REVEALED: The 25 most annoying things about social media
A poll of 2,000 Brits has revealed the top 25 social media sins.
The study was conducted by online casino Casumo.com, whose spokesman Greg Tatton-Brown said: "Although our survey was definitely light-hearted and aimed to find some of the funnier habits of social media users, we found that many people do get genuinely peeved by things they find online.
"We believe that everything should be as fun as possible – so if social media is proving to annoy you, take a short break and reflect on what makes it great.
"And you can always come off it entirely – there's no law saying we must be connected 24 hours a day, after all."
