Navigating the tricky world of social media can be like walking through a field full of landmines. One false move and BOOM, you feel like a total moron and you have to hang your head in shame.
Take a look at these social media fails and say a prayer for these poor souls…

Sometimes ure having a good day & sometimes u accidentally like a 4 yr old Instagram post of the ex girlfriend of a guy u went on 2 dates w/

2. Trying not to be a dick.
I’m starting a petition to stop putting Instagram polls to the right of the screen where people click through stories so I stop accidentally clicking the option that makes me look like a dick?

3. Were you…drunk?
In college I tried to stalk my boyfriend’s ex-girlfriend on Facebook but accidentally made her name my status instead so don’t tell me I’ve never been through anything

4. I’ve often wondered this, too.
If I accidentally like someone's old Instagram and quickly unlike it do they still get the notification
asking for a friend

5. The day after…
sometimes after drinking i start thinking i have The Fear but then i remember that time my husband's ex sent me a clearly accidental friend request late one night while twisted and presumably fb stalking me and i realise that how i feel is nothing to what she felt the day after

6. Definitely changes the meaning.
Do you ever tweet something and accidentally add a wrong emoji? Because I just did that with ? and that really changes the mood of it all.

7. Whoo, that was close!
When you realize you accidentally posted the pic as Story instead of DMing and delete it just in time !!!! pic.twitter.com/vMk8dqVAjq

8. Can I have that back, please?
Our greatest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our greatest fear is that we accidentally venmo a stranger our portion of the rent

9. Happy Buttday!
I accidentally posted Happy Buttday instead of Happy Birthday on a Facebook friend's wall.
Nope, not going to fix that.

10. That’s really bad.
Accidentally tagged myself on a picture of my ex boyfriends new baby.

11. You did it!
Accidentally connected my Fitbit account to Facebook and now everyone knows I only walked 13 steps yesterday.

12. You blew it!
I just accidentally sent a snapchat to someone I haven't talked to in forever instead of adding it to my snapchat story

13. Time flies…
I did that thing where you look through someone’s Instagram and accidentally like an old photo it was from only like a month ago but a month is like five years in tru millennial online hours

14. I really miss you…
I hate accidently dming someone a video that I meant to dm myself for later & I have to either tell them the truth or pretend it was on purpose & send "haha miss u" after bc there's no way I'm letting the guy i liked for 2 weeks in hs find out i send videos to myself like a loser
