I'm addicted to Instagram. Well, that's not much of a confession these days.
Correction. I'm addicted to Instagram comments. Hmm, that's a little odd.
To be specific, I'm addicted to the hating-type comments and commenting fights people get into over a celebrity/pseudo-celebrity's post on Instagram. Okay, this woman needs therapy.
It's mostly entertaining. It's astounding how personally invested people get with a celebrity's life, which social media platforms like Instagram and Twitter give us an unclose and personal look at daily or whenever they update. And I find it hilarious how people take the time to post such hateful comments on someone's photo and then others find it necessary to defend that person as if they were best friends, resulting a 1,000+ comment love/hate fest. Can't you all just judge and obsess silently like the rest of us (somewhat) normal people? And when did people get so damn mean? It's not like your comments are getting lost in the webs of the internet, never to be seen again. These celebrities get that same little symbol over their heart tab just like the rest of us. I can't imagine opening up Instagram and reading some of those comments.
Moral of the story: people are despicable. Just kidding. The moral is that I need to find a much better use of my time. For real.
I can't be the only one with a (not so) slightly strange habit on social media. Care to share a few of yours?
