People Share Their Social Media Horror Stories

– Sometimes mysterious, sometimes painful, almost always embarrassing. Take heed of this warning. These stories of my
coworkers will put fear in your heart and may make
you never use Facebook again. These are social media horror stories. – My name is Auri. I’m 26, and I had a traumatic social media occurrence just this last weekend. I have a friend that thought me and her roommate would be cute. She sent me his Instagram story. It was a nice Instagram story, it’s like him playing the guitar, and I responded to her nice vibe but not super into the face. What I didn’t realize is that I had actually direct
messaged him that and not her. I was like, “oh damn!” Like, I can’t believe I said that to him. I was like backpedaling, and I was like, “Oh sorry,
didn’t mean to send that.” “You have a great face,” and then he responded, “Ha! Thanks?” I feel like this was a good lesson to be really sure that
you’re sending the message to who you think you’re sending it to. (soft piano music) – When I was in college a few years ago, I went to New York City to visit a friend, and we went out to a club,
and we were drinking, and then we came back
to my friend’s place, and I was very, very drunk, and I decided that it
would be a great idea to send someone a dick pic. So I took a picture of my penis, and I think I’m sending it to this person. So I went to bed, and I woke up to realize that this picture didn’t go to the person I sent it to. It went to my story on Snapchat. I deleted the picture immediately. I looked at how many people saw it, and it was only like 30-something views and like two screenshots. I was in the east coast,
which is a few hours ahead, so when I posted the picture,
all my friends were asleep, and when I deleted it they
were probably still asleep. I don’t know who screenshot it. I deleted it right away, but whoever did screenshot it, you’re a garbage person, and ever since there’s no
naked pictures of my anywhere. I don’t send them, I don’t
mail them, I don’t email them. I was just drunk and I felt adventurous, and lesson learned. Never again. – So my social media horror
story comes from college. In fact, the last day of college. I wanted to celebrate my last
paper of my college career. So I hold out my paper like this, I take a photo of it from back here and post that photo to Instagram. Being the senioritis, spring
quarter senior that I was, I decided to take a
creative writing class, and so I decided to make
a really creative story for my final story for that class, and that was quite risque, and I get right into it on the first page. I uploaded this photo to
Instagram thinking nothing of it; people would just see a
paper with text on it, then the comments start flooding in about how interesting my story is. To give you an idea of what
was on that first page, I’d just like to read
you a couple of excepts. “AJ was stressed out; however,” “he could feel his dick start to harden.” “With his left hand, he
fiddled with the buckle” “on his belt while simultaneously” “craning his right hand
to type” “into the browser’s address bar.” I did write a story
about a guy watching porn and then artificial
intelligence coming from it, and I had to explain why I had a sudden fascination
with sex things. (soft string music)

  1. Auri, the lesson was always think what if this person I'm talking about were to see what I am saying to their friend….think about that when you go to write about them and be courteous and kind, just in case.

  2. I thought this would stories about how Social media ruined these people lives, but NOPE! It's classic buzzfeed. Shallow and meaningless.

  3. I was in a group chat with these girls and there was this one girl I didn't like then there was a new group chat made and I ranted about that girl but it turns out the girl I was ranting to was the girl I hate but she changed her acc

  4. The last guy said he wrote that smut paper for a class in college? TF?!!! Was he not embarrassed that his teacher was gonna have to read it?

  5. I once sent a nude photo to the boy I talked to, after a year or so passed he sent me that photo and said "If you do not come to my home, I will send it to everyone" yes it was terrible in this case but what is really important isss; it was not me seeing this message it was my boyfriend! and my other friends too cuz i was in the kitchen….. they saw my naked photograph too ofcourse. it was very embarrassing, meanwhile my boyfriend beat the bastard so didnt wonder the problem solved… and I told my friends that I wasnt the one on the photo. I think they believed, but my boyfriend knew everything… u know

  6. Auri, I think it would be a good idea to learn if they're a innocent person who hasn't harmed you, and you have nothing nice to say to them, you should say anything at all.

  7. 2:11 I don't think you can call someone garbage when you publically post a picture. Even if it was a mistake, you should never text people while drunk.

  8. If you keep making these, I will keep watching them. Lol I loved this video. The dramatics of the editing made it. 👽❤️

  9. So, while we were visiting my husband's family. My sister in law gets this invite to be a friend of this person on Facebook who she has never met. This girl that says thr girl claims that she knows her so she asked my husband is this girl looks familiar because he knows some of the people she's friends with. We ask a whole bunch of people and no one seems to know who she is so we decide to try to start cat fishing and tried to look up her picture see if we can Google search it to figure out who she is. Because it totally looked like a cat fish page she had hardly any pictures with anybody else she was only 10 people's friends and even the posts that she has posted to her page seemed very fake, but in this time frame we find out that supposedly this girl got in a car accident that day and died. But at this point we still don't know who she is or even if she's a real person. We are thinking at this point oh my gosh if she is a real person this is terrible someone needs to know who she is and what happened. So we continue to try to figure out who this person is and in the process my husband by accident tags me and her photo to then in fact have her cousin who supposedly took over her Facebook page starts attacking my sister-in-law saying is this a game is this funny to you my cousin just died in a car accident why are you tagging your random relatives in this picture. We still to this day don't know if this girl was real or not. So either this was just a very funny story that we got out of all this or we're pretty crapy people. So note to self watch out for the tag button, and be way more cautious when you're trying to snap a pic to be able to Google image search it.
