After almost 2 1/2 years I PERMANENTLY closed Instagram. A place that started out great but now has turned into what I call the Nazi of Social Media because ANY Opinion you give, no matter how respectful you are, they come after you like Bats from Hell. It’s Creepy and Sad at the same time that the VAST Majority of people with common sense are attacked and pressured until they get to the point I got today, closing the account. I’m not saying all people on Instagram are like this, not everyone there is psycho, but those that follow fan sites, especially celebrities, are One step close to the Nut house. You literally Cannot give An honest opinion about a celebrity because the majority of replies will be downright Nasty and overwhelmingly Negative. Even in book accounts I found having to defend myself. What the Hell happen to people having their Own Opinions and expressing it without the fear of being disliked or worse Attacked in vile ways!! Hence why after almost three years (would have been 3 years in August) I decided that for my own sanity I needed to close it FOR Good and Not look back.
I agree with this girl in this article : “Instagram is inauthentic and makes me compare my life to others, which I don’t like. I think it forces us to look at our lives as a snapshot and equate our worth to likes. It lacks depth.”
This other article also gives valid reasons for closing the account.
