Be aware of the fact that not every praise or applaud can be genuine. There is foreign interest in everyone and that's quite human, I think. Because, what each person faces is unique to him and always appear important for his own survival.
It's your own responsibility to understand and estimate people, especially those who praise or applaud you. Nevertheless, as long as you are not getting carried away with all that praise, it does not matter. But being so is very difficult practically, not impossible though!
