7 kinds of people you see on Facebook

They are a nuisance and people try in vain to avoid them. Here is a list of the types of Facebook trolls you are most likely to meet on the internet and how to tackle them.

The Dictionary

What they do: These are annoying people who will go about correcting every grammatical mistake you make. It was a typo? You were in a hurry? They do not care, they will correct you. They lurk on the Internet trying to find mistakes and pounce when they spot one. This is probably because it makes them feel superior to others and more learned.

How to tackle them: Ignore them. Unless you really do have terrible grammar, then you learn from them.

The Angry

What they do: They are always angry about everything. Anything and everything they see on the internet will somehow manage to piss them off. And, they will not fume in private, they will let everyone know. The Angry ones always have some pent up anger they like to release over the most silly things.

How to tackle them: If you do not want your day to be affected by their constant outbursts, unfollow them. Do not unfriend them because that might cause them to rant some more, just unfollow and live your life in peace.

The Political Expert

What they do: Anything remotely related to politics will draw these people out, like sharks smelling blood. They think of themselves to be political experts and are in fact extremely annoying know-it-all's. Starting a fight about which political party is better or how the present government is conspiring to destroy the county is right up their alley.

How to tackle them: Bear with them. Unless you want your own name to become part of a conspiracy theory, there is absolutely nothing you can do.

Laugh with them if their joke is funny or laugh at them if the joke is on them. Either way, you enjoy

The Commentator

What they do: Observing the world around them and commenting on everything is their passion. They like to constantly update their status or send out a tweet about current affairs. Anything that is going on will inspire them to comment to let the world know what they think. This is probably a result of increased self worth because of which they think their opinion matters.

How to tackle them: Read what they post. Even if you do not like their opinion, it is a quick way to learn about the things going on around. If you like to stay informed but do not like going through the news or newspaper, this is a neat little trick.

The Hilarious

What they do: Crack jokes, that is all they do. You will find them always cracking a joke, mostly inappropriate at the most awkward times. They are funny but lose control control once they have started. They probably do this to entertain themselves but sometimes go overboard and manage to anger people in the process.

How to tackle them: You can react in two ways.

Laugh with them if their joke is funny or laugh at them if the joke is on them. Either way, you enjoy.

The Over sharing

What they do: Somehow they seem to think people are interested in their lives. They share everything that they are supposed to along with everything they are not. You will find yourself reading about everything from their child's potty routine to their wife's favourite earring. These people do not know when to stop and end up putting their lives up on the internet for the world to scrutinise.

How to tackle them: Unfollowing is the best course of action. However, if they are a friend, you can have a chat with them and try talking them into sharing a little less. Be sure to mention you will miss seeing their updates every ten minutes or you risk losing them as friends.

The Spoiler

What they do: These are probably the most disliked people on the internet. No one likes to invest in a show, book or movie and then get it spoiled by some monster. But, this is exactly what The Spoiler does. They keep track of everything that is trendy and what everyone is watching or reading. As the first one to finish the newest episode of Game of Thrones, they really don't know how to hold back. Next thing you know, spoilers are out, your movie/book ruined forever. No one can fathom why they do this. Maybe they just want everyone to be miserable. Spoilers are sad and vile humans.

How to tackle them: Unfriend them not only from social media, but from your life too. You do not want this kind of negativity in your life. You have got 99 problems, getting spoilers won't be one of them.

Trolls are always hated on but, the truth is without them the internet would be empty. They provide the necessary entertainment and some more. So, even when they get on your nerves, you can't help but accept them as part and parcel of the world of Facebook.
