These are some of the plain stupid and foolish things people do in the name of trying to be popular on social media. According to a Nairalander, these are seven silly things people do on social media you must avoid.
1. Asking Someone out on Social media
Really? Like seriously? sad this is the most silly of them all… People who do this really have a lot of issues to settle. Ah mean, if I were a girl and you as guy asks me out on social media to be your girlfriend, I’d totally look at you as someone who doesn’t have confidence in wooing someone physically. Take it or leave it, It’s laughable. Here are my reasons, such relationship won’t even last because during times of conflict, the person who wooed won’t take the “wooee” seriously. For those that find this method to be easy for them, I advise you, if you really want something real, if you have respect for the guy or girl you wooing, please ask him or out physically so that it can enable you to see their body languages and the person who you are asking out will know that you are a serious minded person.
2. Having romantic feelings/crushing for someone on social media who you haven’t met physically with yet
Ah mean doesn’t this seem so awkward to you? Or should I say laughable? Of course yes the person’s comments, online personality, the calls, romantic online gestures will really send butterflies to your stomach buh heeeeeeey, slow down! You just haven’t met the person yet for goodness sakes! You don’t know his/her offline personality yet! He or she may not even be the kind of person u imagined to be. He/she might even have bad breath issues! Yes! Or even worse. So, you have to hold on with that feelings first, meet them in person, have a few dates, den you will be sure to proceed with the love you have already nurtured up for him/her.
3. Giving way too much info about your personal life on social media
The reasons for this aren’t farfetched. Now if I happen to have a misunderstanding with a nairalander and they happen to know from your posts that you aren’t what you seem to be, they will literally use that evidence against you! And I’m very sure you don’t want that. For those spilling way to info about themselves in their e-diaries, please watch it. OK? wink
4. Misjudging someone’s online personality as their offline personality
Now just because happen to post nutty, pervy, rash, erm you know, posing as some sort of bad dude doesn’t mean I’m a player offline. Hey! Don’t get misguided. A lot of online personalities are really not what they are offline, until you meet them in person than you can actually come to conclusions.
5. Regarding everyone as Jobless on social media
Hey! Don’t be silly! Because Mr A’s presence online is frequent at intervals doesn’t mean you should call him/her jobless. Since you have been monitoring their online activities, who do you think is more jobless? Think before you act!
6. Posting Uncivilized/unpolite/rude comments on social media
If you think you are really matured, please ignorance is the best answer. It’s silly to exchange rude words with people online. If you are wise, you will keep quiet.
7. Posting unclad pictures of yourself/your friend, or your sibling on social media
In case you didn’t know, it’s very silly to do that. There is provision for your personal pictures to be displayed in your profile! Some people create threads and upload their pictures or pictures of their friends or siblings and demand for opinions on how pretty/handsome they look.
