Most of the social media sites require users to fill a bio, which defines the identity of the person. Initial social media interactions are usually based on the user’s profile. In a bid to stand out from the crowd, most people use fancy words which end up making them look cliché and unoriginal. Here are some of the most overused words on social media bios:
Definition: One who finds the contents of someone else’s mind to be their most attractive attribute, above and before their physical characteristics.
The word itself is a powerful statement against the hookup culture. But, now the word is so mainstream due to its overuse on social media and dating apps.
Definition: A deep uncontrollable desire to hit the road and travel, by whatever means, to explore and enjoy the world.
The word is so overused by people who love to show off their journeys to the world. Instagram is filled with users who frequently use the hashtag #wanderlust to flaunt their pictures. No matter how near or far you go, you’re a wanderlust if you click innumerable selfies!
Definition: Someone who thinks, dreams and lives for food.

Feminism in social media is no more a revolutionary idea. The word is inappropriately used by majority of social media users just to sound cool without understanding the ethos of feminism.

Definition: One who moves around or travels freely without ties holding them back.
