Lying to my instagram followers - instagram V reality | 022
If you follow me over on Instagram, you’ll know that last week I carried out a little experiment. Through a series of 3 posts I lied to my followers, intentionally sharing visuals and captions which were far from reality. The purpose? To open up a conversation surrounding the relationship we have with social media, exploring the extent of the negative impact it can have over us.
After documenting the experience, I shared the ‘truth’ with my followers. I was blown away by the response it received and the conversation which was created as a result. The experiment brought up so many more emotions / thoughts / responses than I could sum up in a short video and Instagram caption, so I decided to document it with a podcast episode.
There was no script for this, I just sat down with my microphone and shared my heart behind it, my experience from start to finish, the response it got and where I think this takes us next…
If you’re not already connected with my Instagram or just want to go and have a look at the ‘fake’ posts, you can find my account HERE.
Or find the posts individually…
This experiment only comes into its own when you get involved. So tell me, what’s your take on it all?
