All the things no one wants to hear about on social media

Social media has rules.

We're sure it does. Codes of conduct from the likes of Twitter and Facebook about what you're allowed to say. 

Abusive stuff: clearly not okay. Just because it's the internet doesn't mean it's not hateful. Don't do it. Ever.

Illegal stuff: see above. 

But what about all the rest? The things that there aren't rules for, but wouldn't be okay to announce in normal real life contexts?

Here follows our list of things we'd like to see less of on social media. You can ignore it. You can complain about it. We just hope you pause to have a think about it.
