If you’re trying to fill the void in your life left from the property porn of Cribs, the party porn of My Super Sweet Sixteen, and what was probably the best reality TV programme ever about vacuous teen wealth even though it only aired for one series, Rich Girls, then my I direct you to the eye-popping Rich Kids Of Instagram, a Tumblr that gathers young displays of ridiculous wealth from Instagram and posts them in one handy place.

You know, just your average young person’s stuff like running up a 100k+ bill at Nikki Beach:

Or casually displaying one’s gold-plated AK47 on one’s shades ‘n’ watches table:

Makes your ‘look! There’s a heart on the top of my latte’ twitpic look slightly inferior, right?

Unfortunately for the Rich Kids Of Instagram, such online over-sharing of wealth actually makes them targets for robbery, as Jezebel reports. Bloomberg talks about Alexa Dell (daughter of the computer dude) and her slightly too transparent social networking ways. And Forbes expands on the idea that totally loaded kids shouldn’t be Tweeting, updating their FB status constantly and telling FourSquare where they’re at.

But before rich kids leave the internet forever, enjoy the head-shaking pictorial of how the other half lives and isn’t afraid to share. For now.
