    I never cease to be amazed at how computers and the net work. I signed up to communicate with someone on Instagram, but they took something I said the wrong way. I thought, no problem ill just create a new Instagram identity and rejoin the group and avoid my prior dumb misstatement. I even created and signed in using my new identity using a VPN. Well I got accepted in, but in the comment section are the same comments and old name that got me in trouble in the first place. How the hell did Instagram know I was the SAME PERSON? Its actually very disconcerting! I am not trying to be dishonest, but I want a second chance with this individual. Please help.

    Social media isn't real; don't let it dictate your life.

    They track you using your IP address I think.

    I used a VPN to sign up instagram the second time. I used CCLEAN before i did it. I used a totally separate email. How did Instagram know I was the same person? This should not have happened.

    So you're attempting to circumvent the system?

    Yes, you are.

    Why? Because Instagram keeps creepy people like you from harassing others?

    Yeah this is a social issue and not a technical one. Going to lock.

    Social media should be nothing more than a mild social distraction. If it's dictating your social interactions then you've got some things to reevaluate.
