“Why Aren’t They Liking My Pic?” And Other Ways Instagram Proves We’re All A Little Crazy

July 31, 2014 ‐ By


Instagram is, by far, my favorite social media app. I love looking at pictures. You don’t have to have a story because you can create one. Or you can provide a bit more context or wit with the captions. It was already brilliant and then they added the 15 second video feature? Game changed. I love Instagram. And since I’m on it so much, I have a few observations about Instagram, and what our behavior on the app says about the state of our society. Can I share them with you all? Follow me.

    AGREE!!!! Whenever I show my IGless friends something, I’m like no you can’t make the pic bigger before you ended up accidently double clicking and showing that I’m lurking

    I don’t know about you, but I HATE WORDS ON INSTAGRAM!!! If I wanted to read, I would have been on FB or even Twitter! I like looking at pictures, not a thesis. Whew! I’m glad I got that off my chest!!!!

    Because those who do are a bit narcistic or insecure. Social media have exposed the human race as narcistic and insecure; lonely beings who crave for attention from anyone. Keep in mind that this goes for the general population, there are always exceptions.

    Instagram is the devil!!! Really though I couldn’t imagine taking so many pics a day…not for promoting or making money…but for likes?? Really??

    You’re not stalking someone if you accidentally like their picture. The definition of a stalker is someone who does things to intentionally make someone feel uncomfortable, kind of like harassment. They put their pictures up on a public arena just to get likes. I’m sure that they wouldn’t Care if you randomly liked their picture.

    I always feel a mixture of sadness and annoyance when I see someone begging a person to follow them, and it turns out to be a grown person… Like, where is your self-respect?!


    I WANT TO LICK YOU IN PERSON, my lady!!!!!!!!!!!

    I always find it funny when people like their own pics or on Facebook when they like their own status. It’s like we know you like it…you posted it. Lol. Not like a big deal, but it’s just funny.
