What a Businesswoman!

Social networking has spread around the world with unbelievable speed. Admit it or not, its influence on the netizens practically dictates how we do business, conduct ourselves - generally, how we live our online lives. To some extent, it molds us.

If you’re an active social-media user, you can’t deny the phenomenon that is Instagram. " Its online photo-sharing, video-sharing and social networking service enables users to take pictures and videos, apply digital filters to them, and share them on various social networking services, such as Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Flickr." What one can't communicate in words, some photos make the task easier.

The immense popularity of Instagram has captured millions of users worldwide. To some people, Instagram is heaven-sent, as they are able to enjoy its huge privileges. Rightly or wrongly, it has become subject for abuse. And whether they admit it or not, some celebrities are the ones who are guilty of this abuse.

Merchant Followers MF of celebrities use the opportunity to promote their products on the celebrities' Instagram feed knowing that their huge following get to see MF products. Needless to say, it is surprisingly cheap, especially for the cost-conscious entrepreneur. In return, some MF give celebrities some products for free.

Very enterprising TV Host TH is one notoriously known for milking this opportunity. To be able to cut cost, TH has now reportedly gone to using Instagram as a business platform, without a sweat. Allegedly, she asks her MF for some product samples such as clothes, food, and even pricey ones such as watches and at times even GC's, too. The items have to be delivered to her first before she posts their pictures on her wall. Reportedly, TH has gone overboard, asking as much as 50% discount for travel fare.

Yes, it is - social media has redefined public's perception of what social graces and etiquette are all about.

    2. Harbatera means asking. Some online sellers are aggressive and wouldn't really take no for an answer by flooding the celebrities ig account. Marami paring mabait at nakakatulong kesa nangaabuso.

    3. S is nice to online sellers. She does not ask... mahirap tukuyin ang BI na ito dahil napakaraming artista na nagpapasalamat at nagpopost ng items.

    2. sellers are expecting them to somehow endorse their products through their posts. There is nothing wrong with that cz di naman sila humihingi, kusang binigyan. ang masama, yung piadalhan mo tapos talagang never kang ma mention man lang. it's nice to know that some of the stars, even the big ones undertand that they are helping sellers. malaking tulong sa kanila.

    3. Yes mga nagmamalimos in a more hayag way. Kahiya!

    4. Mga barubal. Walang pakundangan kung humingi o magparamdam. Mas may pera kayo karamihan sa mga sellers BUMILI na lang kayo hindi yung MANGGAGAMIT kayo. ANG MASAKLAP ANG IBA MGA FANS ANG NAGAGATASAN nG MGA ITO. Pangalanan na yan mga yan!

  17. Yung isang stylist naman, nanghihingi ng para kuno sa mga alaga nya. Mamahalin pa hinihingi nito.ok na sana pero ang ending, walang pinost na sinuot ng artistang pinagsasabi nya and worst , matapos nyang humingi, waka syang ipopost at wala nang reply pag finollow up mo. kapal nila, imbes na tumulong sa sellers. Nanghuhuthot, nang aabuso.grabehh.buti pa yung ibang malalakung artista. Ayaw nang humingi.nag popost pa pag pinadalhan mo.

    ReplyDelete
  18. May kilala akong wagas kung makahingi! Hindi lng pa isa isa, kahit lims pa im sure ok lang sa sellers pero ito, pag binasa mo mga messages nya sa ibat ibang sellers ganito. I want one for all my fingers. I want 5 of those. Ganyan ang tema kapal!! At kung di pinadala lahat, ayaw ata mag post. Nasa wall din nya yung pagtatanong ng ilang sellers. Makspal to pramus.stylist ito ni v. .basahin ang mga messages nya sa sellers na na uuto nya.kawawang sellers.wala namang maitulong ito sa kanila kasi feeling sikat lang ito

    1. totoo ito. sa isang gabi, lima ata sa mga sellers ang hinihingian ng sangkatutak. hindi naman ito sikat. nakikisakay lang. kung ikaw seller, ano gagawin mo? isang design ng singsing humihingi ng tig lilima...i bebenta pa ata lols.. mga ganito yung hindi ok. pero karamihan naman ng celebrities are nice enough to help online sellers. good yan kasi nakakatulong pa sila magkaroon ng pamumuhay din yung ibang tao. all in all, positive ito. mangilan ngilan lang naman ang mga nang aabuso. at yang si A. she is very very nice. di naman nanghihingi eh, kusang binibigyan so kudos to her actually

  25. kung isipin mo naman din, sellers via IG tags on the accounts of the celebrities. so mga "freebies" na hinihingi ng mga celebs na yan would be sort of a "TF". sellers get to have exposure, celebs get something for helping them with the exposure. win-win lang naman if si TF naman would give the seller a big boost, may right naman siya to demand.

  26. I still can't get it. Pero yung isang actress S nagsabi wag muna magbigay kasi hindi na yata niya ma post sa dami, or in deference to typhoon victims. Suwerte naman nila, mga branded, mga yummy imported food. Pero ang dami din nag post na sellers, nag comment asking for contact details so they can send, iba nag pro promote ng shop nila.

  30. Maraming artista lalo na sa instagram ang ganyan. Yung iba nanghihingi pa ng cash plus products para lang ipromote sila. Mga online sellers naman na iba porket alam na kasi ang address ng mga taartits tuloy tuloy ang pagpapadala sa mga artista tapos kukulitin ang artista na ipost ang items nila.
