A teenager who was obsessed with social media took her own life after not getting enough ‘likes’ on her photos.
Chloe Davison, 19, hanged herself in her bedroom moments after she was active on social media, her mother told The Sun newspaper.
Chloe was an aspiring model whose self-esteem was closely linked to social media engagement with her photos.
“She was addicted to apps like Instagram and Snapchat,” said family friend Nick Coombs, who knew Chloe since she was a youngster.
Coombs, 55, said Chloe was addicted to selfies. “She would spend hours taking the perfect photo, but would delete it later if it didn’t get popular enough,” Coombs said.
Reynolds said Chloe struggled scholastically and she was a loner who rarely hung out with friends.
