Ever hesitate before you show other people the amazing, stupendous, totally amazing photos of your latest vacation getaway?
Ever wonder if others — family, friends, neighbors, colleagues — really care about the incredible views you had, the delicious drinks you sucked down, the beautiful beaches you enjoyed with your loved ones or besties?
Maybe you should … pause.
That’s right. Be smart. Think before you post!
A new study has found that 73 percent of people — yes, 73 percent — think it’s obnoxious and annoying when other people pepper their social media feeds with vacation photos, according to travel insurer Aviva and as reported by the New York Post this morning.
As the Post put it bluntly, “No one gives a crap.”
Roughly 45 percent of those polled said they do post holiday photos on their Facebook pages or other social media “to keep friends and family up to date,” the Post reported.
And “21 percent admitted they do so to boast about where they’re vacationing and 10 percent do it to make others jealous.”
If you’re wondering about the five most popular types of vacation photos posted by others, here they are: the view from the balcony, cultural landmarks and sightseeing photos, the first cocktail of the vacation, people met while on vacation, and local dogs and cats, according to Aviva.
