8 Types of Facebook Photos That Everyone Hates ...

Sure, Facebook is a medium to share your life with your friends and family but where does one draw the line? Wondering what types of Facebook pictures annoy people the most? Read guest contributor Jessie's list to find out!

While social media has brought us many positive things, there are also a surprising number of drawbacks to the increased use of such networks in connecting with others. One of the most bittersweet features of social media is the ability to share pictures with everyone in your network. While it is generally nice to see what others are doing, it can sometimes get slightly irksome to see picture after picture of coffee cups and pictures of food (we’re looking at you, Instagram). But even those who stay away from Instagram are subject to certain types of photos that we regularly see taking over and can't stand anymore.

Concert Pics

We love seeing pictures of every song of that concert you went to! Oh wait...no, we don’t. They are blurry and dark, and I’m pretty sure you were moving when you took them. Also, we’re probably slightly jealous that we didn’t get tickets ourselves.


A Diary of a Baby

Okay, so one or two cute baby pictures are acceptable—we will probably even enjoy seeing how cute/hilarious they are. But we really don’t need a constant update of every step that your baby takes, and especially not every time they have their first bath/carrot/poop in the real potty. When it comes to baby photos, less is more.


The Newsfeed Spammers

And while we’re on the topic of less is more, that goes for just about every type of photo. No matter how interesting your life is, the chances are that your Facebook friends would rather see a little bit of everyone’s life, rather than just pages and pages of yours.


The Meme Monster

Some memes are funny; that’s why they become memes. But unfortunately, memes have become a monster that mean that just about anyone can turn a simple picture into an unfunny inside joke, an overly political message, or just something to annoy everyone who sees it.


Couple Pictures

As with baby pics, a few couple photos are nice to share with your friends and family. However, when you document every second of that weekend getaway, or upload each of your 100 awkward engagement photos, it might be a little bit of a couple overkill.


Mirror Selfies

Everyone has a front camera on their phone these days, there is no reason to be taking selfies in the bathroom at Applebee's. And while we’re on the subject of selfies in general, once again, less is more.


The Motivator

If you want to share your inspirational quotes with others, you are probably looking for Pinterest. Facebook is for photos, not that album of made up quotes from Marilyn Monroe.



If you want food pictures, you are probably looking for Instagram. If you are on Facebook, get your dinner off my newsfeed. Side note: have you ever thought about how ridiculous you probably look while taking that picture of your dinner in the restaurant?

We all love sharing our pictures across our social networks for our friends and family. It's better than a mass email and easier than a blog. But for everyone else's sake, let's all try to keep the cliche ones to a minimum. At least until we can make a new list of the types of photos that everyone loves to hate.

It's about sharing who cares what you put up

@Francg I understand all of that but which is why I hide everyone who does such a thing from my timeline. But I still find it annoying when people post pics of their babies every hour of the day as if they grew an inch. The child was 1 yrs old today and will be in the next 30 mins @ 24 hours. Want to show your family pictures? That's what private messaging is for. Am I right? No...oh.

Wtf- is everybody's problem? Facebook is whatever YOU- want it to be. It's all about posting what you want to post! Regardless if the "friends" Like it or not. I post my food, my concert pics, whatever I want because it's my profile! If you don't like what I post unfriend me, instead of bitching about my posts. The question is, are you jealous? I feel that this Facebook blog is pretentious. Get over yourself- or delete Facebook if it's causing you problems.

This is a horrible article. I don't have Facebook, but what other kind of pictures are people supposed to post? You say not to upload quotes because Facebook is for pictures, but then you tell us pretty much that all pictures shouldn't be posted. You didn't say anything about people uploading dirty or inappropriate pictures, but you want to have a hissy fit about people posting their babies acheivements. Girl, I don't think writing is for you.

Hilarious n on point

None of the points mentioned bothers me at all. You know, you're not obligued to see and give a 'like' to every pic nor state your friends upload, if you don't feel like it ;)

"Facebook is for photos" yet again people shouldn't post whatever they want on THEIR Facebook because it annoys you? I get some people are stupid but Jesus let them be! If you don't like looking at your friends' baby then unfriend them because that's how you feel about them. Apparently people can't share their excitement or happiness because it bothers their friends. Wow just wow at this article. So now you know people! Remember that amazing weekend you had? Well now you can only post two pictures about it. And people like you is what makes Facebook suck. Instead of complaining about people and hating on them, you should be trying to inspire them.

Duck faces and selfies from the front seat of your car...

Hahah made up quotes from Marilyn Monroe. That's so true

I'm guilty of a few of these to a small extent, but I'm sick of seeing pics of dashboard thermometers on super hot days from my friends here in Phoenix. First of all, that thermometer gives a skewed result due to the heat from the road, and secondly, we live in PHOENIX. It is almost ALWAYS super hot! We know it's hot!
