Its not weird to have your account on private, honestly I think it would be nice for a change instead of everyone knowing ( or at least think they know ) what your doing and your life. Following someone or liking an image has become almost as if it holds its own currency, there are people I know very very well and will mention a post that you have made yet never like any of your posts. I find it odd, but I guess each to their own and if thats what they feel like doing and it works for them then fine. Social media should not be such a focus but I guess considering it has bought the entire world and the wealth of information right into your pocket, it kind of does hold a lot of power, both good and bad! But when you have your account set on private know that most people unless its a good friend won’t bother following you, remember you are and will become who you follow!
We have all read that no one posts everything on instagram, its always a little filtered to make sure everything appears the way it should, now with everyone around the world doing it you can imagine that before you know it the bar is being lifted everyday!
If you want fame and fortune then having an account private because you don’t want your family or employer to know who you actually are, will only give you privacy. Sure the constant DM’s some that truly make your day and others that make you feel like you should delete your account get a bit much at times but overall you get out of it whatever you put into it.
Just like writing these posts, having an outlet is for some a very good way to express yourself!
