18 Things Students Do On Social Media That Need To Stop Happening in 2016

These days, using social media is as much a part of student life as lectures, deadlines and pot noodles. However, there are some things students do on social media that really just need to stop happening in the new year.

1. When someone brags about how amazingly productive they’re being.

2. Or complains about how much they’re struggling when they’re clearly miles ahead of you and almost everyone else.

3. When someone takes a relieved selfie while submitting their essay two whole weeks before the deadline.

4. And then proceeds to relish in their freedom by snapchatting you about how much they’re enjoying their freedom.

6. Or when they Facebook stalk someone on your course and accidentally like their photo from your account.

7. Or, even worse, when they do it on purpose.

8. When students who do a Year Abroad keep spamming your timeline with posts from their new blog.

You enjoy the first handful but it quickly starts to feel like they’re just shoving their happiness in your face.

9. Or make you jealous of their sunny, wine-in-hand Year Abroad photos.

All while you’re stuck in a boring lecture next to that person with a cold.

10. When someone takes a photo of their Starbucks at the start of every lecture.

Why?

11. When people live tweet their pre-exam panicking and their distress starts to rub off on you.

12. Or when someone creates a Facebook group for every single one of your course modules.

13. And proceeds to use them to find out what everyone wrote in their exams.

Thus making you realise how many mistakes you made.

14. When someone vents on Facebook every time another student requests a library book they’ve been hogging for ages.

That’s how libraries work.

15. Or never tweets about anything other than how much they hate their course.

If you hate it that much maybe you should do something else.
