think you’re pathetic. It’s the online equivalent of kissing all the time in the hallway. No one wants to see it.
Passive Aggressive Posts Show Weakness
I had Facebook friends who de-friended each other and then posted passive aggressive comments about the other person. Granted, the person they hated couldn’t even see the comments because of the unfriending! The only people who viewed it were the current friends who were left guessing the true point.
People who resort to these type of posts on Facebook aren’t cool or tough; they’re just weak. Avoid these types of posts (e.g. “some girls need to grow up). If you have a problem with someone, send them a message and deal with it. Don’t solicit pity or guessing from your online friends.
The More You Show, the Less You Know
People who are constantly showing their body on Facebook usually have nothing going for them except that. I know that if I see a guy posing shirtless or a girl showing off her low cut top all the time, they likely have little in the way of talents and success. Granted, keeping a good body is an accomplishment. However, no one wants to see fifty thousand shirtless pics or a whole album of just a girl in a tight shirt (except maybe the creepers on your friends list).
If you only have these types of pictures on your social media, then delete all but a few and get more of a life!
I know this post is a little harsh, but these behaviors can be annoying to your friends. Be popular and successful online, not just in real life.
