It appears we haven't quite finished workshopping the ethical issues of 'influencing' on Instagram: disclose of advertising, the exploitation of minors and the similarities to MLM schemes.

Garfunkel she clarified in the previous thread that she considered she was defamed in the instamums 4th thread. It was subsequently deleted.

Oh what a surprise, a #dearmumsnet torch song

I bloody hope one of her PR team steps in quickly and wrestles her phone off her before she really does herself some damage.

Honestly. I am a bit of a professional cynic and I was quite won over by MP who came on and listened and engaged in a very candid and transparent way. Now she is spending the evening in a useful manner tagging Tom Cruise Grin in her stories with no harm to either side. And still the same old sad sacks are trying to wring another two second of fame and a free toaster out of being either a professional victim or one of their handmaidens. Get. A. Life.

MP is what I hoped all the others would be back when I clicked follow. Funny, witty, sincere and seemingly herself. Tom Cruise on a unicorn. Brilliant stories!

MP currently at a Gary Barlow concert, that’s more offensive than anything else I’ve seen the instamums do to be honest! 😝

I just looked up the hashtag dearmumsnet on Instagram. There's actually only 16 posts... but interesting the most recent is by an account called cookies_kimbles and MP has commented. Quite interesting and not what I think they started the # for.

I’m sure MP posted saying she was going to be working alongside cookies_kimbles, I can’t see it now so it might have been on stories.

#dearmumsnet didn't really catch on did it? Oh well, there's the £84-86 'self care retreat' this weekend so I'm sure any disappointment will be gotten over soon (with the help of a life coach).

These threads have been so thought provoking - and there is more "sisterhood" here than in the blind loyalty demanded on the Insta threads. Would happily share a good bottle of wine with any one of you - good conversation, healthy discussion and interesting disagreement win every day!

I hope she was #gifted those Gary Barlow tickets and didn't spend her own money on them.

I am so thankful for this thread, I now know I am not alone in the way I think/feel about things IG related. What I’m personally aghast is 1. The mental health ‘experts’ and 2. The fan girls. 1. I have been diagnosed with PND and PTSD and to see accounts announcing they can help with such illnesses despite not having ANY relevant qualifications is abhorrent! The bees knees account being one (of many i know) who seems to think a retreat with someone who ‘has had a shit life’ is treatment?!? 2. The fan girls of accounts mentioned here are so vicious it means that even if you have a well thought out point to make you either a) don’t for fear of being shouted down or b) you make the point, get accused of being a troll, engage in conversation but then get deleted
