A friend of mine (m/19) is, to use a modern turn of phrase, a bit of an attention whore. That means she shares, comments and posts every triviality of her life on a famous social networking site to generate as many likes as possible. There are far too many pointless posts. Among some of the better ones are: "yesterday I went shopping" or "just chilling tomorrow". When I visited her a few days ago, however, she made the fatal mistake of leaving the room and not taking her smartphone with her. Since she was already logged in, I quickly changed the privacy settings so that only she can see her posts and the rest of her friends are safe from it. Now she thinks that people are plotting against her, and what really annoys her is that she gets no attention for her posts. I just laugh into my fists. I hope that I will have the courage to tell her one day, but until now it is too hilarious. I'll keep as a silent as a grave.
