Sometimes, being "the famous Instagram" is not so much fun. Make sure you have millions of fan admins. And yes, brands can sponsor you money for display on your account. But the dark side of the social media stardom is that you are harassing enthusiastic fans. Many users say that Instagram is a harassment problem that has failed to work with the company.
This year, at the 20,000 seat center stage in the Web Summit Tech Conference in Lisbon, I participated in a panel about social media with UFC fighter Peggy Vanzand and model / actress Charlotte McCain, who have 1.9 million and 1.4 million Instagram fans respectively.
While most fans just want the best for celebrities followed by them, some of them can be terrible and dangerous, McKinney told me.
"I recently made an incident with a fan who had followed me for years and was trying to find me, and he got my parents." She went to my parents' job "" So she stood up for me and I was really scared and you came to realize that you are putting yourself out there, but she is your family and friends. My niece, I do not want to share her relationship, because she really can be scary. They can be really messy and try and find you. "
"Thank God I was not there," she said.
McKinney has developed an interesting strategy that makes life more difficult for her stacker: she has posted pictures on time delay, so that when a new photo appears, people can not come in front of her.
"Geotagging is really important for you wherever you are Once you leave"She said." Sometimes you are giving your place after the hotel hotel, or vacation, or the event you are working on. So for me, I guarantee if there is a need to shout at a hotel or some other place [to do it] When I'm Running. "
"It's difficult because they are fans, these are people who worship you, so you do not want to be meaningless for them, but it's definitely a barrier."
UK The trick used by the located youtube star Brighton Alfie Days is different, whose social media life time is in real time. He told Business Insider that he would not be able to go to a supermarket or a Starbucks building without a building, because his fans are based on their Twitter, Snapchat or Instagram, and will show up for volunteers, where they will know that they suffer
People should think twice about harassing the vanguard. It draws people to live. Her UFC record lost 7 wins, 4 lost and zero. But people do offensive comments about her on her Instagram page. "I found that the thick skin was very difficult for the first time and knew that it would be negative comments. I do not need to change this image to fit until you are right for yourself, and to be happy with your brand and your image. You will get a positive feedback, but at any time you will be people because you are important. "
"When I have almost 'stalker-typed' fans, I'm usually with a bunch of professional fighters, and I know I can beat them so that makes it a bit easier." But that's it At times it's scary. There are no steps to follow in every step, when someone is seen in the hotel to take pictures with me, all you have to do first is security and people who will follow you everywhere. "
Vanzent has an interesting personalized list for those days when insults and guns are very high "" They still pay attention, and you still have issues. "
