This is what 8 million Instagram followers does to your notifications


I’ve always wondered what it’d be like to have hundreds of thousands of millions of followers on Instagram, and how it would feel to receive notifications from all of them. Researchers say we’re addicted to those love pings because they basically give us a straight shot of dopamine. But what if you had, literally, thousands of notifications rolling in after every post? Would you OD?

Demy de Zeeuw, who runs soccer-focused Instagram account @433, answered that exact question with a Facebook video posted a couple days ago. Go ahead, live the nightmare.

Miraculously, his phone didn’t explode or even lock up. Now, just imagine Kim Kardashian’s notifications. She has 57.5 million followers.
