Worst Social Networking Sites

We live in a day and age where social sites such as the infamous Facebook and Twitter rest as internet juggernauts. But where does is the line drawn from entertaining websites to total time wasters?
The Top Ten
1 Musical.ly

I've never gotten into this site at all. I feel as if it's catered to people with a "cool" music taste, and if you aren't into it, bad luck. It's also stupid because it's full of a bunch of ten-year olds who shouldn't really have a phone lip syncing to inappropriate stuff they don't know is inappropriate. If this is going to be the ultimate '10's memory, I'm not sticking around. Young kids should be doing stuff with their friends and focusing on education to some extent, instead of worrying about what Zara Larson song to lip sync to.

This is the worst! I have seen online what some people lip sync to. It's terrible! It's ruining the brains of little kids. These days, all everyone cares about is technology. There are some very inappropriate songs. If it was just regular songs, it wouldn't be bad... BUT... there is some terrible language in some of it. I have never, and will never, get interested in this website. Why don't children read books anymore? They just sit on their phones all day every day. It's TERRIBLE!

2 Tumblr Tumblr is a microblogging and social networking website founded by David Karp in 2007, and owned by Oath Inc.

It has a toxic user base, glorifies self harm and suicide, has extremely inappropriate content and almost no one uses it anymore because of its infamous reputation.

The community of this site may be the more hypocrite ever met, I received treats just because I disagreed with the eradication of anyone they considered as a burden of their petty life (straight, cis..),
saying they don't have enough representation, when series/movies games has tons of it, but the Tumblr people overlook that and keep crying about it.. just pathetic..

I met a person who pretended to be abused, but wanted to commit mass-murder on "the devil males", every single one of them, I could be a white-knight, but I saw past of the lie (also seeing the police and coming back in.. 5seconds? really credible..)
and people falling for this, wow..

pretty sure liars that made up a story is common on Tumblr, if it's the case, it's disgusting for those who have lived that kind of experience, I know that an actual victim don't get aggressive when you help them, only attention-seekers does that, because they want more and more and more attention.

I feel bad for the creator, he created a nice site, the staff helped me, more than FB does.. but the community is dangerous, push people to suicide for inequality, enjoy to be bullies and faking to be the victims when they are not.

to avoid, really.

3 Snapchat Snapchat is an American multimedia instant messaging app and service developed by Snap Inc., originally Snapchat Inc. One of the principal features of Snapchat is that pictures and messages are usually only available for a short time before they become inaccessible to their recipients. The app has evolved from originally focusing on person-to-person photo sharing to presently featuring users' "Stories"... read more

It has child predators, unwanted data collection and cyber bullying along with it being used for sexting making it extremely dangerous for children under 18 using it for anything other that innocent chatting with other kids.

Jesus Christ, it seems like I'm the only one at my school who doesn't get the point of this app. It's Instagram with stupid filters and the picture/video disappears during a limited time. People at my school keep telling me to get the app, but once I get it, I know I'll get addicted even though there is no reason to get addicted to it.

Imagine instaporn, I mean Instagram, but worse. A. It is a complete barren wasteland of boring, attention seeking fad-followers, B. More nudes C. You can't see pictures more than once D. No one remotely interesting E. Things you could post on Instagram, BUT DON'T for some reason. F. No one interesting. G. Every thing you send is for longer streaks

4 Facebook Facebook is a corporation and an online social networking service headquartered in Menlo Park, California, in the United States.

Fake news, misinformation, cyberbullying, privacy concerns, censorship and inappropriate content plague the platform. The platform Facebook has mainly negative reviews and an overall user approval rating of 2.3 out of 5 on the Apple App Store. Facebook is also the most hated social media company.

While Facebook isn't the VERY worst website (I'd rather put Buzzfeed at #1 with DeviantArt and Tumblr behind), it has several problems shared by others. Rather than using it for its original design, all that occurs is someone throwing in a famous post before it gets thrown back in the trash can we call history. Second, most of the pictures are either fetish drawings (looking at you DeviantArt) or bland selfie's which get fame for no reason (guys will use the excuse of T&A to defend a girl's selfie). Lastly, giant portions of the Facebook population is immature brats, clueless kids or skanky teens who create their own norm. Thank you for taking the time to read my rant.

5 X X (formerly known as Twitter) is an online news and social networking service where users post and interact with messages, also known as "tweets", restricted to 280 characters.

The platform is infamous for being controversial due to extreme poor content moderation with a huge vary of unethical opinions of others that are xenophobic and antisemitic against the Jewish community.

