Fuck Instagram

Just a quick update today; thought it would be a good idea to inform you all that I’ve made the decision to bin my Instagram account, once and for all. This is partially due to my dwindling interest in the site, but mostly because I think Instagram is shit and awful. I haven’t exactly been active on there much in a long time, so it was a pretty easy decision.

I certainly started out my Instagram journey with a lot of gusto and enthusiasm, I even took part in an Instagram marketing course when I first logged in 3 years ago, but the motivation well as completely dried up. The first reason for this is due to being constantly dicked-over by Instagram’s fucking algorithm. Mark Zuckerberg doesn’t seem to understand that if people click “follow” on my profile, it’s because they want to follow my work. However, I was regularly being informed that the majority of my posts were only reaching about 5% of my followers, leading me to believe that the “follow” button is entirely cosmetic.

This isn’t my main grievance with Instagram though. My main grievance is with the God-awful, pissing in my sandwich follow/unfollow system that everyone adopts. For those who don’t know what this is, it’s a system that people use where they’ll follow you in the hopes that you’ll follow them back. If you don’t, they’ll then immediately unfollow you. This means that only about 10% of your followers are actually real, which is why I’ve been stuck at about 130 followers for roughly 3 years now, despite the 1000s of people that have actually clicked the follow button on my profile. If you do use the follow/unfollow system on Instagram, just be careful to not get used for bloodletting, because you’re a fucking leech.

Don’t get me wrong, my experience with Instagram hasn’t been as bad as DeviantArt, but that’s like saying that I prefer waterboarding to being castrated in Ramsay Bolton’s sex dungeon. Sure, Instagram’s algorithm can suck my ass, but at least my front page isn’t being constantly spammed with furry porn. Honestly, what does it even take to become successful on social media sites? Obviously quality is out of the question, alongside being a respectable human being, so what’s the secret? Maybe I’m just not cool and trendy enough to fit in? I guess this is why I chose to make my own website, with blackjack and hookers.

At the end of the day, the less I have to do with any form of social media, the better. In have no idea how any of these so-called social media gurus manage to maintain any kind of mental stability whatsoever. Maybe that’s why a lot of them turn to drugs, or spouting racial indecencies? Anyway, that’s enough from me for now – I have actually worked up the motivation to get back to drawing, so expect more of that in the (hopefully) near future. Until then, ciao!
