Seriously, I really, really don’t like selfies. I think the selfie and the act of taking a selfie has completely brainwashed people from living in the moment. This is defiantly an aggravated post about how upset I am over the selfie culture, and why I believe that it is time to take a step back from the camera. But before you get mad at me for this opinion, hear me out.
The Data Pack recently came up with an unofficial list of banned hashtags on Instagram. I’m not thrilled about a lot of the choices, because some of them are pretty lame. For example, #Instagram and #photography are banned because co-founder Mike Krieger feels that they are too “generic” and don’t add enough “value” to the site… um what? But some of the banned terms make perfect sense to me, like the fact that anything pro-anorexia or thinspo.
We have previously written about Tumblr attempting to ban thinspiration posts, but if you’ve been on the Internet at all in the last few months, you can see that, uh, that didn’t really do anything. Pro-anorexia and thinspiration sites and images are still going strong, especially on social media sites like Tumblr, Pinterest and Instagram.
Seriously, cool it with the hashtags.
