    I've always thought saying "shout out to _____" is like the most redundant statement a person can make. 😛

    All of this is spot on. The "I'm so utterly over…" is my least favorite. I hate all the complaining that goes on; I always hear my mom's voice saying, "if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all". But then again, isn't complaining exactly what I"m doing with this comment 🙂

    I don't love when people say happy birthday to their kids on Facebook. Is that bad to say out loud? I mean, your three year old probably doesn't have a profile and if he does I'm not sure that we have enough in common to be friends. I also don't like when people say that social media makes them unhappy. I think that social media is just a conduit for whatever insecurity or jealousy you are already harboring and that fixing the source is a better course of action than blaming the funnel. (p.s. I'm a new follower of your blog and I totally love it and I'm totally sorry that my first comment is complainy, I just couldn't resist. I promise to leave more happy shiny comments soon! :))

    Honestly vaguebooking annoys me the most. Don't post on Facebook that someone is pissing you off but refuse to give any real details! It's so immature!

    This cracks me up! I have a post planned over social media etiquette. I am always surprised what I find on there, and I don't hesitate to delete all of the above mentioned people, haha.

    I think its ridiculous when people say "Thank you my amazing husband/wife/whatever" when that person doesn't even have a Facebook themselves.

    I really dislike when people air their personal business on Facebook or Twitter. If you are in a fight or argument with your husband/wife/gf/bf deal with them, no reason to post online to get someone to agree with you. So uncalled for and childish.

    Dying over this! Hilarious. I can't stand when people tweet celebs to get attention, when people continuously post statuses on FB and tag their spouse even when the status has nothing to do with their spouse.

    SO SO TRUE! We have crazy weather in Charlotte right now and everyone seems to blow up social media with their thoughts on that.

    The only reason I have a personal FB anymore is cause I want to maintain my blog's FB page (which, having a personal one is necessary), but I can hardly stand to get on anymore.

    My least favorite saying is "Just sayin.'" or "Dear __(difficult child, inanimate object, fatty food, etc..)__,"

    I also dislike the passive aggressive posts directed toward some nameless person. And preachy/political posts too.

    I'm usually a positive person :)….FB turns me into a Negative Nancy.

    Oh my gosh, people seriously need to learn that they actually choose who they follow, it's this strange concept that no one has seemed to figure out yet. I constantly see negative things on social media that could easily be solved if people just stopped following people they strongly dislike/disagree with. Also, people need to figure out that not everything that everyone says on social media is a personal attack on them.

    Definitely despise all the crossfit posts. I'm a crossfiter but I don't know why people feel the need to post every single time they work out. First off, that's un-necessary and second off, not many people understand the crossfit lingo. I'm actually getting to write a post about crossfit and I'll for sure be covering this aspect.

    "I wasn't going to say anything about this, but…" really ties to "I'm not racist, but…" Just because you know you shouldn't say something, doesn't mean that gives you an excuse to come out and say it. Weirdos.

    These are fantastic, I couldn't agree more. My personal favorite is political tweets or posts. "I think I'll change my entire political views because this Facebook status swayed me otherwise," said no one ever.

    This is so true! I really hate getting on Facebook these days because everyone is either over sharing or complaining about popular subjects… but then again I'm on it so I can't really say much! 🙂 I'm thankful that it's a platform where I can still share my blog stuff. I'm much more into Twitter anyways!

    I like social media mainly for the same reasons as you–I have a lot of distant friends and family and I love being able to keep up with them! People always seem to complain about Facebook, but I have to wonder…if you hate your "facebook friends" so much….do you actually even like your friends in real life?

    Spot on girl. Spot on. Social media can be great, but oh my, all the ridiculousness it entails….
