I'm really getting bothered by people who post pictures of their food on social networks, be it instagram filtered or not, I mean what the hell, why in the world would anyone do it? People who actually "Like" it are as braindead as the person posting it.

Why do these people think we want to see day-to-day what they are eating?

Most of them I can't delete from the contact list as well as I sometimes want/need to talk to them but what would be a nice way to tell em to "F*** sake stop posting this bull"?

Urgh, I could even understand when you're in an expensive restoran or something and taking a picture of how they serve food or what exactly do they serve but home made boiled potatoes with ketchup. YAY!

I am bothered by social media, do not use it and this would be one of the many reasons.

It doesn't bother me, what does bother me is cryptic statuses like "Annoyed!" or anything similar, to me that's attention grabbing because it requires people to fish for answers.

As long as this doesn't apply to pictures of beer. I like pictures of beer :)

Not to sound rude or anything, but what makes you think we wanna see this post?
Just cuz you don't like seeing pictures of food doesn't mean others don't.
I don't like seeing all the stupid pictures of cats people post on Facebook, but I don't complain, others like em.
I have friends that post food pics on Facebook, never has bothered me.
Each person has different likes or dislikes, and posting preferences.

No, you didn't sound rude at all. I'm just thinking what people find so amusing about these kind of posts.

I can't decide which is worse....the stuff that gets posted on social networking sites, or the complaints about what gets posted on social networking sites.

Seriously, it's a social networking/media site. People are using it exactly for what it's designed. Interestingly enough, said social sites give you full control over your own experience. If you don't like what someone is doing, you're perfectly capable of disabling notifications, remove them from your list or just ignore their posts? ;)

Just keeping it real. Too many people feel the way they use in life, should be exactly how everyone else uses it. Example: "Stop using Facebook to post about you or your life! No one cares!". Funny, that's exactly what Facebook is designed for....

Edit: For the record, I personally have issues with some of the things I come across on some social sites. If someone is "friends" with me or is a "contact" that I can't easily remove, I simply unsubscribe to anything they post.

I was being a bit sarcastic last post, but I do get what ya mean. Different things tend to annoy different people.
If everyone did post a picture of every meal they were about to eat, then yeah, that'd get pretty annoying quick, lol.

I genuinely don't understand why people Facebook/Instagram their food. I can only guess it started as an ironic joke based upon that "People literally post everything on Facebook" idea.

I mean, do you remember back in the 80's, when you had to bring your camera to the restaurant, attach the flash, setup the shot, take the photo.
Then you'd go to the park with your kids to finish the reel off. Take it to the chemist to get it developed. Come back 3 days later to pick it up only to find some blurry photos of your kids in the park, and a nice picture of your dinner from over a week ago.
Then you had the long task of either going to all your friends to show them, or maybe having them come over. I mean, you could fax it, to make it look all black and white, retro, arty...
Remember that?

NO. NOBODY EVER DID IT.
So why do we do it on Facebook?

But seriously, I think we are a generation (or at least we share the planet with a generation) that's obsessed with their own self worth, documenting every little thing they do kinda shows they existed, validates that someone gives a rats ass.

People on FB do that to me as well. Those people go in to a special group where I cannot see their posts.
