H E A L I N G: ⁣How’s everyone doing so far today?⁣⁣Revisiting one of my favourite books by @theijeoma and almost every quote is relatable in the middle of this revolution that’s happening. ⁣⁣“1. You must let the pain visit.⁣2. You must allow it teach you.⁣3. You must not allow it overstay.”⁣⁣— Ijeoma Umebinyuo, Questions for Ada⁣⁣Pain comes in different forms. Pain can be quiet. Pain can sneak up on you. Remember it’s okay to feel overwhelmed and also okay to log off and recuperate. ⁣⁣What’s happening is painful but it is NECESSARY. It’s allowed so many black people to express years and years of pent up pain, anger and frustration.⁣⁣But remember to allow yourself to heal ✊🏾🙏🏾 ⁣ #blacklivesstillmatter

P U L L  U P: Morning ig fam. Diversity is a strength, not a threat ✊🏻✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿 It’s amazing the support we’ve seen for #BlackLivesMatter over the last few days but let’s keep the momentum going. This is just the beginning. We’re not going to dismantle in a week, racism that has been in-built for decades and it’s going to take more than posting black squares on the feed. Let’s keep calling out BS where we see it. Here for @jackieaina ‘s call for brands to #pulluporshutup 🙌🏾 PS: I shared in my stories my example of a brand that needs to do better when it comes to matching up their actions with their words...

Instagram Won’t Let Celebrities and Bloggers Be Great : Instagram Did A Clean Sweep and Some Folks Got Hit Pretty bad. LOL

So this #InstagramRapture had me in in fits and kept me up laughing like mad last night. I saw this message on Insta when I logged on last week and thought, oooh this is not going to go down too well.

 

We all know some people make a living out of the huge following their social media accounts boast. As a blogger, I have seen brands contact you and develop cold feet when the find out you haven’t cracked a 5 or 6 figure following on Instagram yet. WOMP.

So yes, the pressure is on. To buy fake followers so that big brand names witll contact you for product endorsements. Lawd knows I have thought twice and real hard about it. But the shame is just too much. People be having 20K with 30 likes and 0 engagemnet on their pics…

Instagram was like no, no, NAWL we ain’t having NONE of that.

So the #Rapture happened…

A lot of folks, including me, lost about 5% of their followers.

I was gearing up to hit 3K when, Instagram hit me with 200 followers OFF. Womp 🙁

Damn. But I shoulda known something was up when most of my followers were body wraps and hair bundles sellers 0_o

5-10% is the normal rate for followers to lose in Instagram’s latest clean sweep. But if you lost more than 5%, gwirl, you have been investing in the wrong venture.

Someone made a list titled, The Biggest Losers and I have been laughing non-stop err since. Like Akon went from 4.3 million followers to 1.9 followers. Hahahaha!! Instagram is SOOO petty. I love them. They knew this was gonna happen.

akon lost instagram spam followers

 

And Mase went from 1.7 million followers to 272,000. The tea was SPILLT! Lmao. And Mase was having none of that. He quit Instagram yesterday.

Users like chiragchirag78 went from 3.6 million to 8 followers. Yes, 8. As in 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7…8.

Why, Lordt, WHY? LOL. They must have known. As soon as Instagram made that announcement, they should have gone out the back door to avert such public humiliation. As of yesterday, the account no more exists on Instagram. The tea was too hot to handle. WELP.

instagram followers lost spam

 

View the full list of celebrities and people who lost the most followers on Instagram here.

As funny as this is, there is a serious underlying issue here. The need to appear popular on social media is going out of hand that we need to fool our own selves of how important/loved we are.

At the end of the day, a like or follow doesn’t validate anything. It ain’t that serious. Or is it?

What is going on here people?

It’s Friday people. ENJOY.

    I totally agree…………I lost about 300 but I’d rather lose ghost followers and have more authentic followers on my social media pages. But you are so right the ones who bought followers the tea was STRONGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG huntie I had some good laughs. It does get tough to see other bloggers with tens of thousands of followers but I always remember I didn’t start blogging for likes or follows so I keep that in mind when I don’t feel like enough of a “celebrity” lolll
