Very true and it's so annoying undecided
'Am' is an auxilliary verb...it can't start a sentence while 'I'm' is the shorter form for or an abbreviation of 'I am'.
I wonder why most pple throw the 'I' away.
For example: 'I am eating' shouldn't be 'am eating' cos it wouldn't make sense if u shorten 'she is eating' to 'is eating' cheesy

Shey? For your mind?! You should have mentioned few....... They use that probably coz it's on social media which is not a formal writing.

Since lalasticlala has deemed it fit to throw this in front page, I'm expecting him to come and tell us the difference.

This is actually very true. But IMO,I don't think its peculiar to Nigerians. Others commit the same error too.
