I've never met a girl who even remotely cared whether I had an instagram. I honestly can't even remember meeting one who asked.

It would be a serious negative if a girl is too much Instagram focused.
At least if she monetized her account, I have some respect for that.

All that attention-seeking bullshit really bothers me. If I am on a date and a girl is checking her likes or her Instagram, it's a turnoff for me and a sign of disrespect. I don't have it (I do have a business account for a blog), and so far nobody really cared.

RE: Instagram in 2019: why the world is fucked beyond repair
Stumbled upon this beautiful girl in my home country. Her Instagram was full of the usual stuff: attention whoring and ass shots. She was about a 9, and had the full slut regalia already all worked out: obvious boob job in the last year or so, a tongue piercing, and a nipple piercing clearly visible in the very tight outfits she was wearing.

What shocked me is I hadn't properly read her bio. The girl was 15. 15 years old. Which means some of her older pics from just a year or two ago she was 13. I nearly choked on my cornflakes. Tens of thousands of followers. Horny men posting comments. Picture after picture of the most provocative poses and outfits.

If I were this girl's father - and she has one in her life as he featured in some of the snaps - I would have her Instagram shut down immediately. There is no way my child would be allowed to solicit for male attention in this way.

They learn young. It's instinctive for them. Beauty is their currency. They're desperate to know their value in the sexual marketplace. Competing with women for a short supply of available alpha men. They've always had this in them, it's just now with social media you're seeing it in its most naked form.

With the male attention they receive it gives them the illusion of endless choice, which is obviously not the case. Their brain is being hardwired by the endless dopamine hits, and nothing good can come of this.

You can make a very compelling argument that women and their ENTIRE LIVES (especially attractive ones who are under 25 years of age) SOMEHOW RELATE BACK TO INSTAGRAM in one way or another.

Selfies?
Posted to IG

New outfit?
Posted to IG

Trendy vacation?
Posted to IG

Work or work related function?
Posted to IG

Family member dies?
Posted to IG

Father's Day?
Posted to IG (usually with something about "my king")

Mother's Day?
Posted to IG (usually with something about "my queen")

Graduation from some type of school?
Posted to IG

Gym pics?
Posted to IG

Engagement?
Posted to IG

Night out at trendy new bar with friends?
Posted to IG

New restaurant?
Posted to IG

I can go on, and on, and on, and on, and on....

Their entire well being someway, somehow, goes back to IG. Think about it....I mean really think about it...ponder it...

This is not limited to women btw, today's man under let's say 35 years old is not too far behind.

Forget access to high value males. It's not even about that. Sure it happens through IG, but this is more about a NEED FOR ATTENTION AND VALIDATION.

This isn't an "I want attention", this is an I NEED attention. They NEED it just to function. Those likes are dopamine rushes. Every. Single. One. They need to be part of what mainstream society is doing. They CANNOT, NOT follow the trend.

The modern woman would rather go without sex for a month, than IG for a week. I believe that 100%.

When can we say social media or IG be treated on the same level as cocaine and ban it?

lol I know it would never happen, but this clearly a new phenomenon we have never seen before in human history.

Allow me to piss into the wind and say that if you're straight male under the age of 25 you don't have a fucking choice and you need to be on social media. That doesn't mean you need to rent lambos to show off or spend 10 hours a day whiteknighting random whales, you just need to have an account and post a picture of whatever you want every now and then.

Girls aren't going to expect you to have 10,000 followers but the response from my sisters and female friends who have their pick of guys has been along the lines of "uhh, i've never had a guy without an ig try to get with me", "wait why doesn't he have one, was he banned or is he an old guy or something", and "ahahahaha next". Maybe its different in other countries, if you know of at least 2 "naturals" (not from the pua/redpill community) who do great in the dating game without IG then you can go ahead and join them but at least in the US its not an option and you're either living in some rural area where everyone knows everyone, severely socially inexperienced, or delusional if you think otherwise.

I know the older guys will disagree with me on social media, but they'll probably agree that society is rapidly moving away from being open and welcoming to new people and moving towards rigid and closed off cliques. I don't say social media is a must if you're under 25 because of women I say it because you need to assume that "who you know, not what you know" isn't going to be a leg-up for getting a job, it's going to be the standard for EVERYTHING and the wider your social contacts are the better your life will be and a few thousand guys in the manosphere adding no social media on top of their no fap, no pillow, no carbs, no shampoo regimen isn't going to change that. You either adapt or get ran the fuck over.

Back to the girls issue, i dont have time for a full post but put 2 + 2 together.

-dhv
-reducing flakes
-dread game
-social proof
-easiest/safest contact for a girl to give you when short on time or under peer pressure
-networking
-breaking customer frames

IG is a very powerful tool, dont let the manosphere echochamber blind you to the advantages it gives you for messing around with it while on the toilet or in a uber

This forum is definitely filled with guys who are in their 40s. Not having instagram is a huge red flag if you are a millennial. Your follower to following ratio is important too. This can be overcome with money and bravado, but it is not a positive thing like old guys still believe.

RE: Instagram in 2019: why the world is fucked beyond repair
Social media apps are a waste of time beyond keeping touch with intermational friends. Studies show the more time you spend glued to your screen the more unhappy you'll tend to be. Go figure.

With regards to Instagram, it's probably the worst of the worst when it comes to platforms. It's basically the closest thing we have to the Black Mirror social credit system, and we all know how that turned out. Yes, it's a fictional TV show, but that type of reality is not too far off in the direction we're headed.

Can't recall ever losing bang from not having IG. There are plenty of other channels of communication the girl can use to contact me. Bottom line is that Instagram is for narcisstic attention whores, and even if 99% of the human population were on it, I still wouldn't give a shit. A man treads his own own path.

While social media do have it's benefits like branching out your business, the vast majority of users do it to take a hit of that dopamine drug. That narcissistic ego trip within the digital world, It causes more harm then good.

I use instagram to check out locations by searching the location and seeing what the photos are like.

Noticed that some of the major cities in Asia (Shanghai, Hongkong) are being spammed relentlessly by bots with pictures of people with dreadlocks and weed.
All by different accounts to make it hard to stop.

I saw a picture from a class room over there recently and one of the kids had a huge weed leaf on his hoodie.

Pretty subversive. I wonder who would be doing that.

Well, there's nothing wrong in using social media itself as it's really helping sometimes. I'm using, for example, https://zen-promo.com/comment_bot_instagram bot and do not regret at all. It's helping me to make my account more attractive for other subscribers by means of several tools embedded to the application.
