No matter how hard you try, sometimes you do some things that make people dislike you almost immediately. While everyone tries their best to remain ‘likeable’ on social media, some activities are bound to make you disliked by people. The Independent studies traits and behaviour that make people hate you on social media. So, the next time you post a selfie on Facebook or Instagram, think again.

Researchers showed students two different videos of an actor's face. The actor would either show emotion or remain emotionless, while they watched funny or sad scenes from a movie. Students rated the emotive actor much higher in likeability.

A different study found that smiling made you more memorable, after meeting someone for the first time.
