when your friend always says ew - October 23rd 2010, 09:02 AM

dosent it really bug you when you compliment one of your friend's photos on facebook and their like omg no im so ugly in this photo or i hate this photo. if they hate it then why did they put it up?
and when they put the caption as ew this pic is disgusting and then they get tons of compliments about it.
it annoys me so much. my best friend does and omg i want to face palm for that.

Yep, that's annoying. I don't actually have any friends who do that, but I've seen other people do it. Why put the photo up if they don't like it? Maybe they just want the attention and compliments.
It annoys me when people upload and tag photos of me which I hate

It is annoying especially because it's most likely done so that people will comment going "Oh no, you're pretty!". I mean, I see nothing wrong with getting compliments but when you purposely say things to get them, then it's annoying.

And I agree with what you said, if they think they're ugly in it and hate it, why upload it?

I used to get annoyed whenever I saw photos/comments like that. Now, I just feel pity for the other person. It's a shame that they don't think they're pretty. It's a shame that they need to fish for compliments in order to feel good about themselves. I find myself feeling grateful that I don't need to do any of that. =) Maybe it's not the nicest thing in the world to think... but it's certainly one way to change a negative emotion (annoyance) into something a bit more positive (at least for yourself, haha!).

Maybe they really think they are ugly. I usually follow on with the title commenting on their photo with a "you are right, you're ugly" just because I want to agree with them.

Everyone is born right-handed. Only the greatest overcome it.

yeah it's annoying. it's just attention seeking 9 times out of 10. fishing for compliments.

Yeah, I agree with the other posters. They're more than likely just looking for attention and seeking compliments. I too feel pity on them for doing this, it's kind of a sneaky move for getting a boost for confidence.

Best to just ignore it I suppose!

omg i know what you mean. i feel like sometimes they do it just so that they can here people say "oh no youre beautiful" or whatever, just because they like to hear that they are pretty or whatever and they like the attention. but yeah its SO annoying.

It's normal to have the occasional unflattering photo that you don't like, but if you really don't like it you can untag yourself or change the caption and not draw attention to it. It annoys me when people are obviously just fishing for compliments. I will willingly slag myself in a photo but I wouldn't want to do it in an attention-seeking way..people like that seriously irritate me. If you genuinely don't like the photo put it away. No one is gonig to take you seriously otherwise.
