Here are Some Incredibly Annoying Interactions With Social Media “Influencers”

This whole “influencer” culture absolutely baffles me.

These people are famous for what?

And we’re supposed to follow them why?

Plus, apparently a whole lot of them are totally annoying. Are these people serious?

Let’s go to the evidence…

1. Free tickets needed.

"Influencer" wanted free tickets to a CHARITY event from ChoosingBeggars

2. Free rent, please!

Bachelorette contestant wants free rent to be "live-in influencer" from ChoosingBeggars

3. That’s kind of sad…

World-famous model will promote your club for a $25 bottle of vodka. from ChoosingBeggars

4. Gimme gimme gimme.

If you give me your products for free, I will write good reviews because I’m a social media influencer (This person wrote that instead of an actual review. They thought the review section is where you can solicit business) from ChoosingBeggars

5. Shaming.

A beauty influencer posted screenshots of her demanding PR for a $17 eyeshadow palette in an attempt to shame an indie brand, instead she just came across as catty and childish from ChoosingBeggars

6. Thanks, but no thanks.

Makeup Brand DMed beauty guru about sending her their product for free and in turn she would post a video using the product on her page. The company replied rudely when she told them she has a fee for doing that. from ChoosingBeggars

7. Sounds like a scam to me…

An ‘influencer’ I know from ChoosingBeggars

8. I’ll give you exposure!

My friend does nails from home and entitled “influencer” wants to trade exposure for free nails, takes to insulting her job and kids when her offer is declined. Will post backstory in comments from ChoosingBeggars

9. “Oh boy” is right.

"Influencer’s" Agent asking for a free wedding package. Oh boy. from ChoosingBeggars

10. What a deal.

I sell spaghetti themed merchandise on Pinterest and some CB wanted me to pay for social influence. from ChoosingBeggars

Have you had any infuriating interactions with so-called “influencers”?

Tell us all about it in the comments. Ugh!

A Miner in Russia’s Arctic Circle Takes Beautiful Photos of Foxes During Breaks From Work

In the north-eastern Chukotka region of Russia’s Arctic, one photographer finds the animals living there and captures them with his camera on his breaks from mining.

Posted by Kislov Ivan on Friday, May 11, 2018

The environment is bleak, and sparsely populated with ethnic Russians, Chukchis, and other indigenous peoples.

There are virtually no roads and people here survive mostly by hunting reindeer.

Posted by Kislov Ivan on Friday, September 22, 2017

 

But wildlife thrives and Ivan Kislov has no problems finding it for his fantastic photos.

Posted by Kislov Ivan on Monday, September 18, 2017

Kislov lives in the north-eastern port city of Magadan and works as a mining engineer in Chukotka.

Posted by Kislov Ivan on Monday, September 18, 2017

 

He told Bored Panda that he likes to take “relaxation from routine,” go on “hikes to inaccessible places, raftings,” and walking to “observe the wildlife.” 

Posted by Kislov Ivan on Monday, September 18, 2017

 

He enjoys these activities on his breaks during long shifts at the mines.

Mining for oil, natural gas, coal, gold and tungsten is a major part of the economy here.

Posted by Kislov Ivan on Monday, September 11, 2017

 

He often finds bear, deer and wolves, but it’s the foxes who let their natural curiosity keep them from retreating.

Posted by Kislov Ivan on Monday, September 11, 2017

 

Kislov says they will let him get close-in so he can shoot with wide-angle and telephoto lenses for amazing shots.

Всем огромное спасибо за поздравления!!! Очень приятно.Снежный лис.Чукотка.Ноябрь 2014г.

Posted by Kislov Ivan on Tuesday, August 15, 2017

 

His photos show all the playfulness and beauty of these animals against the stark environment of the Russian Arctic.

What an absolutely wonderful hobby? But we want to know what you think! Would you get so close to take these beautiful pics?

This is How You Can Change Your Facebook Settings to Keep Your Photos from Facial Recognition AI

Whether it is a picture with your pals at the bar or a selfie at the gym, chances are you have probably uploaded a photo or two to Facebook (or Instagram, which Facebook owns). While it surely feels good to get likes and comments from friends, the flip side is that everything you put out on the Internet can be stolen, hacked or altered.

Today’s technology makes it even easier for people and companies to take advantage of your private data. In fact, a New York Times report recently revealed that a company called Clearview AI used three billion images gathered from millions of websites to create a facial-recognition app with a massive searchable database of faces.

And they’re licensing the software to the police.

Though companies like Clearview unfortunately exist (really, what they’re doing should be illegal), you can take several measures to ensure your photos remain private (or at least more private). Once you’re on Facebook, navigate to Settings > Privacy and look for the option that asks if you want search engines outside of Facebook to link to your profile.

Once you turn that off, Clearview (and other data-munching intruders) won’t be able to take hold of your photos (although that will only apply to new photos, they’ve already got your old ones from before you changed the setting).

Other safety tips that can help protect your content include limiting the visibility of future posts to only friends. You can also make sure only your friends can search for your profile using personal contact information such as an e-mail address or phone number.

Changing your “Timeline and Tagging” settings can also do wonders in keeping your data hidden. And if you have friends who tend to post embarrassing photos without consulting you first, you can turn on the review option. This puts the power of posting back in your hands.

Of course, most people maintain at least a few social media accounts. That means you should also take the time to check the security settings on your Instagram, Twitter and even YouTube accounts.

Start out by making a comprehensive list of all the social networks in which you share content. Once you have exhausted your brain scrolling through the pages of apps in your phone, take the time to do a security debriefing of sorts. Perhaps it would be best to make your SnapChat private, so cyberstalkers or your parents don’t see what you’re up to on a Saturday night at 2 a.m.

Just a thought.

Tweets From People Who Are Struggling with Adulting

Being an adult is kind of a drag. When you’re a kid, you dream every day about being able to drive a car, get out of the house, have your own money, etc. Then one day it happens and you realize it’s not that much fun, and also why your parents hate you and your siblings so much.

So on that positive note, let’s take a look at some tweets from people who are starting to realize that being an adult ain’t all that it’s cracked up to be.

Enjoy These Terrible Photoshops from Russian Social Media

Nobody pulls off a poorly photoshopped picture quite like the Russians. These curiosities were taken from the Russian social network Odnoklassniki, which means “Schoolmates.” Odnoklassniki is a popular network for old friend and classmates to stay in touch – it’s basically local Facebook for Russia and other former Soviet states.

Let’s just hope some love connections were made.
