Fine, Facebook is a place where you can post whatever you like, and if people don’t like what you post they can just unfollow or unfriend you. But that doesn’t stop the rest of your friends from judging what you post.

So if you’re one of those folks who just can’t help but post any of the following, then maybe it’s time for you to rethink your social media strategy.

So if you’re one of those folks who just can’t help but post any of the following, then maybe it’s time for you to rethink your social media strategy.

#1. Posting chain statuses.

No one believes those anymore, come on!

#2. Being an obnoxious, overly enthusiastic sports fan.

No need to go on a 1,000-word rant on why this sports team is going downhill.

#3. Obsessive minute-to-minute posts about your engagement, wedding, and/or babies!

A few posts over the course of a week is fine, but you’re really pushing it if you decide to flood our feeds with your latest life event.

#4. Posting about drinking too much or doing illegal drugs.

Do you think that’s going to do wonders when HR checks your social media accounts after applying for a job in their company?

#5. Sending countelss invites to your latest gig/art show/improv show.

One invite is enough. Sending ten invites over the course of three days is going to get you blocked.

#6. Using your profile as your blog.

There are sites out there you can use to post your innermost ~feelings~ that gives us the option to check it out or ignore it.

#7. Adding people you don’t even know.

That’s just kind of creepy.

#8. Interacting with people you don’t NEED to interact with.

For instance, chatting up some girl who commented on your friend’s post.

#9. Sending out a thousand invites to Farmville, Candy Crush, and all those other games.

Just go away and play your game without pestering us non-players!

#10. Bragging.

You can post your achievements like your weight loss story or your promotions, but don’t rub it in everyone’s face all the time.

#11. Humble bragging.

For instance: OMG, I don’t even have my makeup on and my hair’s a mess, but I still get hit on! So annoying!

#12. Posting cryptic status updates.

And then when people ask about it, you say you don’t want to talk about it. WHY POST IT THEN?!

#13. Political rants.

Congratulations, you now have graduated from the Facebook School of Political Science, majoring in Incoherent Keyboard Warrior Rants.

#14. Badmouthing previous employers.

That just tells people how you’re in immature adult who can’t handle conflicts in a healthy way.

#15. Constantly posting cheesy motivational statuses.

Most of the time, it just looks like you’re trying to convince us that you’re happy, carefree, and #blessed.

#16. Sharing too much about your relationship status.

You’re married, engaged, in a relationship? Great. You’re in an “it’s complicated” relationship and you want to share the details of your latest fling? Not great.

#17. Drunk posting.

You might think you’re the modern-day Hemmingway with your latest drunken rant, but when you read your posts sober, you’ll want to be as dead as Hemmingway.

#18. Blocking your relatives.

blocking-your-relatives

You have relatives that genuinely care about what’s happening in your life. If you have unsavory posts you don’t want to share, just use the privacy settings!

#19. Oversharing.

We sure love reading statuses about your latest sexual conquest/fetish/bodily function!

#20. Minions.

EVERYONE is sick of these annoying yellow blobs!
