Just because something is popular doesn’t mean that everyone likes it or even understands why so many people like it. These popular things range from products to things posted on social media and what everyone seems to enjoy watching on TV.

Reddit user BillOakley asked, “What is something that you just cannot understand the popularity of?” He didn’t give any examples of popular things that he doesn’t understand, but Reddit users were quick to add examples of their own.

Scroll down to discover some popular things not everyone likes or even understands. Perhaps you will agree with some of the items on this list, or perhaps you’ll be surprised to discover something that you love that not everyone understands.

  1. Influencers

    Reddit user chrisc1591 wrote:

    I don’t really understand influencers. Like why do they have such big followings? Why do people obsess over these random people who make their lives look better just for social media? I don’t get it

  2. “Toddlers and Tiaras”

    MangosHaveRights added:

    Toddlers and Tiaras. Why is there a bikini competition? Why are we forcing kids to participate in these terrible pageants just for the entertainment of adult viewers?

  3. Celebrities

    Vinny_Lam explained:

    Celebrity worship. I really don’t understand why people are so obsessed with celebrities to the point of following every single thing they do in their lives. What do people get out of idolizing some rich people who probably don’t even care about you?

  4. Couples on Social Media

    Androrockz shared:

    Couples wishing each other on social media on Anniversary/B’days, while they might be sitting next to each other..

  5. Expensive Clothes

    An example from Taxfraud777:

    Overly expensive luxury clothes

  6. Signs for Inside Your Home

    moxiepuzzler added:

    The signs people buy for their homes that say “EAT” “KITCHEN” “PANTRY” “LAUNDRY” “HOME”. Why!?!

  7. Lip Fillers

    meany_beany wrote:

    Lip fillers and injectables overall. Why does everyone want the same face all of a sudden?

  8. Politician Worship

    apbadogs shared:

    Politician worship. It is puzzling to me that people will show up at a political rally and scream like they are at a Rolling Stones concert. Not sure when this all started but it is very weird to me.

  9. “The Bachelor”

    Written by trevoraven:

    The Bachelor/The Bachelorette. I have no idea why the most forward-thinking and progressive people I know regularly tune in to literal objectification every week.

  10. Fake Fingernails

    Mortne added:

    Fake, long, pointy nails. They look like guinea pig’s feet or something from Lord of The Ring

  11. Royal Family

    TuffHunter wrote:

    Why anyone cares about the British Royal Family. They are just a bunch a rich people.

  12. Facebook

    iggycat shared:

    Facebook. I joined and could not understand the attraction. Also it is toxic and spreads misinformation.

  13. “Weird Filters on Selfies”

    mywifemademegetthis added:

    People using weird filters on their selfies, like freckles or dog ears. It looks like 2005 webcam effects. It’s not cute, it’s definitely not funny. It just looks bad.

  14. Night Clubs

    Renzokuken1987 explained:

    Night clubs. Loud, sticky, claustrophobic. You can’t talk, just drink and dance, which i’m awful at. After 30 mins I’m ready to leave, and I wouldn’t even enjoy it for that short period of time.I actually feel like I’ve missed out on something that sooo many people love, but you like what you like, and I HATE clubs!

  15. “Star Wars”

    TheCrunch13 wrote:

    Please don’t mass downvotes me for this but I have never understood the popularity of Star Wars. I think the movie were fine movies but I don’t get why people treat them like the best movies of all time
