Instagram’s For Flexin
I’ve been using social media since the Black Planet days (remember that) and during my 10 years or so in the social media scene, I’ve come to a few conclusions: Facebook is for family and other associates that you never plan on meeting in person again. Twitter’s for talking sh*t. And Instagram’s for flexin.
When Instagram 1st popped up on the scene a couple of years ago, I was like whatever, it’ll be gone like the wind. But, it’s actually started to grow on me. Where else can you flex your tax refund goodies, half naked body, rental cars and struggle plates? It’s sad that there are actually people are out there planning their life around what they can floss on Instagram. You know you have a problem when you find yourself buying things and going certain places just so you can post it on Instagram. We call that low self-esteem ’round these parts.
It’s also sad when somebody’s Twitter persona doesn’t correlate to their Instagram swag. It’s like they talk all this sh*t online, but then when you go to their Instagram, it’s filled with fake Gucci belts, Rudy Huxtable memes and dingy white tees. If you’re going to portray yourself a certain way on Facebook or Twitter, make sure it all lines up on Instagram because nowadays b*tches are out here analyzing pictures down to the curtains on your walls.
Do you agree?
