I can't even imagine how vain and self-absorbed someone has to be to have an instagram account. These are the people you see in public constantly pointing their phone at themselves and making stupid faces. Don't you just fucking hate them?
it bothers me a lot, but at least they're happy about themselves
the people I really don't understand are the ones who put tons and tons of shit on these sites like Twitter and Instagram, and they get maybe ten followers.
obviously barely anyone gives a shit, so why even bother? I don't get it.
idk I got an instagram mainly so I could follow my friends when I was in hs
I still have it so I can follow alterhacker and Katya and like their pics. I don't have many posts but I should totes post more! :33
I never post selfies. I post photos ive taken, like these.
Why do you assume its always a vanity contest? Maybe they just like to store it all on the site rather than on the computer, that way it never needs to be backed up.
I bet you think Tumblr is exclusively feminism and fan girling too.
It seems like you have instinctive disgust for the masses and the "mass mind." If you're that way inclined, there are critiques out there that will make you feel less alone. Don't worry, you're not alone in feeling like you're drowning in a sea of hollow narcissistic shells. Look into
>Christopher Lasch: Culture of Narcissism
>Ortega y Gasset: Revolt of the Masses
>Possibly Jean Baudrillard: In the Shadow of Silent Majorities
Also look into modernist elitism, and tradtionalism
You're so forgiving when its an attractive bitch though.
>livejournal will never be THE social media site again
it kept a lot of the normies out because people usually posted unique original content
I can understand why attractive people take selfies but why do average (this is me being nice) looking people take so many selfies? Actually, I know why. It's because other stupid fucking normies will LIE and tell them how great they look. Normies really are terrible people.
It's just so goddamn vain that I can't stand them. How many fucking picture do you need of you making kissy faces in a lecture hall? 10 every single goddamn day? Jesus fukcing christ
I doubt everyone who owns a instagram account is vain and self-absorbed. I don't have one because I don't feel like showing off my shitty life and shitty possessions. I can see how someone with a nice life would wan't to show it off.
It is nothing but a vanity contest.
When I last went home to visit my family I was amazed at my younger brother.
My parents went to bed and I asked him if he wanted to watch a film or something, We put the film on and about 20 minutes in I looked over at him and he was holding his phone at this odd angle and was pulling some stupid 'puckered lips' face.
I asked him what the fuck he was doing and he said he was taking a picture to post. He was walking around the living room attempting to get the best lighting and shit. It was pathetic to watch.
These people take pictures of fucking nothing. Oh you took a picture of your utterly uninteresting dinner for the 40th time in a row? Oh and you've got 200+ pictures of you pulling duck face in random locations. Oh hey here's another 100 pictures of you in the same fucking nightclub doing nothing.
I accidentally made an Instagram account lel.
I posted a pic by mistake and got likes, as much I hate Stacie's and normies. I understand why they use it, the weird rush of getting a like makes you feel good. Especially if you haven't had a gf in 11 years and begin to lose hope.
I still don't use it though, its full of mix raced people talking about muh relationships.
I can see why lesser minds use it though; its their version of 4chan. Ask yourself this: who spends and invests more time, them in Instagram or you on 4chan?
>I accidentally clicked on a website
>I then accidentally clicked "Create account"
>I then accidentally Filled out the details needed
>I then accidentally went to upload a picture
You do know its a phone app?
It was installed on my phone and I went into the app so I could see if my email was being used (restored from iCloud after sister used my phone) of automatically had all my info on it and the sign up button is easy to press
The picture upload is one button and if you click your picture in the app it can upload it straight away.
Pls stop judging others before you experience their way; its far easier to gain an advantage once you've infiltrated
I still don't understand how you can accidentally do any of those things.
Are you sure you didn't just give into normie temptation and create one to try to revert out of Robot status...
>tfw Mirukawa is an attention whore who tries to give off an innocent qt vibe but you're still attracted to her.
instagram cut out the pretense of social media being about connecting with your friends and got straight to the point by making it about attention whoring and validation.
every girl i know with an instagram has dozens to hundreds of selfies and cherry picked pictures from their lives to demonstrate how smart, cool, funny, and interesting they are. these girls take pictures of themselves with full faces of makeup with flattering lighting and angles and post only the best parts of their lives, and then they get praise and attention as if this representation of them is accurate, and then they start to think that maybe they really are as awesome as people on the internet who dont know them believe they are based on their most attractive and interesting pictures.
for some reason it never occurs to them what they're doing; that they're giving innacurate representations of themselves and their lives - lying essentially - and using this to garner the admiration or desire of others
i see these two guys occasionally posted on /r9k/ and they are known for no reason. one was born rich and spends all of his money on guns and whores to feel more like a man and the other one was born tall and handsome and goes to the gym. most of the time if you post anything negative about them youre immediately accused of being jealous, but neither of these guys matter. i mean, yeah i would be taller and more handsome if i could, but i dont admire tall and handsome people, i admire who've had a meaningful impact on the world in some way.
i dont know, my who post is probably euphoric
I got a facebook because I'm a follower but when I first saw Instagram I knew it not only wasn't for me but that I would immediately think less of someone who posts on it regularly.
I don't want to sound like an edgelord but it's everything I dislike about my generation
Nope you're completely right bro. Human's need for validation has ended up with this toxic "look at me, compliment me" culture on the internet, as their vanity can spread to many eyes.
Lets be real here - you're ugly and get no attention. So you value things that have nothing to do with looks - because you have none of it to offer. But you know that you would not hold those views if you were born beautiful and treated differently while growing up.

The rest of his post is complete meme garbage except for the last parts but this is true
dude many photographers, athletes, businesses and the like have it now though.....>>26283624
roids are illegal and i don't have a doc that would be cool with it if they found out, i can't get money even with a degree..... gotten more rejection/eaten more static than a human being can take......
would spend it all on clothes/shoes/cosmetic medicine/.sugar baby anyway......
oh god these gymnasts remind me so much how i have an uber fetish for preppy southern belle types.....
>you dont participate in the normie social media circlejerk therefore youre ugly
>this is how normalfags justify their rampant narcissism on social media
nice meme dipshits. im not ugly and ive gotten my fair share of female attention
i almost posted this picture with the other post but i decided against it because i think faceposting is cancer for the same reason i think instagram is cancer, but here you go
>roids are illegal and i don't have a doc that would be cool with it if they found out
You're retarded, just go to a private endo and pay him to put you on TRT which is legal roids.
