Why Facebook Selfies Ruin Your Real Relationships

If you’re one of those peps that upload a constant stream of photos of Facebook, STOP!

Over sharing on Facebook is an everyday thing. I try to keep my posts to a minimum, but some days I do get a little click-happy. My rule of thumb is one or two posts a day. However, there are folks out there that blast the Facebook feed with a constant stream of posts. Some seem to forget the real world still exists and those post can effect your relationships.

A study shows what we already knew. Over sharing on Facebook ticks people off. A study from the UK found excessive photo sharing makes people like you less, even in the real world.

The study’s lead author Dr. David Houghton wrote:

‘This is because people, other than very close friends and relatives, don’t seem to relate well to those who constantly share photos of themselves.’

He continued,‘It’s worth remembering that the information we post to our ‘friends’ on Facebook, actually gets viewed by lots of different categories of people: partners; friends; family; colleagues and acquaintances; and each group seems to take a different view of the information shared.’

So what are the top things people post that annoy the world?
