Facebook and Twitter users who boast about how much they have exercised are the annoying social networkers, according to a survey from Sweatband.com.

But closely behind on the list of most irritating social media users are:

"meal-sharers"

"attention-seekers"

"Checker-inners"

 1,793 social network users were surveyed and 52% says they are using Facebook and Twitter less due to annoying status updates, while 38% quit them completely for the same reason.

Facebook and Twitter users who regularly post about their children's daily lives also ranked highly on the list, along with those who send gaming requests.

However, a quarter of those questioned admitted to irritating their own followers with their updates.
