I was feeling quite bored on this Sunday morning / afternoon, and after hours spent scrolling [and re-scrolling] my Facebook news feed I decided to dedicate a blog post to a couple of stereotypes which form part of my Facebook friends.
I'm sure that you have a couple of these among your online friends.
This is meant as a humorous post - so please don't get offended [although I'm sure that by next week I will have less than 414 friends]
1) The Selfie Queen [or King]
This girl/woman/boy/man actually litters your wall with selfies - but not taken on different occasions mind you. All of them are all captured on the same day - so same outfit, makeup etc but with different poses. Can't decide on which photo to upload? Simple! Upload them all.
2) The Narcissist
This specimen 'likes' their own photos and their own status updates / posts.
3) The Born Again Vegeterian
Once a meat lover, this specimen wants us all to know that he/she no longer kills animals / eats meat. Most of the time they will upload photos of slaughtered animals to put us off our bacon. It's ok if you're vegetarian, just don't post it all over my wall.
4) The Religious Being / Non Religious Being
As the name implies. this person likes to share posts related to religious stuff. Most of the time they will also share posts similar to 'Share this if you love Jesus, don't share it if you love Satan!' On the other hand the non-religious being loves to share funny or ironic posts which relate to religion.
5) The Now You're in a Relationship, Now You're Not
This being changes their relationship status every single day. In a Relationship. Engaged. Single. And so forth.
6) The I'm Going to Remove my FB Profile
Yep, I've seen my fair share of these in my lifetime. They declare that they do not need Facebook, they delete it for a couple of days/weeks/months, but after a while you see them back on here again. There is no escape from this hell hole!
7) The Combined Profile
Oh yes. You know these - the ones who are in a relationship but choose to use only one profile between the two of them - often combining their names into one. Inevitably you will never know who you are talking to, which may result in fights/making a fool of yourselves.
8) The LOLer
This person only comments by using just one word - an acronym - and yes, you guessed it. It's LOL. Not. It's like a free pass - they use it to make fun, or to sympathise with you.
9) The Instagrammer
Most of the time this person records every minute detail of his/her life on Instagram, and of course shares it on Facebook. They take pictures of their food [mostly], their drinks, chocolate, their purchases, etc.
10) The Hashtagger
#selfie #igdaily #love #summer #nofilter
You get it. This person practically hashtags EVERYTHING. Some of them even take it to the next level and they #hashtag#like#this#because#thats#how#they#roll.
11) The Gamer
Sends you game requests ALL THE TIME. Even if you do tell them that you never play that game - or even if you never send them any requests back.
12) The Animal Lover
Post animal photos all day long. We get it, you love animals. We love them too.
13) The Gullible
Share this post to win a free iPhone 6! Press like to win a Caribbean Cruise. No. It ain't happening honey.
14) The Quiz Taker
Take this quiz to find out which movie star you are. Or which character you were in a past life. Bleh. It's ok to take these type of quizzes - just stop sharing them [or stop sharing so many of them]!
15) The Complainer
Complains about everything! The country, his/her life, the weather - anything ticks this person off.
16) The Change Your Profile Picture Every Day
Yep. And if you do not get enough likes or comments, change it again.
17) The Happy Family / Couple
These lovebirds always write on each others wall - 'Oh I love you! Thanks for being there for me' and 'You're the one for me' etc etc. Can't you just send these messages by pm or messenger? Get a room!
18) The Quoter
They share motivational quotes all day, everyday. Sometimes, they even use them to caption their profile pictures / photos.
19) The Tagger
This person [or pages dedicated to shops most likely] tag you in stuff/photos that you really don't care about. Stop doing it!
20) The I Can't Wait For Friday
Come Sunday, this person will start complaining for the week to be over. Does nobody here love their job?
21) The Liker
Similarly to the Loler, this person only communicates with you by 'liking' your updates or your photos. But rarely ever constructs a sentence.
22) The Video Sharer
Hey! I want to share with you that I'm listening to this song! How cool am I? I'm also listening to this, this and this. Seriously, is there a need to share your whole playlist on Facebook?
23) The Transformer
This is the guy who has a photo of a car as his profile picture.
24) The I Never Bother Talking to You, but Hey! I'm in this Competition and I Need Your Vote
Your mobile pings. You get a private message. It's from this girl or boy who you barely know, or barely talk to each other, but she/.he is taking part in a competition and she/he needs you to vote for her/him. Pretty please.
25) The Stalker
This person spends all day stalking persons, liking all their photos and status updates [old and new]. Sometimes they even stalk people who they're not even connected with.
26) The Hey! I Have a Social Life
This woman/man loves to show us how popular / full their lives are. Going to the beach. Going to pv. Having cocktails. Boarding the plane. Going Shopping. Heeyyyyyyyy! I lead such a busy life.
As for me, I believe that I am a mix of several of those mentioned here.
