Yeah it's rude. Or 'up their own backside' as my mate would say.
It's part of Instagram that people want to know where clothes or home stuff is from. Especially if a huge part of your Instagram image is about what you, your house and your dc look like. It's part and parcel of it to tag things with where it's from, or put it on the description, or politely answer if someone is kind enough to ask. I mean, wow, They like your taste, how very annoying of them.
It's also a bit thick as, now the algorithm has changed from chronological, the more comments and interaction a pic gets, the more people will see it and hopefully like it. So people leaving comments asking where they bought theor dress, or whatever, is beneficial to them.
Listen me. I don't have a bloody clue when it comes to Instagram I know that is rude though.
Ugh. I can’t stand the “perfect image insta mums”. Why do they assume that I want their stuff/ want to look like them? How very arrogant. I have my own dresses- cheers. Give me a comedy insta mum any day but not the ones who are so perfect even their “not perfect” photos have been completely staged but we all have to go along with pretending it’s not!
There's been long and numerous threads on here that have been saying they should declare where they have got anything they feature on their Insta from. So that'll be why they are doing it. Pre-empting all the queries, making it clear like people wanted. So job's a good one, then, surely.
Don't find it snobbish, just very passive aggressive. They know that people are getting wise to the fact that they are salespeople and it is a snarky, pre-emptive slap down to anyone having the temerity to ask a reasonable question.
I think any posts should just list the suppliers of clothes/make up essentially per a magazine.
The word ad needs to be clearly marked at the top per ASA requirements. Not buried in amongst another 20 hashtags. That would stop general enquiries
Anyone who doesn't want Joe Public asking where they got stuff if it is not an ad should make that post private. If not, people will ask. It is up to the instagrammer of they want to answer but it would be reasonable to assume that a public post has been posted on the basis that the public might comment
Springsprangsprung - I don't think it'll be a "slap down to those having the temerity to ask a question". More doing as everyone has asked.I say this because past threads have been saying they want Instagrammers to say where they get stuff from. Even if it is their own,as that way it's clear when it's an ad or not/if it's their own or if they've been given it by a brand. It really does seem that they can't do right whatever they do.
