Just a slight conundrum

Instagram is slightly ridiculous. Two months ago, and fifty-one posts later I am convinced the human race is a collective raw desert. They are made with nuts. With a follow to following average of one to four, my new favourite life channel Insta is either going to be deleted and or most probably deleted. My liking and follow strategies are totally hopeless, giving likes away like candy, following at the drop of not the clichΓ© hat, but, something else similar. It’s because the collective nut job is as endearing as it is sickening. Just like the bees adorning the chiropractic suite down the road. Decorative clip art with no relevance to anything spine. Not sickening, just a conundrum exploiting much brain matter.

  1. ‘Like’ has had it’s meaning changed through social media I reckon; how much do the likers genuinely like posts? Do they even look at the posts first, or is it a game of tag for some? Status and import behind it all? I do ‘like’ the posts I like mind you, but it’s a strange place the webby.

    Great crown!

      My personal like syndrome is exceedingly ridiculous, but it reflective of how much I do actually like so many things, and stuff and what people do. I am a liking machine.

      But true, what you say is true.

      There are hard likers, who think about their likes, giving their likes more potency. And the others (me).

      When you like my stuff it makes me feel good, so thank you πŸ™‚

      • Well you produce posts of quality, and that makes a difference all round, and I always enjoy them. They make one think, or feel one needn’t think at all – just float along in the aether. *smiles*.

        ‘Hard likers’ – Hahahahaha. Proper hard-core!

        Thanks Esme, your kind reflections mean much to me, thank you very much

      Thanks Mike, yes Instagram could be good if used in the right way. But I just got carried away and abused it, so it has to go.

  2. All social media is slightly to completely ridiculous but can be kind of fun nutty as it is. This is a beautiful picture and worth more than a thousand likes could ever mean.

      Thanks Marissa, yes it’s quite absurd the lot.

      Simon Edmonds a man I have no clue of who is (was in the weekend paper), has a theory about box jellyfish and humanity, “a collective, self-perpetuating paranoid delusion where I do what I think you think I should do”. I think he may be onto something.

      And the picture is a special one for me, so thank you for appreciating it as much πŸ™‚

      Perfect, and thank you. Your comments and likes are much appreciated, always πŸ™‚

  3. I like your posts…unless I don’t. I don’t get upset about the lack of likes I get for my instagram posts either, and it’s as easy to unfollow as it is to unfriend on FB. And sometimes I post comments just to let the person know I’m not a liking robot πŸ™‚

      Thank you for your honesty Stephen, it’s refreshing. Yeah I couldn’t care less either , kind of just want to give it all a go, see what it’s all about. There are actually quality artists on there too, but yeah . Thanks for the non robotic comment, means a lot πŸ™‚

      • There comes a point in all our lives when we’re at ease doing the things we like for ourselves and not only to please someone else…..unless we’re still working for a living 😊

      • Jessie Martinovic – Author

        Yes indeed, have a most beautiful day Stephen πŸ™‚

  4. I suspect Instagram is yet another world government exercise to decrease collective intelligence and self reliance, to increase our dependence on the machines that think but am not sure. Google will not answer. 😊