Abomination at it's truest. This ridiculous platform is apparently news worthy these days, with crybabies being offended by literally everything. It has brainwashed the media industry and almost taken over any brain cell that might have survived this apocalypse. If I could, I'd rather live in a time where this thing never existed. One day this is gonna fall or all the offended hypocrites had already killed themselves for not agreeing on opinions.

Wow I'm Surprised it is No1! I used Twitter for my business updates and used info but Twitter SUCKS Sometimes of the same post & retweet that they post every damn Day and malfunction errors! There are lots of things I can tell you what wrong with Twitter but you all why Twitter is Worst Social Networking Sites! But I do go it for business there ever know the sites has it problems!

6 Instagram

It creates depression, unrealistic body expectations and has inappropriate content and censorship due to it being owned by the controversial company Facebook / Meta.

Everybody on Instagram gets negative comments on their pictures/posts, but they delete those negative comments immediately because they think their "perfect" and they think that everybody has to love them and they can't handle the negativity they get. They want people to think that they get "all positive comments", but really that's all nothing but a lie because everybody gets negative comments.

A place where pedophiles, rapists, and stalkers roam... And people willingly post half nude selfies here just for likes aka, attention! This site is only encouraging people to be vain and superficial.

But there's always exceptions, like the galleries full of (amazing) works of art. (photographs, drawings, paintings, etc. )

7 Google+

Google+ needs to disappear off the face of the earth. It should not be connected with YouTube and the only reason why it is is because Google knows that no one cares about Google+ and a lot of people care about YouTube. Their thought process is probably "oh if we connect the two, more people will like Google+". They are wrong, and need to accept it already. I don't know a single person who actually uses Google+.

It's the worst but the Google empire that rules the internet shoves it down your throat by linking it to everything, to do anything online you need a Google+ account. Why Google, did you disgrace your kingdom and force the commoners in the internet from other empires that aren't as powerful, like the new rising empire you suppress, duckduckgo and your rival bing, by making them slave to you by forcing them to use your social media

I'm very shocked that this currently isn't #1. This horrid excuse for a social media site destroyed YouTube. It's forced on you if you make a YouTube account. If you just get rid of your Google+ account and keep your YouTube account, it won't let you comment, like, or subscribe to anything unless you get a new Google+ page. I think Google forces you to make a G+ Account because it's such a huge fail. This is gonna probably be the thing that actually kills YouTube... o_o
(Oh wait, it already did... )

This has to be number 1, all the other sites suck too but at least they don't force us to use them and they don't kill good sites, Google plus on the other hand is destroying YouTube and forcing us to use it.

It's also the worst social media of all time, it's not user friendly and looks like some 6 year old made it in 10 minutes.

(sorry for my poor grammar, English is not my native language)

8 MySpace

Complete social dead zone, constant site updates that do nothing but frustrate and confuse, updates that don't make sense, updates that are optional that should be mandatory, updates that are mandatory that should be optional. Enjoy your slow death, Tom.

Seemed like a good place to make a profile but only if you were some kind of a musician, actor, model.

It's completely dead. The owners should just sell the domain.

9 TikTok TikTok, known in China as Douyin, is a short-form video hosting service owned by Chinese company ByteDance. It hosts a variety of short-form user videos, from genres like pranks, stunts, tricks, jokes, dance, and entertainment with durations from 15 seconds to ten minutes.

More than half of all people are addicted to TikTok in modern day which could take time away from spending with family and friends and it has data collection, pervs and creeps, poor content moderation and lots of infamous dangerous challenges have been associated with the platform. It also has a controversial feature which filters out people who are deemed as old, fat, ugly and poor to only show you what you want to see which makes only certain people popular and creates suicidal thoughts and unrealistic body expectations.

It's a toxic app that is making uneducated and untalented teenagers rich and famous. Honestly, I like the idea of a fun video making platform (that's what Vine was) but when you are going to pay some random girls who can hit the woe to music then society is in some serious trouble. And the fact that they think it's some sort of career is even worse. You are making money off of dancing, when people with families are struggling to support them because of their low income. You hear that, tiktok brats? You are uneducated and selfish.

10 4chan 4chan is an anonymous English-language imageboard website. Launched by Christopher "moot" Poole in October 2003, the site hosts boards dedicated to a wide variety of topics, from anime and manga to video games, cooking, weapons, television, music, literature, history, fitness, politics, and sports, among others. Registration is not available and users typically post anonymously. As of 2022, 4chan... read more

Not really a social media platform but there is child oh la la on there and the platform is not for kids because if your on the wrong section of it 4chan could disturb you.

This is cancer at its finest. Literally everything is just anime. Every. Single. Thing ANIME IS CANCER. Especially when it's shared. The worst part is, it's built for memes, yet you anonymously post, so you get 0 credit for yiur meme, no matter how dank. 4chan is literally one of the most demonic, grotesque things on this planet Earth, and it needs to be killed with white phosphorous.

