    Anyone have any interesting experiences with idiots on social media? This one doesn't seem to be able to speak his own native language. And this is after it was edited for clarity

    I don't use social media really nor do I socialize with imbeciles.
    Facebook is made up of 99% shitposters and complaining twats.

    there's actually a Hungarian YouTuber making a series called "Facebook Idióták" (Facebook Idiots), where he screencaps, reads and mocks idiotic Facebook posts and conversations. It just finished its first season, and there's an actual film of it coming up that's gonna air in a theatre two times.
    It doesn't make much sense if you don't speak Hungarian, but here's the link to his channel if anyone's interested. He also does film parodies.

    I don't really like social media either for this reason (other than diaspora*). My Twitter is literally abandoned because I never really cared about it, all I keep it for is for publicising my blog's entries. Facebook has a lot of people that try to add you and then only share LOL FUNNY MEMZ and stuff...

    That's why my facebook is stricly filled with very few people.

    Shitty meme shared == instant page block, so if they share another one from the same source, it will never appear in my feed.

    As for twitter, I only follow people that interest me, nothing more.

    One of my (former) friends told that she wasn't lesbian, but that she just liked girls and hated men. And she had a girlfriend at the time.

    She's now married to that girlfriend.

    I've tried getting into social media, but it's such a bore. I'd rather hang out in a little community like GBATemp vs. view endless highlight reels of others' lives.

    I have every social media, but I don't use any. I use Twitter to keep up with game companies and a few people I like. My Facebook is literally just a megaphone for me to quickly reach many people for, say, a community service activity or something. And Snapchat is stupid.

    Like Dinoh said, everyone's just twats.

    There's also a Facebook page called: "כשאבא ואמא בני דודים" or translated: "When mom and dad are cousins" that does the exact same, I love them!!

    I don't go on social media for this exact reason... Can't people at least spell correctly when they're typing?

    Sadly, no.

    internet has become so easy to access that anyone, even illiterate idiots can access it.

    Well I use facebook but I often thought that it might be better to stop, at least with open groups and such.
    So many people seems completely stupid and a lot of people only want to hurt you and try to start a shitstorm no matter what you write -.-V

    There was one a Topic about bad behaviour on the FB page from a Television series and I wrote the story about two old people watching me and my gf eat from outside the window like we were some zoo animals, they even did handsigns and stuff which seemed to say "you did well" and "you ate a lot and mus be full now" and when I signalised them that I was annoyed by them they were just smiling -.-V (I guess they were like 60+ years old)
    I wrote that this is VERY bad behaviour in my opinion as I learned not to look on other peoples food and especially not like this staring and making signs and such. But well some people went back on me and tried to make be the bad one because me signalizing them that I don't like it was so very rude to those pore old people :/

    I get really angry sometimes but I try to just ignore it if possible, still it makes me think "why am I the bad guy now" and it kind of hurts.



    And yeah about the spelling, my English is no good at all but I usually won't post something in English on my FB or at least I try my best not to sound stupid, but there are LOTS of people who write in English even though there are not even able to write "hello" without any mistakes XD
    My GF allways shows me some of her friends posts and these are so hilarious XD

    I don't think social media idiots deserve anyone's attention.

    Social media should be called social memes media.
