You went out to dinner and, to put it mildly, you did not have a good experience. What do you do? If you’re of a certain generation, your next move is probably to write a scathing review on Facebook or Twitter.
Their intent may be to display witty Twitter hashtags, impressive food arrangements and pictures of cute kids, but the effect is to drive you nuts! A new survey has mapped out which online behaviors irritate us most. Although Facebook, Twitter and Instagram are sources of much entertainment and information, the coin has a flipside: For many, they also are a source for intense annoyance.
Social media is everywhere: By phone, laptop, tablet, desktop or even a robot, like it or not, it’s how people communicate today. The laws dictating social propriety have been overturned.

Not only at school, but via text message or on social media, there's evidence that students are increasingly bullied by their peers. This physical, verbal and electronic harassment has led to troubling consequences—victims can wrestle with depression, fear and anxiety, even to the point of committing suicide.

I’m on Facebook. I’m not proud. Admittedly, I really only check the site to monitor Cranky’s postings—what boys she’s posing with, scanning a photo for a stray can of beer in the background—but a problem has emerged. Facebook no longer is the cool college social networking hub it was in 2005. Now it’s the 21st century equivalent of a slide carousel of your neighbor’s family vacation.
