Top Ten Instagram Pet Peeves

Instagram is a place for aesthetic photos, beautiful people, cute pets, and mouth-watering meals. But let's be real, not everything is sunshine and roses on the 'gram. For every heartwarming dog video or breathtaking landscape, there's a nagging nuisance that leaves us rolling our eyes. Maybe it's the direct messages requesting likes, or the overuse of 'bae', or perhaps the flood of emo posts that seem a little too dramatic. Not to mention the ceaseless pleas for followers or those users with a few thousand followers who suddenly think they're a celebrity. We all have our own triggers, those little things that leave us sighing, "Not again..."

What are the Instagram pet peeves that irk you the most? This is your chance to vote on a list of those small but persistent annoyances.

Perhaps there's a particular pet peeve that you think is more prevalent but often overlooked, or maybe there's a well-known annoyance you believe is blown out of proportion. Whatever your viewpoint, it's time to express it.
The Top Ten
1 People not replying to your direct messages

Well if it's a celebrity, it may explain.
Users wise is a different story.

2 Free follower scams

Stay away from these people. The link in their bio can hack your account.

3 People who don't accept your follow requests
4 "Like this picture" DMs

I never understood the need to have tons of likes on a post... You just look like a desperate attention seeker.

5 People saying bae

Society needs to abolish this word.

It means poop in Danish.

6 Emo crap

There is always that one Instagrammer in your feed who has obviously spent a lot of time doing her hair in a French braid, make up (red lipstick, cats eyes, eyeshadow) in a dressy outfit all like "so ugly. I wish I wasn't here because I look hideous, I wish I had a different face!" There are starving children all over the world, and you are worried about your looks?

7 Whining for followers

So many morons complain not enough people follow them.
1. Why do you care? Followers do not determine your worth, Hitler had millions, Jesus had 12. Are you saying Hitler is better than jesus?
2. Post good content people want to see

Followers aren't for pride. What good is a follower when they are basically invisible and never like or comment on your photos?

Or when you decide to follow your friends, they follow you back..yet all of a sudden they unfollow you.
The rules are simple, follow and I'll follow back. If you unfollow, well screw it, you don't need my follow anyway.

I hate when people do that...get a life worth sharing if that's what you need to do

8 People with more popular accounts thinking they are better than everyone else

There is this one girl in my class who thinks she is somehow superior to everyone because she has 300+ instagram followers, well shes is spoiled rich girl with no talent in anything, ugly, fake friends, and is failing the 6th grade.

Yes! And to be honest 300 is not even a lot I've seen people with over 2k in my class but hate when they brag

I can relate lol. This black trashy girl named Amori (not trying to be racist), every time the teacher goes out of the class, she keeps saying, oh my gosh I got 1k Baes on Instagram. She's popular because of it and thinks she's all that.

9 Reposting the same photo
10 People think snapping pictures on their phone is photography

Instagram is mainly hipsters who want to seem artsy. Photography is done the hard way, with actual editing and with a camera, it's not easy.

The Contenders
11 #when #people #use #too #many #hashtags

That annoys me so much

12 Accounts that post too many shout outs

I do five every month

13 People who think they work so hard on their posts
14 Accidentally liking a photo is from months ago
15 Girls who take half naked selfies in front of a mirror

The only girs I mostly see doing this are the ones with and iPhone and honestly, they are just putting themselves out there jsut for more followers and likes, then have the nerves to go off on someone who comments something like "Dm me" or "Damn what's yo number", and they act like they didn't just post a half naked picture of them self.

I'm pretty sure we can all agree that those girls are only seeking attention by posing in front of a mirror in a bikini with their iPhone in their hands.

16 Double tap to-----

It's so annoying when people demand you to like their photo. You're supposed to EARN likes, not demand them.

17 People who like their own pictures
18 People who add you and then delete you immediately
19 "Couldn't load media" messages
20 Fan accounts
21 Slow loading
22 People who ask for followers

You're supposed to EARN likes/followers, not force people to follow you or like your photo.

23 The "cropping"
24 People who steal content
25 People that follow you and then unfollow you a few days later because they have "too many followers"
