A Study Finds People Mainly Go Places to Get Likes on Their Photos


You might be able to get some Instagram likes if you post a selfie of you at home with a pizza watching TV on a Saturday night.  But if that’s the ONLY type of picture you ever post, those likes are going to dry up.



So, sadly, this makes sense.  A new study out of the University of Georgia found that 86% of people say they’re motivated to go places to get a “social return” . . . in other words, likes on their photos or videos on social media.



It’s not clear from the study if people ONLY go on trips because they want social media validation . . . but it’s definitely a GIGANTIC factor.
