Navigating Instagram Friendships: The Do's and Don'ts

We love sharing our lives, passions, and sometimes even our lunches on the gram.(Thanks to our social media earning app!) But amidst the filters and likes, how do we navigate the delicate dance of Instagram friendships without stepping on any digital toes? We’ve got your back with some essential do's and don'ts. Let's dive in!

The Do's:

  • Be Genuine

Authenticity is the name of the game on Instagram. Whether you're commenting on a friend's post or sliding into their DMs, be yourself. People can sniff out fakeness from a mile away, so keep it real.

  • Became a Social Butterfly

Don't be a silent lurker! Show some love by liking, commenting, and sharing your friends' content. It's the digital version of a high-five, and who doesn't love a good virtual fist bump?

  • Support Your Squad

Your friend just started a new business or launched a passion project? Show your support by shouting it from the digital rooftops! Share their posts, give them a shoutout in your stories, and spread the love like confetti.

  • Respect Boundaries

Remember that not everyone is comfortable sharing every aspect of their lives online. Respect your friends' boundaries and never pressure them to share more than they're comfortable with.

  • Spread Positivity

In a world where negativity can easily creep in, be a beacon of positivity. Leave uplifting comments, send encouraging messages, and sprinkle some virtual sunshine wherever you go.

The Don'ts:

  • Ghosting is a No-Go

If your friend reaches out to you on Instagram, don't leave them hanging! Even a simple "thanks for reaching out" goes a long way. Nobody likes to feel ignored in the digital universe.

  • Avoid Overwhelming DMs

While it's great to slide into your friends' DMs for a chat, avoid bombarding them with messages. Respect their time and space, and remember that not everyone lives on Instagram 24/7.

  • Steer Clear of Comparison

It's easy to fall into the comparison trap on Instagram, but remember that everyone's journey is unique. Avoid comparing your life to others' highlight reels and focus on celebrating your own wins instead.

  • Don't Feed the Trolls

If you encounter negativity or trolls in the comments section, resist the urge to engage. Instead, report the comment and move on. Ain't nobody got time for online drama!

  • Refrain from Over-Editing: We all love a good filter but don't go overboard with the editing. Embrace your natural beauty and remember that imperfections are what make us human.
