Tired of Tinder? Had enough of Hinge? Fed up with Facebook Messenger? Sick to death of Snapchat? Well, you’re not the only one. Because the apps that are supposed to make our lives easier are actually a major source of irritation for millions of people all over the world.
According to one study by Statista, 45% of people with smartphones are seriously considering deleting at least one of their apps. And an increasing number of younger people are choosing ‘dumb’ phones over smartphones to break their social media or doom-scrolling addiction.
But here’s the ironic part.
Many of us like to use another popular app to complain about all those other apps that we hate so much.
In this case, that app is Twitter. But which apps do people tweet about the most? Which ones get the most negative mentions? And do some countries tend to hate certain types of apps more than others?
These are the questions that Electronics Hubs decided to answer in its latest study into our modern-day digital habits and trends.
Using geotagged Twitter data and sentiment tracking tool HuggingFace, Electronics Hub created several maps and charts showing which apps different countries hate the most.
There’s some bad news for legacy apps like Tinder, Facebook, and Netflix. As well as losing thousands of users every month, all three feature heavily in the most hated apps list.
Facebook Messenger was the most hated app in 33 countries, including Australia and the Philippines. Tinder is hated more than any other dating app in 29 countries. People in 17 countries hate Netflix more than all the other streaming platforms.
And social media users in 25 countries used Twitter to express their opinion that Twitter is the worst app on the planet. Stuff like this can only happen in the 21st century.
