I know the easiest thing that I could do is to delete it but instagram is what everyone uses. Before I didn't have one and I felt lost and confused since everyone else was connected on there. I finally got one and ended up getting 23 followers from following people. What makes me sad is the fact that your follower ratio and amount of followers and likes kinda determines your popularness in the real world and online (how much people like you). At first I didn't care and I didn't use instagram a lot anyway but now I do after realizing a few things and getting certain comments. One thing that happend is that my friend that I grew up with unfollowed me on everything because I wasn't as popular as her (i guess I ruined her image?) another thing is that my crush didn't follow me back even though I would talk to him on kik and he followed strangers (but those were mostly hot teenagers). When I finally commented on one of his pictures he chose that moment to embaress me (I felt so inferior then and still do now and I kept over thinking that to the point where I cried in school today). My friend also noticed the amount of followers that I had and said "you think you're so cool but you only have 23 followers when I have 10,000" she meant that in a teasing way though but it still stung. I'm also not that popular in school and sometimes I'm by myself or sit at lunch by myself. I only have 6 people that I can call a friend at this school, but they all have other friends that they talk to more then me, I'm usually that person that is awkwardly standi ng near a group of people since I'm not friends with anyone but one person (who didn't introduce me btw). I also have so much time on my hands that it saddens me (as in no one wanting to hang out). At my old school I had really close friends but I moved and one of them thinks that she's too popular for us. I overthinked all of this during the day and it made me realize how lame I was.

That might be the case in high school, but the rest of the world doesn't give two shits how many people follow you on Instagram.2

I use Instagram and a lot of my friends use Instagram... but i'm 22 and just graduated college. yeah, Instagram is very popular with our generation but high schoolers use it differently than college students & young adults. When you're older, no one cares. You post if you feel like it & if you have something to post about. You do whatever makes you happy.
you are taking it too seriously (bc your friends/peers are taking it too seriously). If it isn't Instagram, its Twitter or Facebook or your relationship status or whether you have a certain brand shoe or whatever. high schoolers care way too much about popularity and will use whatever they can to put others down.1
