#STOP: 19 Things We Should All Stop Doing on Social Media!

We all have that ONE friend who goes overboard when it comes to using social media. Her wall is either flooded with duck-faced selfies, or she’s busy keeping the world clued in about every minute of her life. We give you some of the things we feel our friends - and us, if we are guilty of them! - should stop doing on social media. Trust us, timelines will be much happier places if we all refrained from doing the following. #JustSaying


1. Using multiple hashtags for every image one posts on Insta/FB.


2. #Hash #tag #like #this.


3. Wrte lke tis! (This almost gives us cardiac arrests every time we’re subjected to it.)
