Stina Sanders is a well-known fashion blogger and model who has thousands of Instagram followers who admire her for the sort of life she seems to portray on her account. Typical model Instagram, basically. But Sanders wanted to join the crowd of people who are famous on Instagram but want to show the world that not everything that is uploaded to the Internet is real.
Since the whole Esenna O’Neill thing a few days ago, lots of people are going insane trying to figure out what’s real or not on Instagram. Lots of people are criticizing others on this social site claiming their pictures are completely fake and artificial. Are things starting to get out of hand?
Whenever we want to be good at something, we have to work for it. You can’t just want something and wait for it to happen, things don’t work that way. We have to be constant, establish a goal and go for it. The same goes for Instagram accounts and how they’re used.
Maybe some of you have heard that name before, maybe you haven’t. Either way, this girl is a young Australian model who’s been working in the industry for quite some years. However, her fame slightly sky-rocketed because of all the controversy she was generating with her new way-too-slim body.
In fact, a year ago she was on the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week catwalk and heads were turning in awe. But not in a good way! People were shocked at how extremely thin the girl was, and in fact someone called up her manager to tell him that someone as thin as that shouldn’t be modelling. Either way, she hasn’t given up on her carreer yet.
And, just like any other model, she has an Instagram account. She’s not too popular, but her pictures do get a few hundreds of likes. Yesterday she uploaded a picture that said “Say yes to new adventures” and guess how many likes it got? 14. But hey, we all upload a picture that gets way less likes than the rest, right? It’s totally normal. But Cassi wasn’t having it.
She didn’t just get upset, btu she uploaded another picture telling her followers that she didn’t understand how she had such little likes. “I have to say I’m pretty shocked because this, to me, either means that people A) don’t like me having new adventures, as if I’m not allowed fun [sic], or B) it means people don’t like new adventures.”
Well… wow. This is clearly an example of people who are taking social media the wrong way. Instagram does make you want your pictures to get likes and comments, but you just fight for it. You’re not supposed to do these sort of things when things don’t go as expected!
