Birthday collages on Instagram are elaborate public tributes, filled with inside jokes, short videos, and pictures of memories you may not have been a part of. I’ve loved you the longest edge to these birthday posts,” one parent told me.Collages that document the intensity or length of a relationship are a chance to celebrate a friend – or prove just how close you are to the birthday girl.As a Public Barometer of Popularity Instagram lets you tag your friends to announce that you’ve posted a new photo of them.Girls do the app one better: they take photos of scenes where no person is present – say, a sunset — but still tag people they love and add gushing comments. But girls also do it because the number of tags you get is a public sign of your popularity.It’s a thrill to be featured on the banner that any visitor to the page will see — but not unusual to get deleted after a fight or bad day, in plain, humiliating sight of all your friends. Don’t tag the girl who is obviously in a picture, crop her out of it entirely, refuse to follow back the one who just tried to follow you, or simply post a photo a girl is not in.These are cryptic messages adults miss but which girls hear loud and clear.Secrecy is hardly new on Planet Girl: as many an eye-rolling boy will tell you, girls excel at eluding the prying questions of grown ups. From an early age, young women learn that to be a “good girl” they must be nice, avoid conflict and make friends with everyone.It’s an impossible ask (and one I’ve studied for over a decade) – so girls respond by taking their true feelings underground.
They can obsess over their friendships, monitoring social ups and downs in extreme detail.On Instagram, girls can project a persona they may not have time, or permission, to show off in the classroom: popular, social, sexy.Cultivating a certain look is so important that it’s common for girls to stage ‘photo shoots’ with each other as photographers to produce shots that stand out visually.That’s not what the app creators intended, of course, but it does make psychological sense: as they become preteens, research shows that girls’ confidence takes a nosedive.
Instagram, then, is a new way for girls to chase the feeling of being liked that eludes so many of them.
A girl may post an image of a party a friend wasn’t invited to, an intimate sleepover or night out at a concert.
