What’s your social media pet peeve?

David SparkWith everything we love about social media, there’s always still something to complain about. Even at South by Southwest Interactive, where social media is the flavor du jour, I was able to find plenty of people willing to tell me what really annoys them about social networking.

At the Mashable House Party at Buffalo Billiards last week, I simply asked people, “What’s your social media pet peeve?” Above, in this 1 minute 49 second video, are their answers.

  1. Mine is how Social Media has hijacked what I thought was a music festival, SXSW, but apparently now is a marketing festival. Can you buy $40 Pinterest T-shirts there?

  2. David, I think I've got too many that I lost count ( laughs ). I'll just have to start with the most annoying of them all: Slamming me with promotional messages without even bothering to say 'hello'… or not checking my social profile to address me as a 'he' ( not she, ma'm and the likes ).
