Also known as sb or sympathy begging, sympathy baiting is a form of attention seeking in which a person or a group of people openly share something that could be considered sad in order to gain sympathy. A sympathy baiter does this on several questions. Sympathy baiting appears most on social media such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or Skype.
