Let’s get one thing straight: I LOVE Instagram. I’m constantly checking my profile, I love posting pictures, it’s seriously one of my favorite things ever.
But there are a few aspects of IG that have me in a bit of a quandry and I’d like to share my concerns. I’d love to hear your thoughts as well!
- First off, let’s talk about all of these fake celebrity profiles. Why in the world are you posting a million and one pictures of another person, as if you were that person?! Does anyone else find this a bit south of strange? Ten to one most of the people doing this are just kids wanting to feel cool, but then you have the one creepy old man who’s posing as Miley Cyrus and that’s when things get weird my friend.
- #why #are #we #hash #tagging #every #single #word #? I really don’t understand it. I mean I understand hash tagging, but are they’re really that many people tagging #she? and #it? and #fun? #girl? #me? I could go on for ages. When I have to scroll down to see all of your hash tags, I think it’s a bit much.
- food pics. I understand when say, you cooked a meal for the first time in ever and you want to show off. I’ll applaud you’re efforts just like everyone else. Or say you go to some swanky restaurant and want to show off your plate of whatever, I’m fine with that too, I”ll even comment if it looks appetizing. When 95% of your pictures are food, and it’s things like you’re McDonald’s burger or you with a Starbucks cup? I’m not interested and frankly, I think it’s strange that anyone is.
- inappropriate selfies. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about the selfie, just check out my profile if you don’t believe me. But when you’ve cut your face off to get more of the twins, or you’re taking a bathroom pic in your sports bra, or GUYS if you’re taking pictures at the gym with your pants hanging down? Or oooh my favorites, when you post pictures of yourself crying. Lord knows I look like an absolute gremlin when I shed tears, why on Earth do you think I’d want to see you crying? It just depresses me and then I’ve got to worry about what kind of family situation you have, and if you have the proper kind of parenting in your life, or if you need some counseling and frankly that’s just too much for me to have to worry about during my IG break at work. Let’s just not.
I’m sure I could go on for ages but I’ll stop at these four, they have me in the most of a puzzle. If anyone could explain these phenomenon to me in relatively simple terms I would appreciate it. Or you can just stop posting stupid pictures and then we’d all be happy. Or as happy as I can get when I haven’t had a Dr. Pepper.
