I know I have said it before on this post but the performance of vulnerability by influencers to sell things is harmful.
There is no way one will post a picture on the beach, living it up and in the caption talk about body issues AND THEN sell you a body lotion at the end and think that this is a inspiring. The comments sadden me sometimes because people feel like they should relate to these posts and we in turn become performers – like we have to always be thinking about what issues we have with ourselves and then correlate it to buying this thing that will somehow make our lives better. And the cycle continues.
Inspiration p0rn is annoying.
I know I am simplifying it but I really do think we need to think about how we engage with influencers and their perfomances on social media.
