Why I Don’t Trust Social Media Influencers (Even When I am One) & Why You Should Be More Mindful

1. Manipulation of Data:

There is a concept called Fear of Missing Out and I am sure you must have heard about this concept earlier as well. Now, social media influencers use this concept in a very strategic way. Let me show a simple example of HOW.

2. Fake Advice:

Okay, this is one of the things that forced me to write this blog. I am really scared to write this blog because oh my god! I don’t want to be the person who spreads negativity nor do I want to be attacked but then I never fear expressing what I feel so I am going to say it anyway.

3. Everything Is Half-True:

What you and I see on social media is not completely true. Influencers show what you would like to see. And I am not sorry to say but here you are wrong not influencers.

4. Social Pressure:

Another factor that I hate about social media is how pressurized it makes us feel.


I mentioned earlier as well and let me say it again, this blog is not for every influencer but for those who are using their power in the wrong way. I hope after reading this blog, you get your senses back and use your brain before you believe what you see and watch.
