    The more a I bragged and showed off on Facebook when I was a teen, the more cripplingly insecure and unhappy I was. I later had to deactivate and go on anti depressants, but my pictures showed me having the time of my life. (Little did anyone know, I was self medicating with alcohol and when those pictures were taken I was on a high from the drink, but my mood would plummet the next morning)

    I honestly don't know but you can't really judge someone's life from Facebook.  If they are lonely with no friends or anyone who likes them it's not like they will advertise that.  It's different from the real, physical world in which people no doubt treat them differently and know who they are. This could be insecurity, a need to look better/happier than they are, we don't know.  Maybe their lives really ARE this great and they are proud of that and there is nothing wrong with that.  On the contrary, the ones who act as if they can do no wrong often are the ones with the most to hide.

    They do it because they think it would inspire other people to live, to travel, to try new things and so on.

    They may be one with a few friends and like to show the world what they do.For some it can be jealousy.
