In April 2014, Zilla arrived at the airport with her heavy luggage in tow. But she couldn’t leave without sharing a photo bidding her friends and loved ones farewell on Facebook. Soon, she realized that her followers were happy, and maybe a bit jealous that she was jetting off on an amazing adventure. But no one really knew what was really happening in Zilla’s life.

Zilla had picked a great destination. Southeast Asia had everything from tropical rainforests to majestic temples, and even ruins. This was paradise! What person in their right mind could possibly turn their backs on an opportunity like this? It turns out, she couldn’t, or so everyone thought.

Zilla was having a lot of fun, but she took time to share a few photos of her trip as she traveled through Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia during her 5-week vacay. She took snaps in the blue waters of Asia’s beaches and the breathtaking skyline of Bangkok. She even snapped some photos of the mouth-watering local cuisine. But she didn’t realize this would spark so much backlash when she returned.

Her Facebook friends eagerly waited for Zilla’s next posts. She even created an album called “Thailand, the land of smiles.” It contained all sorts of amazing pics like the one where she was posing with a Buddhist monk in the temples of Bangkok. Her friends held their breaths until the next series of photos popped into her online albums, and each pic was better than the next. But was she over posting?

Do you take photos of your feet while lounging near the pool? Do you constantly check in with photo updates on social media when you’re on vacay? Well if you do then you’re probably one of many who are responsible of the ultimate crime of over posting, which some find extremely annoying. But is there a right way to do it?
