"The allure of fame, and the excitement of the attention, it's almost like it's intoxicating," N.G. Berrill, an executive director of the New York Center for Neuropsychology and Forensic Behavioral Science explained. "They're willing to foolishly sacrifice their freedom in order to obtain the attention and cause a commotion."
Whatever the case, the trend doesn't seem to be slowing down. Below, eight of the most chilling Facebook confessions.
