I was excited about Instagram because I enjoy photography. Of course it had to turn into another garbage fire.

Instagram is ALSO a disinformation powerhouse.

I instantly unfollow any account that brings up any Q Anon garbage or any of the Coronavirus disinformation.

The family dog is now a super-influencer with over 100 followers of which all are also pet themed accounts. This information was presented to me in a very matter of fact manner this morning. Any apparent lack of enthusiasm on my part should be attributed to a malfunctioning Keurig.

yep, there's a LOT of goop-like health woo on instagram.

really dodgy 'medical' and/or wellness stuff is spruced there by influencers.

And this has morphed into anti-vaccination advice and covid-19 misinformation.

Haha!

Instagram is not immune from the same types of manipulation every other platform suffers from.

Also, Fecebook owns it anyway.

Because disinformation is only when it's the other sides information.

It isn't, but QAnon and Covidiots are incomparably disastrous.

And I still have no idea what an "influencer" is. I don't think I am that old being in my early 40's. Hopefully I will get schooled on this subject and something I still won't really care. Or be influenced about something...

Why should you even get Blu-Ray? I download most movies I want to watch, it's just easier and happens to be cheaper.
