Maybe this is why we love our BFFs IRL but get so annoyed with them on social media

We’ve all been there. We have a BFF we love IRL but who is so annoying on social media — and we don’t know what to do about it. Maybe the friend posts too many PDA photos with their bae, or maybe they use an excess of hashtags. Or perhaps you’re struck by severe secondhand embarrassment every time your friend posts a pic on social media of themselves after yoga, twisted into a pretzel and musing about their “self-love journey.”

Whatever the situation, it can be hard to reconcile the person you love IRL with the manufactured persona they broadcast online.
