There are likely infinite ways to be annoying on Facebook. Admittedly, it’s easy to fall into the trap.
The Places app can easily suck you into the nasty habit of checking in at all times, in all place. Despite my alleged knowledge on social media, and Facebook, in particular, I became temporarily addicted to announcing my presence at such exciting places at Einstein Bros. Bagels and Starbucks.
While that may have been amusing or interested to a handful of people, it’s really the kind of junk that will drive most people in other directions. So… I’ve stopped doing that. I use the Places app almost solely when attending industry events or travel for speaking. That’s it. That’s the list.
An incredibly more annoying practice is the clique-post (sometimes used with Places), almost always accompanied by photos.
You know the one… a group of professional peers are out in a small group, consuming apple martinis and Cheetos. They just can’t resist posting a few photos of themselves, smiling and giggling, and yukking it up.
The essence that Facebook check-in or post becomes:
“Look at us! We’re together, and you’re not part of our clique!!”
It is so high school. If you catch yourself doing it, Knock it off!
If you catch a friend doing it with others, tell them (privately) to Knock it off!
There, I feel better already…
