While some people who display this kind of behavior are genuinely just insecure, according to Dr.George Simon, PhD of "Ask The Psych," others may do it to manipulate others into paying them recognition. The following is a collection of people who went out looking for praise on the internet but forgot that nobody is safe in the web universe. Scroll through these bold photos and captions and read the brutal responses they received and don't forget to upvote your faves!
