Social media is a huge and sometimes dangerous place to be in. From time to time, we get to see weird posts from people that just makes us want to scratch our heads and ask them, "Why would you post that?" Just like us, girls, guys are also guilty of publishing these things online, giving us weird feelings about them.

  1. Selfies. What's worse than a selfie? A half-naked selfie that they supposedly took after working out or going to the gym or just because they're, oh we don't know, bored. Just no, you guys. We don't need to see these photos because we know you're working out just by looking at your normal, fully-dressed snapshots with your friends. No need to boast about how you loved keeping your body fit and lifting weights during your leisure time.

  2. Weird photos. And by weird photos we mean those stills from very graphic movies and horror films. Or those photos that make us feel totally grossed out. We hope we can just unsee them but, sadly, we can't. There is a good reason why most of us don't want to spend a few hours of our time watching horror and gory films. We definitely don't need a reminder on our feed.

  3. Messages asking for lives, coins, or gems. We understand you need these things to continue playing your favorite game, but can't you just send that message to people you're pretty sure are obsessed with that game just like you?

  4. Too much complaining. We're not the only ones who are guilty of this bad habit. Guys tend to complain and whine a lot online, too, complete with profanities. Please keep your language suitable for very young audiences. Stop spreading bad vibes online. There's so much of that in the world that we don't need you to add to it.

  5. Live posts about a game. Are you a newscaster? No? Then quit spamming our feeds with a blow-by-blow account of what happened during a basketball or a football game. We'd turn our TVs on or stream these games if we wanted to know what happened or who gave an A+ performance or which team ended up winning the championships.
