In the last two weeks, we have seen attention grabbing reach an all new low. Kim Kardashian’s attempt to break the internet failed as geeks are still playing World of Warcraft and you are PROBABLY downloading something off PirateBay right now.


If you are older than 14, you were probably thinking ‘what an attention seeking $!@&”£$‘. Well, the truth is… and to quote Kim’s husband ‘We all self-conscious, I’m just the first to admit it‘. There is nothing wrong with posting pictures online for a few likes. The problem begins when it begins to take over your life and morals go out the window after decency. We all know ‘someone’ who craves attention on social media but how do you know it is not you? Here are five signs to check if you are social media whore.

1. You’re in denial about being an attention whore on social media.

Your friends and a few others have begun to voice their opinions about your attention seeking ways. You ignore them, believing it is perfectly normal to conduct yourself in such a manner. Remember, the first step in the right direction is to admit that you have a problem. Upload more than two selfies today?

2. You question your friends’ loyalty.

Having a casual conversation with your friends, you realise it would be the perfect time to ask them why didn’t they comment on your facebook picture or like your photo on Instagram, because that’s what REAL friends do.

3. Buying Followers (literally).

This has to be the most pathetic way to get noticed. Being able to brag about the fact that you have 10,000 twitter followers in a conversation must be one of the greatest feelings the world has to offer. Just don’t tell them that they can get them too for about £39.99.

4. You take more half naked pictures than Rihanna.

We get it. You want to be like your friend who can simply smile and receive over 50 likes on Instagram and Facebook in less than 15 minutes, but that approach proves to no avail for you. Instead, you must post pictures of your breasts that so happenly are trying to escape their nests, or you show off your six pack from multiple angles in the infamous “just got in from a great workout” photo. If these photos do not receive the attention you anticipated, you delete them and head back to the drawing board to figure out why the concept of “sex sells” isn’t working for you.

5. If you don’t get enough likes, you apply a filter and upload it again.

So you were aiming for 500 likes and only got 214. Don’t worry as the answer is just a few swipes away. Applying different filters and uploading the same picture up for further likes screams “LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOK AT ME”. It is pretty low but the funny thing is we have all probably done this at least once.
