In Focus: 8 Social Media Fails You Don't Want A Repeat Of

 

 

Social media is a wonderful 21st century innovation. Whether your brother is in the other room or your S.O. is on the other side of the globe, it helps bring you closer to anyone than you never thought you’d be. It’s a great way to stay connected with friends after high school and college. It’s a powerful medium to use when spreading awareness for a cause. It is all this and so much more.

However, it can also be a dangerous place if you’re not careful enough. Click baits, old, embarrassing photos and getting caught red-handed while stalking someone—these are only some of the things you want to avoid while using social media. Here are some of the fails we’ve all experienced that made us want to just disappear from the face of the earth. 

 

1. When Timehop reminds you what you looked like 5 years ago…

 

2. When a friend digs up and comments on an embarrassing photo of you to put it on everyone’s feed…

 

3. When you accidentally like someone’s Instagram post from 57 weeks ago…

 

4. When you’re in public and you got baited into clicking a video with dirty audio…

 

5. When you take a screenshot of a conversation for receipts and send it to the same person instead of your squad…

 

6. When you post a flamin’ selfie or OOTD and your tita comments: “Kmusta n c mommy mo?

 

7. When you accidentally tweet something personal on your company's account…

 

8. When you forget to logout of your friend’s phone and they decide to have fun with your account…

 

Cringe-worthy, right? So, the next time you decide to log on, be sure to be careful when using social media! What social media fails have you experienced? Let us know by leaving a comment below!
