We live in a digital world, one where everyone believes someone out there cares what they have to say, or what they did that day. And yes, it can be fantastic, the tiny satisfaction I get out of subtweeting about someone who doesn’t even use Twitter alone is great. Here’s the thing though, the general population doesn’t give a sh*t. It’ not just millennials obsessed with documenting their entire lives either, Aunt Jane I see you posting about your weekend with the girls, high school teacher who I added after graduation I see your travel photos. The truth is there are posts we all make that people just don’t care about, but we can’t stop (I’m sure we could if we put real effort into doing so…). Here are the top things we think people care about, and yes I am guilty of some of these posts:
1. You’re “dating your best friend”
Yeah I went real bitter, real quickly deal with it. Lovely, you have found someone you care for, but no one cares that your partner is also your best friend.
2. What you ate/cooked
If you follow me on Snapchat, you know I’m guilty of this one for sure. We all know that no one cares what we ate but we just can’t help but post a well presented photo. #sorrynotsorry
3. Your baby
You all knew this would make the list, please post pet photos instead.
4. Your relationship drama
Not only is this annoying, but its unfair to your partner to air your dirty laundry like that.
5. Minion Memes
Just stop. Its only acceptable for parents, imo.
No, I will not post one.
6. Game of Thrones spoilers
Granted, I don’t watch the show (I PROMISE TO WATCH SOON OK DAMN). But I grow tiresome of seeing fan theories as Facebook statuses. Have a viewing party at a friends and discuss it there damn.
7. Things that bother you that other people post
If you don’t like it, don’t look at it. The unfollow button is there for a reason.
I should take my own advice I suppose.
