Social media is community on its own. It could be addictive. It could be enlightening. It could also be depressing and also funny. It has its fair share of pains and gains. Hardly would a day pass without social media drama and jibes.
People use social media for different reasons; some to relax while others to be updated with latest news. There are others whose social media to catch-up with old friends and the likes. However, there are people that are not even into social media and surviving and getting their grooves on – Respect to them!
That being said, here is my lists on certain people that you find on social media and they include:
1. The stalkers
These set of people love going through people’s pages to know what they have been up to, where they at and who their with? I think the exes mostly fall into this category. Stalkers are also die hard fans of celebrities, the people who are crushing on someone and enemies too fall in this category – they want to know if you doing better than themselves.
2. The opportunist
These people don’t waste time. They use social media for business activities. They have something to sell, an idea or skill, they put it up on social media. No time for play play, it’s strictly business.
3. The jokers
Their motto is life is too short to wear a frown. They are always making jokes online. Is it updates, memes, breaking news or photos, they are just too hilarious. We need them after a long stressful day.
4. The oppressors
Shout out to the ride or die chics/guys out there. Today it’s Dubai, tomorrow it’s a boat cruise in the Caribbean. They rocking latest designers wear. From head to toe, they smell money. To add to your envy, they seem to get all the likes and comments… Phew!
5. The family-oriented
To them family is everything. They appear to have the perfect life with lovely partner, cute children, good jobs and all. You really admire them and sometimes feel envious when they start posting pictures of their family and all. They should be #FamilyGoals.
6.The over schooled
As much as you try to understand what they are posting, you cannot seem to get grip of the direction/message of their post. Their analyses are too complex spiced with big grammars. Most times it is to waka pass or scroll down.
They are better off keeping quiet because your reaction to their posts would be like Duh! So what’s this one saying now???
8. The motivators
They are always posting inspiring messages and sermons. You need them in your spiritual walk so as not to backslide.
They believe there is no God and religion has been and would always be an issue for them. They open to debates on whether there is God or no God.
10. The silent
I’m still trying to understand this people. No profile picture, no posts but they are always online. Ladies without any form profile picture not only the one with their image are major culprit. Why the hidden identity??? Something fishy or they have their reasons best known to them.
11. The news breakers
Even before CNN gives the breaking news, these set of people know what’s happening. They have their ears to the ground and don’t slack. They have their niches be it sports, local news, entertainment, movies, foreign news. Some are well rounded.
When someone posts a photo, they would post their own. If someone makes a comment, they make their own too. To this people, it is more of a competition than a social platform of people.
13.The favour seekers
They bug you with endless pleas for favours and most times it is for financial assistance. You won’t blame some in need of jobs and so they deem it best to disturb influential people for assistance.
14. The post and delete
When nobody comments or likes their posts, the next thing is to delete it sharp sharp. I think they are controlled by people’s reactions.
15. The noise makers
They bombard your time line with their posts and photos as if they are the only ones in your friend lists. Sometimes you wonder if this person has a life outside social media.
16. The rude ones
These are the people that are too lazy to type or communicate effectively. Someone is celebrating her/his birthday instead of typing ” happy birthday” instead they type ” hbd” and the likes. You know now! They are experts in short-hand.
Did I leave any other set? Please join the conversation.
