10 Things We See Too Much On Our Newsfeed

Here’s to the posts we see way too often on our timeline and the friends we love anyway.

 

1. Negative Comment’s. – You know there’s always one person who can make something negative out of anything. Nine times out of ten it has nothing to do with you and everything to do with their perspective. So don’t take it personal!

2. When every post is a complaint or asking for drama. – If it becomes too much Facebook and Twitter now have “unfollow” buttons where you can hide such unwelcoming posts.

3. “Type ‘Amen’ if you love Jesus, keep scrolling if you don’t.” and other tests of faith.- We guarantee you God wont ask if you forwarded that chain letter before you can enter the gates to Heaven.

4. Sub-posting. – You know those posts that are clearly referring to someone without mentioning their name? We know it, and most of all our first resolve should always be with that person before social media.

5. Impartial posts. – These are the cliffhangers that imply something serious but leave no explanation. Things like “I can’t believe it.” Not only could it worry friends but if you or someone else are going through something serious it should probably be talked about with someone trusted offline.

6. The “to the guys messaging me, I’m not looking for a relationship.” public post. – This is the post really letting everyone know this person is wanted by all the guys and should probably be handled privately by restating boundaries.

7. The unending tagged photos that have nothing to do with us – The great news is Facebook gives us the option of not only untagging ourselves but turning off the endless notifications that follow.

8. When someone shares a half naked photo and it randomly pops up on your news feed.

9. The post with way too much personal detail, like the fact that their cramps started today.

10. Speaking negatively about the current relationship.- The way I see it, it goes two ways- either separate or get help but never take it to the public. A relationship is in between two people and should be handled confidentially in that manner.

What it all comes down to is discernment. Discernment is very much having the wisdom of knowing what to say, what not to say and if what’s being said is necessary.

    Thank you for clarifying that chain mail isn’t that important. Theres always that time when you are on an account that has like 70 chain messages about God and how “you will be denied at the doors of heaven if you don’t repost” sometimes i just get stuck with those not knowing what to do.What i always say is chainmail doesn’t reflect your love of God, your worship does and your love for Jesus does.

    Those chain posts are pretty annoying! Can’t scroll through Pinterest without seeing, “Repost if you love the Lord. Remember that God is watching you.” If I reposted all of those my entire feed would be chain posts! 😀

    #3 is so recurrent!!! I’m glad I’m not the only one who thought that God wouldn’t ask for that.
