Clement Greenberg This is Greenberg's breakthrough essay fromwritten for the Partisan Review when he was twenty-nine years of age and at the time more involved with literature than with painting. He came, later, to reject much of the essay -- notably the definition of kitsch which he later believed to be ill thought out as, indeed, it is.
I finally had a platform to get my work seen, tell my stories, share my life and get inspired by those of others. It was all about creativity and art and The Work, it was fair and ethical and just awesome!
What once used to be about content and originality is now reduced to some meaningless algorithm dynamics and who has the time and the cash to trick this system wins the game.
I tried to play it as ethically as possible but when you are pushed to a corner gasping for air sometimes you have to set ethical aside if you want to survive. I still care about doing things right. The advertising world is shifting and we influencers are now basically walking billboards for brands and companies because through us they can reach consumers our followers in a much more genuine and effective way.
They want the numbers! The bigger the brand the higher your numbers have to be. Usually it works like this: It has to stop! In the old days instagram used to work chronologically. If you posted at 3pm and a guy with 1M followers posted at 4pm, your pic would be seen first.
The dirtiest way to do this is of course to buy your way to the top. I was never able to go this far luckily but I witnessed so many people shamelessly do this from the very beginning across all industries! I stopped using it 3 weeks ago and ironically instagram had it shut down last week!
I know tons of accounts that all post the same things, the same places, with the same style. When I scroll down my homepage the sight of yet another moody picture of Iceland or Lake Braies guilty! Some of the big guys on IG today have hundreds of thousands of followers because when they were there at the very beginning, they were doing something new, something creative, something ORIGINAL.
Today though,forget about that shit! To get feature you have to use their hashtags, tag them in your picture and following them is suggested!
There are tons of these accounts and many have big followings so if they repost one of your pictures their followers will see it and if they like it they might come check out your profile and possibly follow you.
Clean, easy and ethical for a change! I emailed my portfolio to some of these featured accounts a few months back and i received an alarming amount of replies where they were asking me for money to get featured! Imagine if MTV would start asking money to artists to air their music videos…wtf!
They are the ones that should be paying and thanking you! Usually this is how it works: That way our engagement looks higher. With time some of the people in these pods became friends and we met each other around the world in real life.
A few months after pods started existing instagram noticed something was up and rumors went around that they were trying to stop pods…So what happened next?
Eventually someone figured out the secret formula to trick the algorithm: This is how it works: If you want to be involved you have to post at the same time of everyone else the most used time slot is around 2pm nyc time. Everyday you are posting you put your name in one of the lisits created in this chats, you keep your list of all the other people posting in hand, go on instagram, and once 3.
How the fuck did we got to this???? When I found out about this bs something broke in me. The amount of time people are investing in playing these tricks is scary, this time could be used to work on our art, on our happiness, or on just fucking living real life for fuck sake!
Anything good and durable takes time and hard work to built and trickery is not a durable nor ethical strategy. What this has become is fucking everyone over in the long run! I met some of my good friends today thanks to instagram.
I have work opportunities that I could only dream about before. I found myself caught up into a vicious cycle, playing the game to keep afloat and keep doing what I like to do, but I am sick and tired of playing games. This is not why I started posting on instagram, this is not what I want my life to be about.
I learnt early on to not let my self-esteem be affected by numbers. Instagram and the evil algorithm? Now you have all the info I have, and you can make whatever you want with it.ASTRUD GILBERTO.
