People’s personalities can be studied by just analyzing their personal Facebook profile. We have gone even farther for you. We have found 10 types of people that it’s best to avoid on Facebook for your mental well-being.
Here we have made a list of potential users that distinguish themselves on Facebook. They have specific features that make them unique on the most famous of social networks.
Let’s have a look!
10 types of friendships to avoid on Facebook
- If you don’t have a plan for the weekend don’t worry, the PR will suggest you a lot of interesting events to join. The only price to pay? Daily notifications! Usually, we don’t know them and we don’t know how we added them to our contacts. The only thing we know is that all these notifications are annoying and that we can find something more interesting to do for the weekend.
- He or she is one of our real life friends. The main problem is their obsession towards tagging. If they walk 5 meters to get a coffee into a bar near their house, they feel the need to communicate it to the world through geolocation. Sometimes the tagger is able to tag more than 40 friends in a picture and the best thing is not one of these people is in the photo. Has this ever happened to you?
The social depressed.
- Thanks to Facebook, we have developed a non-communicative communication and from this incapacity of people to speak directly to each other a new figure has been born: the social depressed. The status of the social depressed is always sad and they are always looking for approval from others. Friendship, love, relationship with parents… Everything is worth doing a depressive post about. Better not to include him in your friends list!
The publisher of fake news.
- You can always find articles on the web concerning strange news and particular facts. The publisher of fake news acts in bona fide believing in everything he’s reading on the web: ghosts, political rumors, fantasy animals, the end of the world. Just found a shocking headline and an attractive picture and he is going to share it on Facebook. If you have friends that are publishing pictures of unicorns on their newsfeed, you probably have this character in your list.
- The summer is probably the favorite season for Facebook’s egocentric. Everybody has a friend like this and his or her main weapon is the selfie. In all his posts the main word is “ME” and in the pictures he will be the main protagonist. The setting is not important. What is relevant is to be the only star in the picture. The second step of the procedure is tagging himself immediately and then liking his own picture.
Hashtags and emoticons addicted.
- Thanks to emoticon and hashtags, people can produce the most irritating posts from a visual point of view. Emoticons don’t replace real words, so please don’t pretend to communicate with these. It would be easier for an archeologist to translate hieroglyphics.
- What about hashtags? Writing 5 lines of nonsense hashtags won’t take you anywhere and it will just confuse the readers. Here you can find more information about the use and history of the hashtag
- Usually, their status are direct to someone that deserve to be mistreated. Their typical status: “Do you think that you are better than me? You are a loser!” Their Facebook account it’s just a showcase where they can pour out all their hate and envy. They always complain about something but they never specify the name of the victim or the problem; they use the suspense to attract more comments and likes.
- Fortunately, these days this character is facing from view, but just a few years ago, it was one of the most dangerous people you could find on Facebook. The fans of Farmville devote their time to growing virtual vegetable and taking care of their farm. They distinguish themselves because to get extra points in this online game, they just have to send invitations to their Facebook friends to join the game.
- We just want to ask you one thing: how many notifications do you receive daily? If among your friends there is a Farmville player you’ll know for sure ( Note: All this applies to Candy Crash and similar games as well)
The impulsive sharer.
- He has the monopoly of your newsfeed. The first thing you will see once you have logged in your Facebook page is his posts. He is spending hours sharing, commenting and liking. We may want to see other friends’ posts too, but this is hard because of this lumbering presence. You can hide all his posts (option up right of the post) without deleting him from your friends. We think this is a fair compromise!
- Suggestion: Never accept a friendship request from your mother. She already has the power to control you in real life don’t let her do the same on Facebook. The potential consequences? She is able to destroy your reputation with just a simple comment that will show all her influence on you.
And now let’s play a game: If you can recognize one of your friends in any of these 10 profiles, share it on Facebook and tag your friend. Then just wait for the reaction!
