Instagram will restrict weight-loss and detox post .
Wow! Sounds good ? They won’t allow minors to see these advertisements!
How about adds that promote healthy diets or positive weight loss strategies or maybe rather then running adds at all , maybe Instagram could run some positive messages in the sponsored slots . I for one , will not be fooled by Mark Zuckerberg’s greed . The money train will keep on rolling right into his vault. I think Facebook and the Instagrams of the world are a great platform to do good . But , it’s all about pleasing shareholders and how do you do that ? Increasing your revenues! “Selling your personal information ” for 1 .
But , that’s not my point for this post . I think Instagram for 1 doesn’t need to look at the advertising, they need to look at these “influencers ” they have . People with unrealistic “status ” making younger people feel inadequate. People who sneak into hotels , onto a yacht or wherever to take a photo to make people think they are something they are not ( I know a person who would do just that , meanwhile staying in Hostels when traveling because they had no money )
a person or thing that influences another.
So are the people having a positive influence to the Instagram audience?
The answer in my unscientific opinion is NO!
So why not create ” positive ” influencers? Well sex sells as they say .. and as long as they have these beautiful, sexy , rich showing you an unrealistic life money will continue to flow .
Instagram is running a test in several countries where you as a viewer in Instagram can not see how many likes a photo has . What a great idea !! But , I would bet it remains a test and never becomes the norm . Likes on a photo is important to influencers. I don’t know the number , but , if your a company that sells jewelry for example , and you see someone is getting 10,000 likes on a photo , your going to give this person free products to advertise for you . If you get 10 likes on a photo you “ain’t gettin $@*t ” . But if the number of likes is gone , an influencer is not an influencer anymore .
So it’s just my little rant and opinion of how to clean up the social media mess .
But Mark Zuckerberg will sell your personal info for a $ , do you think that they have any intention to cleaning up the things that bring money into his pocket ?
This is all just my opinion , it’s my page so I’m free to speak my mind . In between photoing , I may just do my opinion posts when I see something that I feel like ranting about .
The photo has nothing to do with the article , I just felt like posting it .
