The 13 Types of Social Media Users We Hate

I go through stages when it comes to posting on social media. There are periods when I post daily on Twitter, like Trump, but I don’t talk about walls or target people’s “sadness” levels, it’s usually GIFS of reality stars shaking a finger saying things like, “Yaaaas!” or “Oh no he didn’t.” There are times when I suffer from platform fatigue and need a digital detox. You won’t see me for weeks except maybe on Snapchat. (Don’t judge) I believe our posting patterns ebb and flow, depending on what’s going on in your life. Got a new job? We know — you post updates every 3 minutes on how you love it there. Just had a baby? Oh, yeah, we’ve known since month 3! Got a puppy? MORE! SHOW ME MORE!

There are research studies linking Facebook to depression or is it depression to Facebook? In my time as a social media recruiter, blogger, and strategist — I’ve come across several types of people that certainly fall into one category or several that abuse and use social and we have grown to hate their posts. I’m proud to announce I’m five of the below and recovering from two. What Type of Social Media Poster Are You?

Monday Updates: When You Burn Your Hand in Brooklyn

Last week while cooking, I got a 2nd degree burn on my hand that instantly made me look like I belonged under a bridge asking people riddles before they could cross. It was pretty gross and the pain that came along with it was miserable– lasting for 10 hours straight. That’s the last time I fry spam in a cast iron skillet.

German immediately transformed into Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman and ran off to get me burn spray, alocane, arnica gel, Neosporin, medical tape, wrapping bandages and a large Dr. Pepper. (Don’t judge)

Matt Dallas and Blue Hamilton Gay Husbands Put My Marriage in Danger

matt-dallas-blue-hamilton-crow-gay-married

My husband is madly in love with Matt Dallas and Blue Hamilton, and not just because they are sexy gay men, but he actually loves their lifestyle–or the one they publicly display at least–not only do they showcase husband fun in their youtube video series Matt and Blue, they have their 2-year-old son, Crow, in tow–which adds to the fascination.

Besides sometimes catching a glimpse of one of them in sexy underwear, my husband of six years is now obsessed with the notion of kids. And I blame Matt and Blue and their gay husband video series. Now that gay men or gay couples can adopt children, I’m looking for advice on the topic for the sake of my marriage. German truly won’t stop talking about adopting a child. Oh, we have a video series too–but you won’t catch us in undies. (You’re disappointed, I’m sure!)

Update on Rica Famosa Latina

rica famosa latinaGerman and I finished Season 1 of Rica Famosa Latina on Hulu and we started Season 2. I told you, we are late to the Spanish Reality TV game so don’t hate on us too much.

Give us credit for binge-watching this train wreck of female friendships explode in front of our eyes. Yes, the show is in Spanish, so I missed a few insults and jabs, but I was able to keep up enough to know when the claws were about to come out!

Because I fell in love with a few of the characters, I’ve reached out to a few on Twitter to see if they’re open to an interview. Hey, it’s worked before.

Who do I want to talk to and why? (to read my breakdown of the ladies and my previous blog about the show and why you should be watching – read here)

Notice I don’t care to speak to all of the cast — just a selected few and I’ll explain why.

  1. Adriana Gallardo. I want to know what the show did for her brand and if it affected her business. I’d like to understand if she was portrayed in any way that she didn’t ultimately approve of. I mean, things got cray on the show!
  2. Estela Mora. I’d need to know more about her relationship with Beto Cuevas and how she keeps her body so amazing! She’s from Argentina and her accents and phrases on the show having me constantly LMAO. I have even picked up the word “boluda” and “boludo” which I take it to mean dumbass. I heart her. She’s such a strong personality on the show and she’s probably the only one who saw through Rosie Rivera’s FALSE story of how Jenni Rivera left her nothing, but she’s okay with that because she wants to “work for her money.” You can’t tell me that your own sister, with so much wealth, not leaving you a dime, doesn’t sting. Estela said it best when she said, “I don’t buy her story!”
  3. Elisa Beristain. I feel so strongly about her (in the positive) that I must have some sort of contact with her. Tweet me Elisa, comment back on Instagram. I need to know what Pepe Garza, your husband, a man who is so respected in the music industry truly feels about you picking fights, physically attacking people, and bullying them around LA. He is so humble and grounded, yet she is over the top dramatic and admits to having and needing therapy on a regular basis.
