Teen Girls and Harsh Realities of Online Popularity
This article from TIME focuses on a survey by the social network We Heart It, delves into the ways teen girls gauge popularity and how to work way into online popularity. Some of the more intriguing rules that the survey uncovered include: 

  1. Don’t serial post. (“You only want to post one Instagram a day.”)
  2. If you do post multiple things per day, they’d better be amazing. (“You can post multiple tweets a day, but they can’t be stupid or not interesting.”)
  3. If you game the system, don’t get caught. (“She [my friend] probably has 20 fake accounts where she goes and likes her own pictures.”)
