Social media Queen is speaking up about this change on Instagram…
It’s no secret that Kim Kardashian West is the reigning is one of the biggest influences on social media and the beauty/business world, but now she’s opening about something she feels could help many people.
While attending the New York Times DealBook with Andrew Ross and her Mom, Kris Jenner, Kim spoke on how she feels the proposed removing of likes on Instagram could benefit not only the app, but mental health as well. “As far as mental health… I think taking the likes away and taking that aspect away from Instagram would be really beneficial for people,” she said.
“I know the Instagram team has been having a bunch of conversations with people to get everyone’s take on that and they’re taking it really seriously, and that makes me happy.” She continued, “I find myself to be extremely mentally strong and I have people who are obsessed with the comments, and I find that to be really unhealthy.”
Speaking on her own use of the app, Kim said “It is tricky and when I raise my kids, I think about screen time, phone time, what to post, what not to post. Even posting things in real-time, I learned from a bad experience I had when I was robbed that people knew my every move, what I had, where I was, what I was doing, and that, to me, really changed the things that I post.”
She concluded, “I still want people to feel like they’re on that journey with me, but I might video something and then post it when I’ve left the location for privacy.” It’s great to see that Kim is speaking out about this because many people could benefit from this change; people shouldn’t be looked down upon because of their like amounts.
