Just like most people these days, I’m pretty active on Instagram.
I’m considerably active because I use the beautiful power of Insta to share my blog posts and reach my audience. Social media is a gift from God, really.
With that being said, here are 5 Dumb Things That People Actually Do On Instagram…
1. SFS AND SUB-4-SUB
If you’re not familiar with the lingo, SFS stands for Shout-Out-For-Shout-Out, and Sub-4-Sub is basically someone asking you to follow them and they’ll follow you back. You probs already knew that, but I was today years old when I finally understood it.
What is it about SFS and Sub-4-Sub that bothers me so much? It’s just the fact that someone had the audacity to even ask.
Can’t we just be nice humans and give shout-outs and follow people just because? Why do they have to return the favor? It’s a simple logic, people.
2. QUOTING YOURSELF AND OTHER AVERAGE JOE PEOPLE
One of THE dumbest things people do on Insta is quote themselves or any other random person that’s not a public figure of some sort.
What even is the point of this???
I don’t go around quoting myself in real life, so why would I do it on social media? It’s really dumb.
I don’t have to say much about this one. I’m just one of the many people who are tired of the in my feelings challenge, the dele challenge, the zoom challenge, and many others. Just stop.
4. POSTING PICTURES OF FOOD
It’s tacky, so PUH-LEEZE do not post pictures of the meal you’re about to devour. No one wants to see it, and no one cares.
5. FAKE INSTAS AND SPAM ACCOUNTS
Some teenagers apparently have separate accounts that are used for posting random stuff on. These are called spam accounts and ‘finstas’. They’ll basically just spam you with memes and idiotic Snapchats.
Most teens I know of keep their spam accounts hidden from their parents. Why? I don’t know, exactly. Maybe their parents wouldn’t be proud of what they’re posting? Probably.
I don’t understand my fellow teenagers.
Post responsibly, kids.
I could rant FOREVER, but I think this is a good place to stop. 😉
