The Way of Instagram

I feel my gaze was off Instagram and onto another medium: YouTube. If anyone is like me and loves discussing situations...

Instagram vs. Reality

I debated taking a picture. Should I take a picture? No, you said you’re not going to take a picture. It’s Instagram vs. reality. But Instagram is not reality. The two are very different. You have to decide what reality is and take a stand.

Overcome the Instafame Effect

When you start getting enough positive responses on Instagram, your confidence starts to rise.

In our environment, positive things are often perceived as positive. We tend to accept and celebrate positive behavior more than negative. This is what researchers call the Instafame Effect. It’s a psychological phenomenon in which people of a particular demographic (e.g., younger people or celebrities) receive more positive feedback for their behavior on Instagram than others in the same demographic. A recent study by the researchers Barnaby Dineen, Leigh Cowart, and Rebecca Warner (shown in the bottom portion of the photo) looks at the effects of Instagram on teenagers. Participants were interviewed before and after they engaged in a social media activity, such as posting a photo to Instagram. They rated their self-esteem and well-being after posting a photo. Some participants posted about something positive or something good that happened to them, whereas others posted a picture about an ideal situation or something good. According to researchers, “self-esteem was positively correlated with positive photos of the young people’s self-concept, self-consciousness, and sense of self-worth. These results suggest that adolescents felt good about themselves after posting a positive photo of themselves on social media sites.”

Everyone is Positive on Instagram

Scientists do not believe that instafame is only a phenomenon of celebrities. Even the way we respond to positive circumstances—and people—is conditioned. We tend to have a positive response for positive social situations. We are cognitively primed to accept reality, even if it is slightly off the path of reality. Most of the social media platforms operate off the same type of cognitive processes, to explain and understand situations and people as positive. Just as the Instafame Effect creates a gap between reality and Instagram, it creates a gap between the true situation and the social media version of reality.

How to Overcome Instafame

Everyone can suffer from instafame, regardless of social standing or position. The issues can also come in two phases: cognitive and situational. Cognitive issues are what I call the “Instafame Effect” and are the problems that arise when we are confronted by a situation where people are judging our behavior. Like social perception and judgments of others, the reality of cognitive issues comes from our experience in real life. I talked with author Julie Coxon about cognitive issues and how to explain them. For example, you explain how people really react differently to you when you argue on social media, but you are having a disagreement with someone that’s farther away and wouldn’t happen in real life. The experience is not the same. This causes cognitive problems when you explain the cognitive issues and situations to people who are not in the same situations as you.

In situations like the first one, when you have something to prove or feel you are in an unfair social situation, you have to explain it, explain why it is different, or try to explain to people why it is not the same. You need to explain the situation to explain why it is real life. This is how you start explaining the situations on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and other social media platforms. These platforms are the logical extensions of our real life. We should explain situations to people—their reactions to reality, not a version of reality. Once you explain it, you explain why it is different.

Situational issues are in situations that are rare, unpreventable, or uncertain. In such situations, it’s difficult to explain the situation to people. Just like a situation in real life, it is not easy to explain why we are judged differently or why we are in a certain situation. However, you can try to explain situations in real life. When you explain situations, you also explain what situations and situations cause. However, you can’t explain it to people if you can’t explain how you are different or how you had a certain situation. You need to explain how you are different or how you had a different situation to explain why you are judged differently. There is a debate going on on a social media platform right now, with a debate about what you should post on Facebook for both new and old followers. In a lot of the debates, there are situations that people describe and discuss. With a limited knowledge of social situations, people can’t explain or explain these situations to people. The ways we explain it to people also explain what situations cause instafame or cognitive issues.

The easiest way to deal with the instafame problem is to deal with situations in real life. The argument starts with “It’s different than real life.” If that argument is compelling and credible, then it can be considered legitimate to explain to people in real life what is in reality and what happens in social media. Whether you believe in real life or reality versus social media, you need to explain it to people. If you explain it, people might understand it. This will be better for your social status and reputation in social media, and people can change their attitudes and opinions about you. The second way to overcome instafame is to confront situations in real life and explain situations in real life. You can explain it in real life and in social situations, and this will reduce or prevent the instafame effect. If you try to explain situations in real life, people might not get it. Maybe it’s harder for people to understand it in real life. I’ve explained situations that are real in real life and
