The 8 Types of People You Find on the Internet


Oh, how we all LOVE the internet.

Okay, well, maybe it’s better described as a love/hate relationship. We love the internet for all of the information that’s at our fingertips (have your parents ever told you, “Back in my day, we had an entire set of encyclopedias!”?). Likewise, we love the internet because it enables us to connect with people across the world.

On the other hand, we hate that a vast majority of the information at our fingertips is inaccurate or fraught with viruses, and we hate that we have to deal with the lewd behavior and stupid comments made by people from all over the world.

Whether you’re on Facebook, scrolling through the comments on a news article, reading forums, watching a YouTube video, or reading a recipe, you inevitably come across these eight types of people who use the internet. Sometimes their behavior is entertaining, while other times it’s just plain annoying!

1) The Over-Sharer
Most commonly found on Facebook, the over-sharer is that person who thinks the world wants to know about everything they do and every thought they have. Depending on the person, sometimes these posts can be quite entertaining!

Hilarious things might happen to them all the time, or perhaps they just have a unique way of looking at the world. Even so, seeing a wall of text appear in your newsfeed multiple times a day from the same person can get annoying after a while.

But at least that’s better than the over-sharer who literally documents every aspect of their life. Going to the grocery store. Oh great, spilled some milk on the floor… Love when my bf gets me flowers!

Admit it, you’ve read one of these statuses and immediately thought to yourself, “Who cares?!” And honestly, who does?

Taking things a step further are the “vague posts” over-sharers make regarding anyone who wrongs them in their life. They’ll complain about someone’s actions, not naming any names. Or announce that they are “so fed up,” or any number of emotions, without providing an explanation.

It’s cool, just “unfollow” them and breathe a sigh of relief because you’ll never have to see another TMI post from them again! Of course, you’ll probably still have the urge to creep their wall every once in a while to see what drama is taking place in their life now…
