It's the 'Gram. An entire generation of lazy kids has turned a social media platform into a successful lifestyle. Where was this when we worked at gas stations and movie theaters. It is a craze that has swept the world and left little privacy in its wake. Show check out some of the best Insta memes and gifs and everything in between and satisfy that urge to add a Story.
Before it got yanked, @frankiegreek was able to capture this moment in all of its glory.
We've all seen the shameless marketing promotions by celebrities on Instagram, so we know exactly what Scott Disick was trying to do. Some company sends you a product with a clever marketing message and you post a picture of how it changed your life. Unfortunately, Disick aka “letthelordbewithyou” had a little trouble with the copy and paste.
It looks like he's since updated his image. The comment section is flooded and it seems that the typo may have actual worked in favor for Lord Disick and Boo Tea Shake. In all likelihood, this whole thing was done on purpose and a way for Lord Disick to show just how disingenuous Instagram promotions can be.... SUCCESS?!
Essena O'Neill, from the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, had over 574,000 Instagram followers, more than 250,000 subscribers on YouTube and around 60,000 dedicated Snapchat contacts when she decided to give up her life as a 'social media celebrity'.
In her final YouTube video, O'Neil describes why she is quitting social media.
"I put my value in numbers, not real life people, moments or my natural passions of art, writing...Posting on Instagram consumed me," she wrote.
"We are not followers, we are beings of individuality and love. I have never felt so free."
She said she is leaving her Instagram and YouTube accounts up as documentation of her journey. She even started changing Instagram captions to reveal the truth about sponsored posts and highly edited photos.
Instead of using popular social media platforms, O'Neill has set up a website and blog, letsbegamechangers.com, where she will continue to interact with fans and share her content.
Her first challenge to users? Go social media free for one week.
Facebook just announced its purchase of Instagram, the ever-popular sepia-toned image-sharing service. This is just another blow to hipsters everywhere, as last week the app made its way to Android phones. No word yet how this deal will change its use via Facebook, but be prepared to have desaturized pictures of cheap food clogging up your news feed very soon.
