Ramos killed 19 children and 2 of their teachers in the mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Texas on Tuesday.
The 18-year-old reportedly used the social networking app Yubo, where users can create video live streams with up to 10 friends.
Photos from an account allegedly belonging to Ramos reveal the teen wanted fame similar to the docuseries Don't F*** With Cats.
The source told The Sun that Ramos had compared himself to the Netflix show, a true-crime docuseries where a group of internet sleuths launched a manhunt for Canadian actor Luka Magnotta back in 2010.
Magnotta, real name Eric Clinton Kirk Newman, gained online infamy after sharing a graphic video of himself killing two kittens.
The series follows Magnotta's acts of animal cruelty, ultimately leading to the 2012 murder of a Chinese international student, Jun Lin.
As with the other acts of violence, Magnotta uploaded a video of the murder to the internet.

According to the Yubo user, Ramos said he "wanted his name out there like that."
The teen shared some screenshots that she had managed to take from Ramos’s profile on the app with The Sun – but thinks recordings may exist somewhere.
She said that she was keen for people to know how much information people on the app had about him.
“The whole reason for me sharing this is because the community on Yubo saw how little information anyone had on him and we realized just how much we knew about him,” she said.
“I have messages from him from early this year, he was around us all for a long time.
“There [are] sides to Yubo, different communities where everyone is familiar by name and everyone is mutual friends with each other. We all knew him.
“We just never thought to record the things he said as they were being said. As it’s a live-streaming app, you cannot look up old lives or watch old lives. Everything is in the moment.
“The moment the shooting became news, there was a live made with over 200 people pulling information from everyone to pass along to police.”
Ramos also allegedly shared his plans with a 15-year-old girl from Germany whom he met on the platform just days before the shooting that killed 21 people.
The girl, who is going by the nickname Cece, told the New York Times she met Ramos online about two weeks before he carried out the shooting that left 19 students and two teachers dead and more than a dozen others injured.
Cece claims Ramos revealed that he recently purchased a rifle and rounds of ammunition via video call in the days leading up to the May 24 shooting.
The two allegedly spoke the morning of the shooting, just over an hour before Ramos began his attack. During that call, Cece claims Ramos showed her his all-black outfit.
“Ima [sic] do something to her rn,” he wrote to Cece, claiming to have been waiting for his grandmother.
Then, minutes later, Ramos sent another text: “I just shot my grandma in her head,” followed by: “Ima go shoot up a [sic] elementary school rn.”
Cece told the Times that while she read the messages when Ramos sent them, she wasn't sure whether to believe him. Then, hours later upon seeing the news, she says she contacted US authorities.
“Maybe I could’ve changed the outcome,” Cece told the Times.
“I just could never guess that he’d actually do this.”
The messages were reportedly exchanged via Facebook.
Meta Communications Director Andy Stone said the messages that Abbott described were private one-to-one text messages that were discovered after the tragedy occurred.
The Sun reached out to Yubo for comment and received a statement from the social network's press team.
