Low self esteem + Photo & Video Sharing + Need for validation via likes = BAD BEHAVIOR
Endlessly scrolling past photoshopped images of skinny models & videos of supposed glamorous lifestyles can leave some users feeling less of themselves. Of course no one's life is actually the way they make it seem on their instagram, but users will go to extreme lengths to make it appear to be. All for a like and a follow. This makes for a high risk enviroment for someone seeking validation.
