With Privacy Changes, Instagram Upsets Influencer Economy

SAN FRANCISCO, United States – Less than a week before Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg donned a suit to testify before the United States Congress, influencer monetisation platform sent an email to users: “As of today, you will be able to shop Instagram content exclusively with a screenshot, as like-based shopping will no longer be supported due to changes in Facebook/Instagram’s third-party access to likes.”

Down on Yourself? Here's Why You're Doing Just Fine

It’s easy to beat yourself up. You compare yourself to friends or family members, even complete strangers. Your eyes will glance from your outfit to the next person’s ensemble, or you’ll compare your dinner with your Instagram feed’s never ending supply of food shots. Maybe you feel like you’re not moving up the ladder as quickly as you want, or that your love life could use some work.

We all do it. We all critique ourselves harshly, and with much more disdain than we’d ever consider judging another person with. We could tell you to just stop being so hard on yourself—and we are telling you to do that—but we also want to share this list with you.

It’s a list comprised of 20 reasons why you’re doing better than you think you are. On it: you question yourself, you can afford your morning cup of coffee, you have multiple outfits in your closet, and you’ve lost relationships.

  • You paid the bills this month.
  • You question yourself.
  • You have a job.
  • You have time to do something you enjoy.
  • You are not worried about where your next meal is coming from.
  • You can eat because you enjoy it.
  • You have one or two truly close friends.
  • You could afford a subway ride, cup of coffee, or the gas in your car this morning.
  • You’re not the same person you were a year ago.
  • You have the time and means to do things beyond the bare minimum.
  • You have a selection of clothing at your disposal.
  • You can sense what isn’t right in your life.
  • If you could talk to your younger self, you would be able so say: “We did it, we made it out, we survived that terrible thing.”
  • You have a space of your own.
  • You’ve lost relationships.
  • You’re interested in something.
  • You know how to take care of yourself.
  • You’re working toward a goal.
  • But you’re not uncompromisingly set on anything for your future.
  • You’ve been through some crap.

Your New Favorite Instagram Account: Hot Dudes Reading

We just found your new favorite Instagram account, but you can thank us after you spend hours scrolling through all of the photos. We anticipate myriad heart-eye emojis flowing from your smartphone’s keyboard upon doing so.

Hot Dudes Reading is exactly what it sounds like: candid, undercover snaps of handsome men fully engrossed in a book while they ride the subway. The anonymous creators say they came up with the idea after lamenting to each other that they were “constantly falling in love on our subway commutes and organically began sending these pictures to one another.”

Read more about Hot Dudes Reading, plus see more pictures, here. And you’re welcome.

Instagram is an undulating sea of images featuring this morning’s latte, last night’s dinner, cats and fitness selfies. Also in the mix, of course, are plenty of beauty and makeup related images. There are hair tutorials, makeup of the day shots (#MOTD), and even behind-the-scenes snaps from fashion weeks, award shows and celebrity bathrooms. Today we’re sharing our list of 11 celebrity Instagram accounts that give us a glimpse into their beauty routines.


This purple haired maven helped make reality TV a thing, and we love her sassy –and hilarious — Instagram account.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley‘s instagram is full of dreamy images and on-the-scene shots from photo sessions. Swoon.

Fact: 2014 was the year of Kylie Jenners‘ lips. This member of the Kardashian Krew has one of the most stalked Instagram accounts, and it’s all because of her makeup game.

This relatable babe posts a lot of animal pics and memes, but we’re totally subscribed for the selfies. #flawless

No “best celebrity instagram accounts” is complete without a Lauren Conrad mention, especially if we’re talking beauty.

Nicole Richie‘s transformation from her Paris Hilton days has to be one of the best ever. Maybe even more epic than the Clueless makeover.

We love that Gwyn keeps it real. ‘Nuff said.
