Top 5 ways to annoy your social media friends while on vacation

You can hide, but you’ll never totally escape your friends’ vacations.

Weather Gloating

Those of us who live in colder climes are accustomed to getting obnoxious weather updates from friends on vacation in tropical destinations. “It’s 82 degrees here in The Bahamas, what’s the weather like in Chicago?” Don’t forget that pretty soon, you’ll be back in Chicago and someone else will be on vacation.

Vacation Photo Blitzkreig

We like to believe that each of the 900 photos we took on a trip are equally compelling, but please, pick one or two good ones and leave the rest on your phone or hard drive. No one, not even your dearest friends want to see 87 posts detailing every step you took on vacation.

Your Meal Tasted Better Than It Looks on Facebook

Food photography is an art and unless you know what you’re doing, chances are your meal will look like nothing more than slop on a plate.

Selfies Gone Wild

Your friends and family members already know what you look like. There is no need for your mug to be in every photo. Show us the Grand Canyon, not an extreme close-up of your nostrils.

The Kids Are Alright Once or Twice, Not 96 Times

Like every parent, I’ve been guilty of over-posting photos of my children. But when we go on a trip, this instinct goes into overdrive. No matter how cute your kids are, only their grandparents can tolerate dozens of similar photos of them frolicking on a beach.
