Social media platforms enable us to share our updates, photos, news and thoughts to our circle of friends. As we browse through our social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter or even Instagram, we’ll notice certain trends of posts. Here are the 10 types of posts we often came across these days, did you come across similar posts?
Friends who love to share their new branded bag purchases or boast about their accomplishment at work. But make sure you stay humble with your words; otherwise, your friends will find you extremely annoying.
Instead of going through the customer service hotline, social media users love to post up statuses on their Facebook or Twitter to complain about all sorts of issues – poor customer service, horrible food, long waiting time at the counter etc. Not forgetting, most of those statuses are supported by photos (evidences).
3. Emo Posts
Do you also find posts like “my life is full of miserable memories”, “friends are disappointing”, “why am I so unlucky?”, “I wish that I’ll leave here and never needed to come back again” and other freaking emotional statuses? Well, no doubt that our own social media sites are the most convenient place to voice out our thoughts, but avoid spreading too much emo stuff around that might affect our friends around us too.
Some users love to tell the world every single thing they do from the moment they wake up. I wonder if they are full-time Facebookers or Instagrammers.
5. Positive Stories/ Notes
Enough said of negative posts. We love to be surrounded with positive energies. Some social media users love to share happy stories/ notes – using their inner and outer verbal expressions that infuse people’s life with purpose, meaning and vitality. This type of post engages more people.
6. Babies and Kids
I bet you probably see adorable pictures of babies/ kids pop up in your newsfeed all the time. Sharing baby photos on social media is the norm for many new parents. However, some deemed that it is unsafe to post everyday photos of their babies/ kids on social media because they will lose some control over what happens to the photos.
Quoters repeat the words of famous individuals to reflect their thoughts. Sometimes such updates may require the readers’ imaginative interpretations to understand what is really meant by the update.
8. Controversial Posts
Some people want interactions, their posts involve a controversial stance on a subject that their readers or followers are passionate about. But warn you! If you do write a controversial post, be prepared for some angry comments from your readers or followers.
#OOTD is so popular on Instagram. A lot of people started to master the art of the #OOTD post, sharing their carefully crafted looks with their followers.
I bet if you scroll any social media feed these days, you're likely to see 75% of it are about food. Instead of tucking the food straight in, you get your smartphone out, find the perfect angle, take a snap and upload it to Facebook or Instagram with a perfectly formed hashtag - #foodporn. Sound familiar? Don’t worry, you’re not alone!
What you post on your social media tend to reveal the type of person you are. So choose your language and words carefully before you post them up.
