Which Popular Social Media Trends Can You Absolutely Not Stand?

But on the flip side, it can also be super annoying, and a huge part of that is because of the obnoxious trends that have been engraved into social media.

So now I want to know: What are some social media trends that you think need to disappear ASAP?

Maybe you think that the era of doing huge gender reveals strictly for social media should be behind us because they’re outdated and can even cause more harm than good.

Or maybe you simply wish people would retire the trend of doing TikTok dances in public — especially when they get in the way of other people.

Maybe you wish the newer trend of pranking random people on the street for a couple of likes would disappear as fast as it got here.

Or perhaps you simply cannot stand how people feel totally fine with filming strangers just for likes because it's a huge invasion of privacy.
