Do you trust Social Media "influencers"

Just take every brand that they get and it actually shows on their page. There are influencers who promote Ariel. They promote Soft Excel, they promote Lux, they promote ponds, they promote every small, big brand that they get, whether that suits their niche or not. So what are your thoughts on this influencer growing community? I feel it's great that we have influencers, but I also feel we need to filter out who we follow and who knows

When we checked the page, we saw that the Influencer released our photos in July and that merchandise company, their photos got released in August. But the thing is that now you trusted for the entire month of July, people thought that the Influencer is promoting our stuff. And for the entire month, the month of August, the Influencer promoted the same stuff of different companies

But the influencers that I like, I would give them the benefit of the doubt that they are being their true sales online because otherwise I wouldn't be following them if they were. Ultimately, I would not trust social media influencers, especially if they have just been involved in so many controversies or just most people get an awful feeling about them. If that feeling is there that something is off or they are just feeling very fake, then that feeling is probably right

So I was watching his reaction video and how he was talking about her nutrition. You just have to listen to the swell to watch the video to understand where I come from. But what I've overall seen from her. What I didn't is that the entire video is like super bougie

@Rover_Phoenix completely agree with u !

But I feel an influencer is a person who shares the truth, who influences people to get out of their comfort zone or understand a few things, and they are like a go to person for anyone who is seeking help in some area, there are a lot of people who spill the truth that I follow them too. Some are really inspiring. Some of them have unfollowed because it's just pretty things on their feed, and that's not how life is. So yeah, I completely agree with you

So I'm not saying that you actually keep talking about depression, anxiety all the time, but it's on how you fight your daily things and how you emerge successful in a way that you inspire people. So I feel that's what an influencer should be, that's for me completely. And yeah, it completely depends on who to trust and who to. Not so glad I could hear your side as well

I'm glad I could hear your side as well. Completely agree with you. You cannot do, do, do, do, do do do you trust social media influencers person, but it completely depends on how you portray your life. If it's all goody, goody, all bed of roses. So that's not really possible. Right. So it's good to find a person who puts out their real self. Talk about things, talk about how they fought and emerged successful

Because I have seen a lot of youngsters following these influencers and bothering their parents on getting stuff that they want because of seeing people online. Everybody feels everybody has a good life. So when you are in your teenage, you actually don't realize you have just started out life till school. Everything is goody. Goody. You are in a very beautiful nest. But once you actually fly, go to College and see the world out. Life is very different. It's not all bed of roses
