Watching Real-Time Instagram Notifications Pour In After 8-Million Follower Account Posts Something

January 13, 2016

This is a short video of Dutch soccer player Demy de Zeeuw's Instagram notifications after he posts a new piece of content to the sports themed account he runs (with 8 million followers). The likes and comments FLOOD in. I bet celebrities get a lot of validation from this. I get a lot of validation when my Instagram likes can't be counted on one hand. One day I'm going to get enough likes so that it doesn't just list everybody's name who likes it, it's just a number. How many is that, anyways? "Eleven." God that's intimidating. Maybe if I post somebody else's photo like it's mine? Maybe a butt or something? A lady's workout butt? Those always seem to be popular. Of course it might help if I had more than six followers. Maybe if everybody likes it twice. "You can't do that." Got it, so what you're saying is I need to make five more accounts. I'm not above that.

Keep going for the video.

When you post epic content on instagram.com/433 8 million followers, this is how your pushnotification will look like.. ☕󾇗

Thanks to Dave M, who always likes all his friends' photos then comes back the next day and unlikes them because he only kinda liked them, not LIKE-LIKED them.

  • Yeah, when anybody does anything to anything I do online I shriek and giggle and jump up and down excitedly. (By the way, let me know where to sign up for those ladybutt pictures, GW...)

    I think... I think you can shut that off...

    Oh, the simple pleasures of fame. A nice cappuccino and a lock screen that causes epilepsy.

  • How do you even use your phone with notifications coming in like that, holy crap.

  • Jenness

    That's what I thought, most phones slow down to a crawl with a tiny percentage of that activity.

    It is no 8 Million, it is 892,000. Jesus learn your numbers

  • Geekologie

    there, I tried to clarify in the article

    Actually, Demy de Zeeuw has 89.2k followers, which is 89,200... Probably best to take your own advice. However, the article's correct, it just missed out a big bit of info, it was for something he posted to 433, a sports instagram he posts to, which does have 8 million followers.

  • Jai Mico

    Plus it says - Demy de Zeeuw's Instagram notifications (he has 8 million followers)

  • simon austin

    It's his sports instagram (that's how he posts to it), they're his followers.
