Jessa Duggar, Jill Duggar and their respective partners have gone uncharacteristically quiet (or at least quieter) on social media, and it's likely not an accident.

Jessa, Jill, Ben and Derick

Typically staples of Twitter, Facebook and Instagram as well, Jessa Duggar, Jill Duggar, Ben Seewald and Derick Dillard have dialed it back in mid-October.

Could this indicate that the recent backlash over several of Jessa's recent postings have caused them all to scale back - possibly at father Jim Bob's urging?

Jessa hasn’t posted on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook since October 5, when she shared a link questioning if radiometric dating proves that the Earth is old.

That’s a long break for a usually daily social media user, who also sparked major criticism with her passionate comments on abortion and the Holocaust.

Jessa’s fiance has also stayed off social media since October 4, although Ben Seewald's father made more headlines for a blog post likening her critics to Hitler.

The married and less controversial Jill and Derick Dillard have also backed off significantly, posting only one benign snapshot apiece this month to date.

A teacher reportedly took his desire to prove a point about the risks of social media to new heights, shaming a 15-year-old student in epic fashion.

The instructor allegedly took it upon himself to cyber-stalk one particular teenage girl, find bikini pictures of her, and showing them to her classmates.

A hundred of her classmates. At a school assembly.

A Bikini Girl

That's right. A teacher went onto a student's Facebook page, grabbed a picture of her in a bikini, and then humiliated her with it in front of her peers.

The victim's mom has filed complaints. Shocking.

Her parents want justice from Eggbuckland Community College's head teacher, the board of governors, and England's Office for Standards in Education.

The mom said, "She's really upset and hurt and this has knocked her confidence, She's not the type of girl who likes attention like this ... she's a tomboy."

File this one under "most WTF Apple-related news since they crammed that U2 album down our throats:"

As you've probably heard, comedy legend Joan Rivers died earlier this month after complications from a routine surgical procedure.

But today - just over two weeks from the day that Rivers passed away - a timely post mysteriously popped up on her Facebook page.

  • Joan Rivers Photograph
  • Apple iPhone 6

Many fans were shocked - and no doubt a little disturbed - when Rivers' still-active account posted a photo of a an iPhone 4 along with a status update reading:

By her own admission, Miley Cyrus takes two things very often:

  1. Drugs.
  2. Selfies on Instagram.

Which of these two habits does the singer find more dangerous? She offered up that surprising answer when she sat down for Yahoo!’s “Sunday Night” chat this week.

"Do you know what hurts your brain? Googling yourself. You know what hurts your brain? Instagram," Miley, whose affection for marijuana is well known, said.

Let's face it. Some people just shouldn't use the Internet.

This list includes embarrassing parents, celebrities without PR agents to stop them from saying stupid things on Twitter, and anyone who thinks Justin Bieber's music is actually good.

And then there are the people who haven't quite figured out just how obnoxious they are when sharing on social media. People like this ...

The Does It All Mom
You know the type. She's waxing the car, shaving her legs, making organic, free range, Bento box lunches for five children, WHILE chairing the PTA ALL AT ONCE. And never chipping a nail.

"Just had a great workout! Now I'm going to juice a carrot! If you don't juice your carrots you'll die!" 

"It's Obama's fault the Steelers lost! THANKS, OBAMA!"

"My sweet little snookums dollbaby angel face just bought me lingerie and we're gonna get frisky later!"

Uhhhh....

If you're one of those people, well, don't be one of those people.

And if you KNOW one of those people, we feel sorry for you.

A Florida mom's Facebook status didn't go over so well with her son's preschool. In fact, it got the kid straight up expelled from Sonshine Christian Academy.

Ashley Habat was upset that the school didn't give her enough notice about picture day. She ranted about this in a private post ... but still tagged the school.

In the post in question, Habat asked:

“Why is it that every single day there is something new I dislike about Will's School? Are my standards really too high or are people working in the education field really just that ignorant.”

The next day she was reportedly told by school administrators that the school wouldn't be a good fit for her son, according to Jacksonville's WJXT-TV.

It's a universal truth readily accepted by smart people everywhere: some people just shouldn't have access to the Internet. At all. Not even a little bit.

Do not pass Go, do not collect a Facebook login. Seriously. 

Why? Look no further than these 31 examples and cringe:

5 O'Clock Somewhere
Drinking and driving is a really bad idea. Drinking and driving combined with taking a picture and posting to Facebook is even worse.

Another universal truth? Second (or third) hand mortification is REAL.

As in, wee are totally mortified for some of the people who have been caught committing the sin of gloriously and gratuitously oversharing on social media.

Check out these 31 TMI Facebook posts and be really, REALLY glad you're not one of these people. (Unless you ARE one of these people in which case, wow. Just wow.)

But wait! There's more!! People LOVE to fail on Facebook. Love, love, love it. Even if these folks' posts don't fall into the TMI category, they are legendary ...

While younger celebs have moved on Twitter, Instagram, and that wacky Snapchat, Vin Diesel is still kicking it old school and posting his nude photos on Facebook, where they won't disappear after 10 seconds.

Yes, Vinny D has quite the online following (he has so many likes he claims Facebook owes him "billions of dollars"), and he decided to reward his faithful female fans today with a revealing shower selfie.

Vin Diesel Nude Photo

So not only did he get to play the coolest role in Guardians of the Galaxy, Vin also apparently has a waterproof iPhone. If this dude isn't winning the summer of 2014, we don't know who is.

Naturally, the pic received about a bajillion comments within minutes - most of them from female fans who seem to approve of the view. But for our money, this shower shot is not the best thing Groot has posted online recently.

Celebrities aren't the only ones to practice random acts of kindness.

Earlier this month, Keith Kiel was walking down the aisle of a Florida Publix when he came across an employee named Gage Boucher and an older gentleman doing some shopping.

Kiel thought it was “neat” that Boucher had bent down to tie this stranger’s shoe and so he snapped a picture of the act and put it on Facebook.

Act of Kindness

“I figured people would resonate with this,” Kiel told Good Morning America, adding that he hoped the image would garner 100 Likes.

He was mistaken, however: since going live on August 9, the picture has received 200,000 Likes and been shared over 15,000 times.
