It’s not a secret people like attention for various reasons. It boosts their egos, helps promote their business and tell the compelling stories of their lives. Social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram turned even the most modest people into crazy attention seekers.

Some of them create beautiful works of art, go travelling to unusual places, or give beauty advice, but there are also those people who would do none of that. They would rather shock their followers with something unspeakable or utterly foolish like hanging from the edge of a skyscraper building with no support. Why? Well, just because they can!

And, sadly enough, all these horrible things do draw lots of attention, although for entirely different reasons. Here’s a list of people doing mind-bending things to become Facebook and Instagram stars. Warning! You might lose faith in humanity after this.
