Disclaimer: A couple of years ago I wrote a post about digital influencers, though it sparked anger on a couple of them that reversed it on my state of mind (whatever), I just want to warn anyone and everyone before hand that this post is about no specific Instagram user, so hold down your horses!
I will go straight into the subject and point out several things I have come to notice on IG without fully grasping its meaning/point.
1- Everyone is a self- proclaimed public figure. What? Why? How? and what do you do in life Mr?Miss?Mrs?? Ok, Chill people… next
2- “Watch this space”. I am watching it. I follow you remember? I even turned the notifications on (again, remember that spam roll you went on to make us follow you religiously…) I am watching your space, you’d better post something relevant or else your space will be void of my watching..
3- The InstaStory/ Snapchat retro glasses. Seriously, go buy a pair please and enough with the fake plastered one..
4- Animalistic instincts? Enough with the deer/dog and now a new specie up and going around your head, although I see the resemblance with the real you (for most). Just enough already..
5- Customized hashtags anyone #Xloves, #Ylisting, #Ztravels . I don’t see the point as hashtags are considered to be a shortcut into finding a niche from around the world in one place blabla yet when you click on these specific customized nonsense, you sense that its the person who has created them living that bubble in his head.
6- To those who post rarely yet when abroad > You traveled. Great. Why are we going to endure the spam that comes with it on our feed. We got it you are in #XTravel, #YinDubai .. oh look we infiltrated the above point here. You traveled, thats great, go enjoy your destination instead of it online, fully edited as well.
7- Unnecessary comments such as “I love you” “Miss you”. From the looks of your social (media) life you were together two days ago. WTF? lucky you #Blessed #FriendshipGoals
8- The new trend > Live videos. Take a chill pill, or at least go live doing something interesting.
9- InstaStory dilemma. Its supposed to be a story, hence not a one picture posting. That’s what an IG profile is all about my dear.
10- Those with two profiles > one public and one private for friends and family. I wonder what is posted in the private one when all is already in the open in the public one? One of those mysteries, you don’t say…
11- The dedication to fans post celebrating Xk followers. Should we pat you on the back for the workload done? or the internet card in your wallet?
12- Those accounts with only selfies and quotes as captions. You, sweetheart, are unfollowed pronto.
13- Quotes and only quotes. You know there are specialized IG profiles for that. At least, implement what you are preaching sister.
14- Oh wait, I am done… Do you have any other points that puzzle you about Instagram ?
please do share it with me… and I hope that no one took this too seriously to the point of bashing me with comments…
Have a great week everyone and stay dry from all that rain!!!
ps: this nice featured pictured was taken randomly from the www when using a specific hashtag for exploration…. no way!!!!
