The Most Annoying Commentators on Social Media

 

facebook post

Dear Internet Life,

I enjoy social media every now and then, catching up on what’s been happening in the world. Whenever I need a good laugh, I would go to the comment section to read people’s comments below.

Although I love social media and the entertaining people who writes these interesting comments below the posts, there are a handful of commentators that needs to take a long break from the internet.

Therefore, let me reveal the most annoying social media commentators!

1. The Political Freaks

politica trolls
Ever since the 2016 election, people still TILL THIS DAY are still obsessed and aggressive with this Conservative versus Liberal civil war. Every time, I check the news on Facebook and Twitter, in the comment section you see something like: “Snowflakes, Liberal tears, and fake news.” I know this earth is not full of mature human beings and I know we all have our differences, but if you disagree with other people’s political views, accept it and let it go. Commenting a big paragraph insulting each other and etc. is not going to make a person change due to upbringing and ignorance. It is up to the individual to change.

grow up

Speaking of big paragraphs…

 

2. The Long and Extra Commentators

Long post Good
I love reading people’s comments when it comes to juicy, gossipy news, but at the same time my time is very precious. I don’t mind reading one sentence to maybe a paragraph, but reading comments long as essays are annoying, boring, and too extra! I know most users want to prove a point, but honey…just GET TO THE POINT!Also, if you have an interesting story to write about, blog it! Trust me, nobody has time to read your long essay-comment about your life story or why you are against the Kardashians (can’t stand them too, but really).

Therefore long commentators, please keep the comments short and simple. Because…

I wish Facebook has a 140 character limit.

3. The Dumb Commentators

I love following and reading celebrity news online catching up on what is happening in the celebrity world. However, when it comes to the comment section, you have people complaining about why E! Entertainment or People Magazine keeps posting news about Beyonce, Madonna, or the Kardashians. Some people seem to forget (or bumped their head) that these celebrity news sites are SUPPOSED to report about celebrities. If you are sick of hearing about a certain celebrity, just avoid it and keep sliding down your phone until you find something that is really interesting. It does not matter if you unfollow them or not, the writers are still getting paid!

 

4. The Trolls

For every comment section, there will be trolls that just want trouble and attention. Unfortunately, users still tend to fall into the troll’s trap by insulting them and insulting them wasting their time and energy. People, don’t fool with the trolls because those 15 minutes you wasted on trying to out-troll the troll could have been used by watching a funny YouTube video. Negativity is only a distraction. Focus on the positive.

5. The Chain Letters

Really? People still write those? I know it was a fad since the 90s and early 2000s, but there are still about 15% of users that still write them. I remember reading a chain letter about a ghost girl coming to knock on my door and kill me if I do not send the same chain letter to five of my user friends. Well….it’s been over ten years. I think the ghost girl got lost and gave up.

6. The “Likies”
Does this look familiar?

I understand the love for nostalgia,but let us just like the video and move on. We do not need to like your comment to like a song.

Well that is all for now…until I have another list.

I understand people have the freedom of speech and print, but we can all agree that we need more common sense. People do not think before they type.

For example…

If I spot a internet troll who just wants to fat shame or bully someone, should I waste my ten minutes to go low as the troll and bully the troll back? Will that make me better or worse?

If I keep debating with a person who thinks differently from me, should I just stop and move on and accept that there are people who need to open their minds on their own to see your point-of-view.

Most of the time, people really do not read people’s comments carefully and just quickly assume that is what they mean.  For example, I remember commenting on a post about some actress that looks much skinnier than she was on television. A user thought I was “skinny-shaming” her, but that was not the case.

I explained why I made that comment and was only going to explain it ONCE. If she still did not understand, or just wanted to keep feuding with me online, then I would just block her because my time is precious.  Just like texting, people’s comments can mean anything.

Life is Always a Test

Dear Life,
Life can be a beautiful, expensive bowl of crazy gourmet mixed salad. I say this because whenever I order a salad at a restaurant, the dish looks beautiful, but there are certain ingredients I don’t like in it like onions, tomatoes, and carrots. I had two choices. One, I could try the salad anyway, or dig in my salad to take all of the nasty ingredients out of my bowl.

Life is a test you are given every single day it does not matter, whether you are religious or not. Everything happens for reason whether you like the test or not. It is part of developing who you are.
You cannot escape a test because you can be tested in your home, in public, and even social media. About social media, we do tend to make worse decisions than good ones because we have the more freedom to be foolish than we are in public. Negativity will always be present on social media. It is up to you if you want to spread the fire.

You will always be tested with people, animals, and things that are non-living.
For example, you may come across a rude person, you might encounter a lost baby bird you found abandoned (this did happen to me a few days ago), or you may accidentally hit your foot against a wall. When these things happen, we have choices of what we are going to do about it.

Most of the time, our tests would be multiple-choice. We have good choices, bad choices, and sometimes we just don’t know what choice to make. Therefore, I will break it down below:
Bad decisions: Bad consequences, regret,and negativity
Good choice: Happiness, peace, and appreciation.
No choice: Fear, anxiety, worry, nervousness.
We all have chosen bad and good choices due to multiple reasons. However, we must try to make better choices in order to have a peace of mind.

Bad choices can be good too because we get to learn from our mistakes. When you are stuck with no choice, sometimes we need another person to help us make a good decision.
If lucky, sometimes we are given a second chance to take the test all over again in order to pass.
Another type of life test we are given are sometimes true or false test. This is where you are being tested about what is true and what is not. For example, you hear rumors, gossip, and slander about people, and most of the time it is something that you don’t know. For example, lets say a on social media, a person posted something like….this public figure worships…bacon and is a member of a bacon cult. So, you have a decision to make on whether if the gossip is true or false.

When I am given a true or false test, I always do my research. You cannot always trust the people you know or whatever news source you read. This type of test is what the majority of us are mostly failing due to ignorance and pride.
As for the media, I think it is good to have biased news stations like CNN and Fox news in order for us to do our OWN research to see if the current events are true or not. Every news station is flawed. In order to understand and know the facts is BEING IN THE SITUATION. You see traveling journalist risking their lives finding the real truth of what it is happening. You have people who are actually in this chaos to know the real truth. My overall point is, you will never understand the situation unless you been there!

Let me break it down…

Don’t assume something is true if you have never been in that situation to understand what the hell is going on. This goes for race, political views, feminism, religion and the list goes on. Therefore, do your research and showing statistics does NOT help.

Going back to life is a test…

Sometimes certain test can last longer than we expected. Oh yes, tests can last for minutes, hours, days, and maybe years.

years
In closing, Life is a test and we cannot escape it. We should never be afraid of tests because it helps develop who we are and understand life better. The choices we make comes from the lessons we study and learn from our family and village. We should never stress the bad choices that we make because we will learn from them and if we are lucky, we can take that test again. So give yourself a round of applause because you are a test survivor!