This site always claims to try to "hack" or fight other sites for stealing their stupid memes. They need to calm down.

The Contenders
11 Wattpad

Every story on there is just love and fanfics. Almost all the 'good' stories suck. The better stories are trashed and spat on, while crappy fanfictions with terrible grammar get all the attention. Seriously, these people need to get their grammar right, and learn how to judge a fanfic.

This place needs a rehaul and more definied rules. I've had my work stolen multiple times by teenagers and they do nothing about it.

Many people there are retarded authors who watch Twinkle Toes and can't write a proper fanfiction

12 Fanfiction.net

My Immortal was spawned here.

I don't know what this is but just reading the title made me vote for it

13 Reddit Reddit (stylized in all lowercase as reddit) is an American social news aggregation, content rating, and discussion website. Registered users (commonly referred to as "Redditors") submit content to the site such as links, text posts, images, and videos, which are then voted up or down by other members. Posts are organized by subject into user-created boards called "communities" or "subreddits". Submissions... read more

There are several sub-reddit groups that hate and insult women. There is even one that hates men that are gentlemen and good to women. Unbelievable to think such moronic people exists

Only signed up to it this morning, posted two things and the users started to just nit pick pointless irrelevant stuff, pretty bad community if you ask me.

If you are any female, there goes your rights and are told that you are a fake geek girl. Also told to go back to the kitchen.

14 Vine

This site is literally useless. All you could do is post 6 second videos and apparently appeals to the juvenile Internet crowd. And even worse, the kids at my school won't shut up about the damn vines

At least TikTok has more substance than this!

Just not my thing.

So let's get this straight, all you do is on this website is watch a cluster of short awful 6 second videos most of which are pathetic atempts at comedy, and this garbage is popular, I'm sorry but there is nothing funny about people saying Dees nuts, what happened and a kid getting a math equation wrong is not funny, it's just sad that stuff like that is considered comedy on this website is really sad, warning to those who haven't seen vine before should also be cautious of twerk videos

15 Deviantart DeviantArt is an online artwork, videography and photography community. The website was launched on August 7, 2000, by Angelo Sotira, Scott Jarkoff, Matthew Stephens, and others.

DeviantArt is known for child pornography, fetish and MLP shindig. The site is also known for its corrupt staff and removing and relocating everybody's "deviations" for copyright infringement and other violations. They don't actually seem to care about child porn on some of the members' accounts. I mean, one member had hundreds of shindig that are clearly underage children as the the staff got more problems than Milo Yiannapoulos or Donald Trump as I NEVER draw or photograph anything inappropriate. In the end, the DeviantArt staff needs to man up!

DeviantArt is not perfect, it needs some updating and more care about the content in it, but overlooking all that, I've felt DeviantArt has been the best Social Network I've met; people there treat me way too good and at any rate admins are more pending than others Social Networks I've met... I really feel I wouldn't change DeviantArt for anything.

Do not engage in flame wars/drama, because this site is known for its very sensitive dramatic community that some people in there can ruin your reputation by making callout/attack journals about you.

Tumblr in art form. There is a good side to this website but there is also a really bad side. The good side is full of great art and kind people, the bad side is full of bad recolours and pron.

16 Omegle

I saw a Youtube video of an adult on omegle then some creepy old man came on. The creepy man started jerking off when the adult said she was TEN. She censored out the old mans small stick though thank god

What is the purpose of the site when one one can contact another in a few seconds, all you see are flashes of people. Many as any other site don't want to chat with you Period...

Omegle, the place where 40 year-old men go on video chat and attempt to show you them jacking off.

God. One time I video chatted on monitored, this guy was jacking off with such a small penis! It was hilarious

17 Friendster
18 Chatroulette

Where people can talk to strangers!

There is no way of accomplishing anything with this useless social medium. This is basically an up close and personal interview, in which questions are answered to cater to the likes of the general public, solely for the purposes of attention. People are rated LITERALLY on face value, not to mention the amount of deprecation one will experience. Purposeless, shallow, and overall horrible.

Worst social media site ever. This should be at #1. This is the abomination of the world wide web. It's basically useless, mostly children use it, who are defenseless against bullies. People here are judged at face value and get bullied - and it's harmful in many other ways.
This site doesn't have any advantages or benefits that would make it worth using it.

This social network sucks! It allows people to get bullied and the bullies and cowards get a chance to hide behind their evil deeds through ANONYMOUS! I wish this network gets banned from every country, ESPECIALLY Canada! Plus, celebrity posers are there!

