Post workout shirtless pictures

We get it! You go to the gym. Believe it or not, we can tell by looking at a photo of you with a shirt on. Only post about the gym when you lift a personal record or finally reach your goal weight. It’s nice to celebrate with you and throw you a like for your accomplishments. But try to wear clothes. The horrible fluorescent lighting at the gym isn’t helping to cover up your pettiness.

Their drinks from a night out

No one really wants to see how many drinks you had last night. It’s not that impressive that you like beer; a lot of people do. If you happened to discover a new delicious brew, keep the sharing to your friends that you also know like beer. If someone on social media is annoying you, know when to block them.

A novel about how perfect their relationship is

Even though Instagram doesn’t have a word count limit for their captions, you should.

A sentence or two will suffice. Steer clear of these other things you should never post about your relationship on social media.

Pictures of their car

Did you buy a basic car and upgrade it so that the engine is super loud? Please don’t post a video of you racing down the road; everyone within a 10-mile radius can already hear you. Make sure to never post these other types of pictures on social media either.

Complaints of any kind

This goes for men and women really. Various social media platforms don’t double as your therapist. If you’re posting about a complaint that’s funny and you think people will be able to relate to it, feel free. But if you’re upset that you didn’t pass your exam, just keep it to yourself and study harder next time.

Nothing at all

Everyone these days is active on some form of social media. If someone wants to show off a picture of you it’s a little hard when the most recent one is from that fishing trip you went on five years ago.
