A lot of it is staged; very few photos are taken “in the moment”. And these extended photo sessions can be a bit of a headache for locals as well as other tourists.

The author of the post hit the nail on the head when he said that everyone has a right to be there and take pictures. But so-called “Instagram wannabe models” have “no more rights than anyone else.”

They’ve been actively dominating tourist spots for their social media photoshoots, so a redditor decided to have some fun and shut them down. The post got a lot of response from people and went viral. At the time of writing, it has collected 21.8 thousand. upvotes because other editors have shared similar experiences with invasive influencers.

There are various reasons why people want to take amazing photos to post on their social media accounts. Some travel bloggers actually get paid for it. Others do it because they really enjoy traveling. Others still aim to impress their fans and build an even bigger online following. Humans are social animals and they like to be adored, respected and looked up to.

As a result, some individuals spend a lot of time creating their online personas. However, many people go to unhealthy extremes. They want to be seen as extremely attractive. But often, no matter how much attention you get, it’s never enough. So they can take Photoshopping to the extreme.

As the moderators of the r/Instagramreality subreddit explained earlier Boring Panda that there is a the universal demand to be lovedyou want to feel like you belong.

“The harsh and terrifying truth for everyone is that the more you resemble what the people around you find universally attractive, the more likely you are to have access to those things in your life,” they previously said.

“So you start thinking, ‘Well, what do I have to change about myself to be right?’ How to become more attractive?’ Based on magazine covers and numerous Instagram Explore pages, this image is of a tall, long-haired, fair-skinned woman with a slim but hourglass figure—oh, and don’t forget, a perfect butt. Here are some photo editing apps that give you the chance to finally be her. Even if it’s just online.”

Meanwhile, during another interview, Bored Panda talked about addiction to social networks with Nuno Albuquerque, Head of Treatment at UK Addiction Treatment Group

“A person can be addicted to anything, but they are only addicted if what they are using has taken over their life and that they as individuals have lost the power of choice, meaning they cannot, no matter how much they want to, stop ‘using’. It’s the effect of addiction, it robs the individual of the ability to stop,” he explained to us.

“Even if that person is aware of the negative physical, psychological or financial consequences, they still cannot stop. It is very important not to use the word “addiction” lightly; if a person is addicted, they need professional help and support.”

During the Covid-19 pandemic, people tended to spend more time on social media while they were locked down. “Some people have turned to social media during the lockdown to keep in touch with others, which is really important and a really healthy approach.” It starts to negatively affect a person when being on social media completely consumes them and they no longer want to be in their real ‘offline’ day,” a mental health expert told us.
