It all started as an “innocent” social media network in 2010 where people shared pictures out of their daily lives. In the beginning, most users didn’t even realize that photos were actually shared. They just used it because of the filters. But very soon more and more people started creating an account and some smart asses saw an interesting opportunity to make money. Day after the day the network turned more into big business. “Regular” people like us see it as a tool to become famous, celebs use it to become more famous.
The people vs Instagram
In 2016, the society expects that you have an Instagram account. The more followers you have, the more you are somebody. Even for celebs such as Justin Bieber and Kendall Jenner it was somehow a must. Bieber could use it to promote his music and Kendall to push her modeling career. This might not be entirely the case when your family name is Jenner. But for other models it has become essential to be popular on Instagram. Otherwise there’s a rather large chance that they don’t get the job.
Slowly but surely the network started having a huge impact on our world. What was all about liking in the beginning turned into a bunch of nasty comments. We don’t know if you ever had a look at the comments underneath the posts of celebs such as the Kardashians… It’s definitely not something you would want to read. For some people they should abolish the freedom of speech, that’s for sure.
