Earlier this year, Instagram announced that they were about to unroll a feature that would tell you how much time you spent on the app. It took six months, but the feature is finally being rolled out for the users worldwide.
Even though “social media influencer” sounds like a made-up job, it looks like it has something in common with “real jobs” after all. If you fail to do it right – you will face consequences.

It’s nothing new that Instagram-celebrities can sometimes make “common people” feel inadequate. Lifestyle blogger Scarlett London recently came under fire because of just that, and it all started over a photo of her “perfect morning.” The photo features a stack of pancakes; or, should I say, a bunch of tortilla wraps she presented as pancakes?
