Dictionary defines influence as “the capacity to have an effect on the character, development, or behaviour of someone or something, or the effect itself.”

In the past, influencers were rich and powerful people. Those were the nobility first. The kind and its court. As the amount of people grow, there was a bigger chance for non-nobility to influence the opinions of people.

Then the influence is distributed to a non rich people. The so called TikTok and Instagram influencers.

The issue is as more and more influencers come, the less likely is for people to fact check what everyone is saying and less likely for an accountability when someone is laying.

Influencers are usually not rich and they use opportunities they have to earn money ethically and unethically.

There are more and more situations where finally the law is catching up and influencers are being held accountable and jailed for false advertisement.

So next time you stumble across influencer, first carefully fact check their claims before you decide to trust them.

The domain pointed yesterday to a page with one character “X”. Today it redirects to the twitter domain and soon we might see the dead of the bird and the birth of the symbol “X”. This change will be followed carefully and we can all learn from the mistakes Elon Musk will do during this transition. He already is very famous with the mistakes he did during his first weeks in the company. Can the company survive such a transformation is another open question? There are already some competitors like Mastodon and Instagram very own Threads. But the vision of Elon Musk is to turn this app more like WeChat, the Chinese mega app that combines many features. The issue with such a combination of too many businesses and too many regulations might play a crucial role in the downfall of the company. Many times s
