Here is the written from of above infographic.

The loved-up Couple

Are you forever posting soppy pictures of yourself and your other half? Do you publicly declare your undying love on a regular basis? If so you could be inadvertently winding your Facebook friends up. 4.1% of the people surveyed think that you should get a room and stop bothering other with your romantic drivel.

The exaggerator

If you are prone to bending the truth on occasions then Facebook might not be the best place to do it. 4.9% of people say that they find people who exaggerate too much the most annoying of all.

The shameless self promoter

Come to my event - Buy something from my shop - Listen to my new song... If you are someone who is permanently trying to promote your own interests on Facebook then you might want to think twice. 6.4% people find putting up with yourself promotion one of the most annoying things about using the social media sites.

The professional arguer

If someone that you knew in real life was constantly bickering, contradicting and belittling everything that you said then it is safe to say that your friendship wouldn't last too long. The same is to be said for Facebook friends, as 7% of people do not like those who argue too much online.

The long lost friend

Remember that girl from school who you used to play with when you were five? NO? Well neither do 7.9% of those asked, and they certainly don't want to be the plagued with friend requests from someone they haven't seen for aeons.

The candy crush pest

10% of people are offended by the regular requests that they get from friends to play games on Facebook such as Candy Crush, Farm Ville and Mafia Wars. If you want to waste your day moving sweets around or ploughing a virtual field then feel free. Just don't pester the rest of us with this nonsense.

The wannabe Masterchef

You don't have to be Gordon Ramsay to take a keen interest in your own culinary creation. However, if you are the type of person that is regularly posting pictures of your beans on toast or fish fingers then 11.8% of people are of the opinion that you are taking it too far.

The Facebook baby bore

Most people think that their own baby is the cutest one in the world, and so they should. What irks 13.1% of those surveyed are those people who seem to think that everyone else on Facebook is equally interested in seeing 10 new pictures of their little angel every single day.

The boasting traveler

These types of Facebook friends only like check in and update their statuses when they are on holiday, in a vain attempt to make their friends feel jealous. 15.8% of people have no interest in learning that you are sipping sangria on the beach while they are hard at work back at home.

The update addict

Topping the list with 19.1% of people claiming them as the most annoying Facebook users are those who update their status on an almost constant basis. Just been to the shops. Having my hair cut at there. Drinking a lovely glass of juice. It's all just TOO MUCH INFORMATION. According to those polled, if this sounds like you then you can consider yourself one of the most annoying people on Facebook.

So what this mean to Social media? Should we start to remove friends who all day irritate us or should we just ignore their results and forget about them. I'd love to hear your opinions.
