Right. There's nothing inherent about the term influencer that annoys me - every sponsored athlete is an influencer and while I don't proactively follow any I don't shield myself either and at some level am undoubtedly influenced by the brands they wear. The weirdness has crept in around people who do nothing except [pretend to] exist in a way that other people find aspirational. There's something profoundly unhealthy about tracking the lifestyle of someone you don't know, don't admire, don't find interesting or funny and might not even like just because you wish you looked the way they look, or because they post photos of a lifestyle you wish you had.

How about the hashtags #yourlifeisprobablyamess #toomuchmakeup and #youalllookthesame

Fucking “influencers” trying to be the next Kardashian and monetize their “brand”. I don’t know what’s worse, all the hashtags or the stupid motivational quote that has to accompany each photo.

Actually come to think of it - I do know what’s worse. it’s being on vacation at a resort and just wanting to relax by the pool with a cocktail, but having a wannabe influencer next to you taking selfies literally.all.the.time. Bravo to that resort owner.

I don't use anything where I can follow someone.

Watch the 2 doc's out about the Frye festival.. its all crap..

Influencers.. why would these people influence me, I don't know them, they don't know me, why would I want to do what they say or do? Why would anyone?

Pictures are potent, they set the bar for how somebody should look, eat live. Or organise their tool wall or knot their tie.

old school influencers would be the likes of Joe DiMaggio, Greta Garbo, Julia Child. The queen bee soccer mom. They just had different platforms.

That’s not true. Those people were famous because they had accomplishements. 99% of people that consider themselves influencers have accomplished nothing beyond working the internet monetarily due to the stupidity and gullibility of a frightening proportion of the population.

The first time I heard the term "influencer" was on the Fyre Festival documentary. Influencers were paid to convince the masses that Fyre Festival was the party not to be missed. The next time I heard the term was the Ivy School scandal and that Lori Loughlin's daughter was an influencer. Not impressed.

I have the same problem with anyone who describes themselves as a "Celebrity". What a bunch of C**ts.

Seriously though - Instagram is great - How else would i get through a 2 hour meeting without being able to look at surfing, bikes and chicks on bikes, while pretending i'm so important that i am emailing people from my phone.

haha sounds like you've never seen a woman's magazine. I'm not saying it's right, just that it's true.

I'd agree with you if you replaced "how somebody should" with "how many feel they should"

Nobody that I am aware of on Instagram. People who are discussing important ideas like Steven Brill (Tailspin), Patrick Deneen (Why Liberalism Failed) and William Gardiner.

Perhaps the real revolutionaries are those that keep their promises.
