Model Loses It On Instagram Followers -- You'll Never Guess Why!

Australian model Cassi Van Den Dungen may have lost her marbles. Just a little. The 2009 runner up on Australia's Next Top Model went on a very public rant shaming her 9,750 Instagram followers. She uploaded a post to her account and was more than disappointed when it didn't get the likes she thought it deserved. The original post received only 14 likes, the lowest amount she has ever had. Here's what she had to say: elite-daily-model1 She's not wrong, adventures are fun but losing your cool like that is just, well, uncool. [bctt tweet="Temper tantrum or an indication of a bigger social problem?"] The post, of course, has now gone viral which has put Cassi in swift backtrack mode! First came this post: jack Then, there was an awkward explanation of her Facebook page: casi See, people, she didn't mean you -- unless, you don't like fun or something! The irony of this entire thing is that the post now has a few hundred likes. No such thing as bad publicity, right? model Bizarre. Social media seems to speak directly to our self absorbed and narcissistic sides and this story just hammers that home. Perhaps people just didn't find her post all that interesting. I love new adventures but I also would likely have scrolled right on by. Should I (or anyone else) be chastised for this?  Is this what we have come to? Are we so attached to our social media popularity that we become distressed when something doesn't go over the way we believe it should? Have we tied our lives and our value to 'likes' from complete strangers? Have we forgotten that the real and meaning interactions take place in the real world? Those new adventures and that fun Cassi seems so intent on celebrating don't happen on Instagram. What do you think of this story? Do you think this is an example of an immature temper tantrum or does it speak to a bigger, more complicated attachment to our social media accounts?
