At the bleeding edge of  technology,the real message has truly been lost in the ocean of social media followers. That insta girl is making headlines with her million of followers. And all of that. 
(the insta fame monster)

Its a shame how today success is been measure by the numbers of followers on Instagram and Facebook likes, The insta girl with 1.5 million followers, 18 thousand likes per photo with 200 comments is now the success of today. I am sure the headlines grab your attention, i was invited to a fashion function where two social media guru guest speaker  gave every body an inside of how to grow your digital space, this include social medial for business purpose and also be aware of the dirty business of today social media success.
Before now i have always wonder why my IG followers and Facebook likes don’t add up, I stop wondering from today. Because i have learn a thing or two, so i thought as this is my main digital space for sharing the things i love and bringing you a genuine content for ongoing conversation, i will always be here when Facebook and Instagram hash tag fades out. Why not share with my readers so they can learn something as well. As much as i love see beautiful photos on IG , it has become a bloody hard work. (i cant keep up)
Where does this get off ?
Some of the point and note i took during the speaking session, what does your Instagram/Facebook says about you ? (Lol i freak out at first). A major blogger which was not named during the session, is said to have employed a social media manager to help grow her followers. But what exactly did the social media manager did to gain millions of followers over night ? one of the guy who was a speaker said what is legal and allowed in the industry was done. READ HERE PLEASE (You should start rolling your eyes as you are reading this)  i was also given this link too. 
Another point taken down. Instagram is now a daily job for some people, (Oh, i did not even know this). According to one speaker, there are people making money from it every minutes of the day, so don’t take it for granted. 
Last point taken, this is the annoying part i did not like, if you don’t have more than 250k followers and over 5 thousand likes per photos you are just an ordinary blogger like me, that means you are not famous. Brands are only interested in high numbers. (No wonder why some blogger ego are on auto skyrocket day by day).  
As i end this post, i was just wondering what the hell we all use to do before Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and now that crazy snap chat. Does any one know ? 
In my opinion, i am not crazy about over night success, good work will definitely speak for it self when the time comes. I am genuinely happy to keep the interaction going, instead of acting it up. I am not sure what the future will hold regards this subject matter, but i can just think how people we no longer have a real communication anymore, and everyone will have to communicate via social media through the lance of our telephone and tablets.  
Back to this outfit, which i wore to the event.

Wearing red is one way to get a red attention, painting the town red is even better. Red really brighten up the mood and guaranteed to turn heads. Red and nude is a pass mark!

The other part, i will bring to you more details in my next post,  how to Grow your Instagram followers organically and keep the interaction going.

I have to go…

See you all soon.

P.S.  This post is not to have a go at any fashion blogger, just sharing what i learn from others.

    You look stunning Sophia! I love your dress. Yes red and nude is the perfect combo πŸ™‚ Yes sadly it's all about followers and likes these days. I followed some blogger on Bloglovin. She had ca 5000 followers for many years and all of a sudden over 40000 (in a few days!!). All of them fake πŸ˜€ It's the same with Instagram.

    That red dress is gorgeous! I love the whole combination. The thing about social media numbers is completely true, brands want to see and recognise that what they pay for will be spread to thousands. Unless you hit the big time, it's a struggle.

    You are a stunner in red! I love the draping and fit. I'll be honest, I don't understand the social media pressure. I feel it and I succumb to it, but I'll never be a "big" blogger.

    I LOVE this post. I can see how much social media has taken over my life, and sometimes I wonder what it would be like if I wasn't so involved with it. As much as I love blogging, I need that digital break sometimes. It will be interesting to see how social media evolves over time. PS. Your dress is absolutely stunning!

    Beautiful dress this color looks stunning on you. As for social media, it is really a tricky thing. Success should be measured by how hard one works and the result of that work. That is how success is measured in other fields. However, in the social media, the result is measured in those numbers which is why people latch on to numbers to define their "success." In the end, I do not think it is truly healthy for anyone, but it is sadly part of the game.

    I love this dress! You look stunning!!! This sounds really interesting. I never really pay attention to how many followers people have but I do know that people like to add people just to have them follow them back and then they will unfollow. I never really understood that? Anyways, have an amazing weekend!!!

    You look beautiful in red dear. Great dress! I see some bloggers with hundreds of thousands of followers — some I don't get, especially the ones with no website at all, but oh well. Social media is tricky and people follow and unfollow everyday on Instagram, the same with Twitter, etc.

    Good work will definitely speak for itself, I do agree with you. I'm just an ordinary blogger :)))
    I don't want to hire content o marketing managers, I don't like so much FB, I don't want to loose contact to reality and my family πŸ™‚
    You look always superb!
    Have a lovely weekend ahead!


  13. August 22, 2015 / 9:21 am

    You look sizzling hot in this red dress πŸ™‚ It scares me how much success is judged from social media followings, especially as a blogger

    Oh I can identify with that,I'm not very good at social media networking even though it's true that they are used to judge success often these days.Sad.Anyway you look lovely and so chic

  15. August 22, 2015 / 4:06 pm

    I love that dress!

    Totally agree with you its a shame how its all about numbers and likes. One could also argue about the fact how it has become more accessible for normal people to become "big" online, by the click of a bottom you become part of a mini movement.

    But yeah!!! I don't want to leave without saying that your dress is just too stunning and the shoes are to die for =)

    Dear Sophia, thank you so much for this post! Now I'm once more happy about that I blog especially for my pleasure and because I love it to write πŸ™‚ Nevertheless especially you deserve many many followers as you have not only a fantastic sense of style but also the content of your posts is always smart and outstanding. As usual I love your outfit – the dress is perfect! Have a happy weekend!

    I love your Outfit πŸ™‚ your style is – as usual – simply perfect, feminine and chic πŸ™‚ Loved to read the post, an I have to confess, since I dodn't have any social media Managers like 95% of us, it's really hard to be always online and stay in concat on all social media plattforms..especially ig deserves a lot of work πŸ˜€ nevertheless we all enjoy Blogging and I suppose we give our best to stay in contact everywhere πŸ™‚

    It's so easy to get lost in all the numbers and to play the comparison game but you just have to try and tune all that out. Do what makes sense for you and your blogging brand and the rest will happen however it is supposed to.

    I need that dress in my life. Wow!! Off to check it out! You look gorgeous, Sophie!
