It’s the end of April already! Just how? How are we almost half way through the year already? It’s absolute madness! Anyway, I hope you’re having a good Sunday so far and if you’re enjoying for Bank Holiday Weekend like I am, I hope you have a lovely extra day off.
Today’s Sunday Saves is focusing on the theme of social media changes: if you’ve been living under a social media rock recently, you’ll know that Instagram has been involved in quite a lot of drama and bloggers have came under fire not only from magazines and social media applications but even from each other so this theme seemed very appropriate.
1) My Life in Rose Tinted Glasses (What is the Instagram Shadow Ban?)
The words “shadow ban” have been flying around the past few days and honestly, until Francesca’s post, I had no idea what it meant. If you’re a little like me and need to be kept up to date with the latest changes and troubles to Instagram, this post is for you. It’s well explained without being too overly detailed, very easy read.
As bloggers, there will always be a fine line when writing posts for companies who have sent you products. Some want more than others; some try and get you to change your opinion, some just want you to tell the truth and others try and get around it by asking you to put in a follow link. Like Francesca’s post, I had no idea what the difference was between the follow and no follow so if you’re looking a hand on what’s safe and what isn’t, keep this post from Maria saved in your favourites.
3) Kirsty Leanne (Why I Agree With Social Media Algorithm Changes)
Even when I just seen the title of Kirsty’s latest post, I thought “Oh that’s going to cause some controversy!” but as far as I am aware, it hasn’t. Reading her post, her points make sense and she sees this as a challenge, not a down fall. If you want to be successful, you have to work for it and easy engagement is not working for it. So if you’ve been feeling let down by the whole Instagram fiasco, go read Kirsty’s post and see if she can change your mind.
Well that’s all for this week’s Sunday Saves. Remember to click on everyone’s links and leave a little comment.. If you’ve missed any of my other Sunday Saves, you’ll find them all right here and feel free to have a look!
