We all use social media differently. Whether it’s our online diaries, our photojournals, or just a way to get news and updates from friends, it’s now a huge part of our lives everyday.

But, nothing in life is perfect, and even though we spend hours each day on social networks like Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and Twitter, there are some aspects of social media, and how we use it, that continue to make us mad, upset, or annoyed.

One group set out to discover what ticked people off when they used social media. They wanted to know which types of posts were most annoying? How often people find themselves looking at pictures of an Ex or someone they dislike? How long could they avoid social media and stay off the grid? 10,000 people responded, and the 50/50 split between men and women are quite fascinating.
