What If Instagram Hid Likes?

Published April 25, 2019 by Shay Taree

So just last week I happened to read an article written by The Verge that talked about a unreleased feature from Instagram that would’ve hidden likes. The only person that would be able to view how many likes a post got would be the original poster.

The meaning of this feature was so that followers focused on the content you posted and not how many likes a post got.

Well after reading this article it got me thinking about how the platform would be very different if this feature existed. I feel like if this feature was around it would greatly reduce the comparison issue to some extent. I feel like so many of us focus on how many likes a picture we post gets compared to our friends that it makes us very careful of what we post for fear of it not getting a lot of likes.

Also I wonder if it would have a impact on how many people would have actually been discovered as influencers because of this feature. As many of us know a lot of brands look at which people have a lot of followers or likes on pictures and use this to their advantage when it comes to brand deals and things like that. Well what would it be like if you couldn’t see how many likes someone’s picture got? I think a lot of brands would not use Instagram as a platform for pushing a product so much and many Instagram models may no longer have a job.

I know many of y’all are probably thinking well what about followers we would still see that count. That is true but I feel like it would be unlikely to tell if these are legit followers or followers this person may have bought.

Overall if this feature existed I feel like Instagram would be a very very different platform. But to be honest I kind of wish that it existed. I wish that it was a feature that you could turn on or off.

So now I extend the question to you…Do you like the idea of this feature? Would you use this feature? Also how do you think this feature would affect the platform? Plus do you think it would be a start to helping to turn down comparison surrounding the likes or what a person posts? Let me know by commenting down below.

Beyoncé’s Homecoming!

Published April 18, 2019 by Shay Taree

So yesterday I got a chance to check out Beyoncé’s Homecoming special on Netflix and all I have to say is that it is amazing. The Netflix special pretty much gives you a behind the scenes look of Beyoncé’s performance at Cochella. It also goes a little more in depth to her pregnancy and birth of the twin Rumi and Sir.

You see how she picks the band, her dancers, her steppers and the reason why she decided to make the artistic decisions that she did. One of the things she says is that she wanted to bring our culture the black culture to Cochella for all to experience. She also chose the people that she chose so that all the people that felt that they didn’t fit in or were different were represented on stage.

It was definitely an amazing thing to see and it made me very proud to be not only black but also a black women. It made me feel powerful and proud to be who I am.

I definitely recommend other people to check it out if you can because it was definitely eye opening and also inspiring. I can also say that I think it will be inspiring to those that may not love her music because she has a way of touching everyone in some way.

So watch it on Netflix and check out her new album that also released on the same day under the same title as the Netflix special. Plus comment down below on what you thought of the special of you watched it or if you will watch it?
