The internet is an awesome place to find out new stuff and have a laugh, but as anyone who’s been on the internet for longer than their nan knows, there’s also a much more annoying side.
1. Farmville or Any Facebook Game Invite
It may not be as much of a problem as it used to be, but after setting up your mum’s new Facebook account, expect her to be sending you requests to join her on her farm on a daily basis.
2. Junk Mail and Spam Comments
Who writes spam?! None of it is particularly convincing, especially when in broken English from a Nigerian billionaire who needs me to send him even more money.
3. Setting a ‘Secure’ Password
Creating a password these days is a nightmare, it usually has to contain at least 8 characters, 2 uppercase, 4 special characters, no spaces, no names, 3 numbers and a batman symbol.
4. Pop-up Ads
Luckily, most sites these days aren’t as bad with their approach for advertising, but some still love those pop-ups, and we all know how infuriating they are.
5. Waiting For Videos To Buffer
The demand for streaming videos in 2014 is the highest it’s ever been, so when we can’t watch a video of a cat falling off a bed instantly, we tend to throw a hissy fit.
6. Internet Explorer
Quite possibly the best browser in the world… for downloading other browsers. If you’re still using IE, do yourself a favour and upgrade to another browser and see the web in a slightly less annoying way.