The worst cyber bullying cases happened all on one website. This one. 100% of the people on there are useless, downright evil or both. Ask any question and you will get the same thing. Messages like "go drink bleach! " And "lol why are you that ugly? " I take it that the people running this is with the toxic people because the toxicity is earning them sweet dosh! I will never recommend this thing to anyone.

21 YouTube YouTube is a global video-sharing website headquartered in San Bruno, California, United States. The service was created by three former PayPal employees on February 14, 2005. In November 2006, it was acquired by Google for US$1.65 billion. YouTube is ranked as one of the most visited websites, securing the 2nd place, only surpassed by Google Search. As of 2024, the CEO of YouTube is Neal Mohan... read more

The community is not even better than Tumblr, Deviantart and such.. the site has a good side with the let's play of a few youtubers,
what I hate is the spoiled follower-type, sincerely, those who are exigeant about the content or presence of a youtuber,
I have already seen some "if you don't do more videos, I unsuscribe", sometimes with an insult.. not mentioning those who pass a said-youtuber for either their RP or "selling free-iphones", this is just sick..
I mean, a Youtuber is not a robot, the person can't be here 24hrs, not everyone are into popular games and should put them in their playlists by exigeance of their "fans".

I hope the community could understand and be more patient in the future.

I really hate YouTube's community, once I realized somebody stole other's video and I tried to make it aware, but YouTube's community is way too full of ignorance as for take it serious...

I mean you can only record ten minutes you can't comment unless number 11 and the crapped up the entire app! It should be called pootube now or better gootube+! ONE STAR!

22 Bebo

Awful site. People who you don't know will come to your page and attack you if you posted an opinion somewhere they don't agree with. If you don't set your profile to private. Never was much people on it was just a fad with Irish and English teenagers. Rubbish really

This is a truly bad site! I've read about it because my daughter wanted to have an account and after I read about it I was speechless

Original Bebo was better, now I'm past the age of Bebo so who cares. I quit Bebo years ago.

23 Flickr Flickr is an image hosting service and video hosting service. It was created by Ludicorp in 2004. It has changed ownership several times and has been owned by SmugMug since April 2018.The Verge reported in March 2013 that Flickr had a total of 87 million registered members and more than 3.5 million new images uploaded daily.

People post pictures of themselves on there and their dumb enough to not realize that there are rapists and stalkers on the internet. People post fake pictures on Flickr too.

Flickr is how I learned B&W & color film developing. I follow those who document their work. I ask respectful questions and I share what I've learned as appropriate.

Does anyone even use it?

I agree people are becoming so dumb, the internet is not safe for any social media

24 Moviestarplanet

This website sucks, was on it for about a year and it kept getting worse and worse, I had people telling me that they knew were I lived and telling my little (9 year old) cousin that they were going to "make her have a baby"! I was awful.

I don't know what I hate more~this or damn musical.ly. and I HAATEE musical.ly with a firey passion. firstly, if you don't have V.I.P. you struggle more than you ever have in school to get good clothes, ore more than ten coins. And let's not forget about how it scarred me for life when I was 6 or 7. So me as a sensitive, sweet, innocent 7 year old in like 2015, ya gotta expect me to like disney princesses, and get scared easily. Right you are, friend! Searching the photos people upload, I found this freaky girl who's pictures were literally disney princesses as ZOMBIES. ROTTING, BLEEDING, WALKING DEAD ZOMBIES. I was so scared, even after my mom talked to me about it. That experience left me with paranoia and extreme fear of the dark that still lingers with me as a 6th grader. I seriously can't go to the bathroom at night without fearing that Walking Dead Cinderella with an axe will pop out and murder me. It's not even funny, I need help. Also, it may be responsible for my fears of ...more

A site targeted at 8 to 13 year old yet it is a nesting ground for stalkers, creeps and pedophiles. STAY AWAY don't let your kid on this website. it may look innocent but trust me its full of 40 year old men posing as 12 year old girls.

Even though I don't play it much anymore, Animal Jam is a MUCH better virtual world site than this.

25 iFunny iFunny is a Russian humor-based website and mobile application developed by Cyprus-based FunCorp that consists of memes in the form of images, videos, and animated GIFs submitted by its users. The mobile version of the site once featured a built-in meme creator tool. The app describes itself as a "community for meme lovers and viral memes around the internet."

Wait, only 30? VOTE THIS HIGHER! Never laughed, too many lewd accounts, and oh my god so many uneducated, egotistic, homophobic, racist people are on this app. DON'T use this app, speaking from a year-long user. It just puts negative thoughts inside you.

When I went on there expecting to see funny posts, I hardly even cracked a smile.

Just a bunch of unfunny idiots.
