So, you've probably caught wind of Instagram's new feature. If not, let me break it down for you. They are introducing ads into our beloved Stories, 🥴 but it's not all sunshine and roses. There's a big privacy question
looming overhead. And if there’s one thing we love more than a good feed, it's maintaining our digital privacy.
Now, the original article from Wired UK (you can peep here) detailed how this whole situation could potentially interfere with our online personas. But let’s dive into the nitty-gritty and get you equipped with the info you truly need.
First off, as we step into this digital age even deeper, our data has become the new currency. Advertisers are keen, perhaps a bit too keen, to get their mitts on it. With Instagram Stories now being their new playground, we've got to play smart, very smart.
My advice? Regularly check and update your privacy settings. Don’t be that person who gets blindsided because they didn’t check their settings ⚙️.
I mean, remember that time when we had to decide between inbound and outbound marketing? It's kinda like that. Choices. Choices that could reshape our online trajectories.
In a world brimming with ads (Instagram 👀), we have to be vigilant, proactive, and above all, informed. So next time you're uploading that killer Insta Story, just remember: someone's always watching.

Peace + love.
