The social media industry has been talking about new Instagram strategy for a while and to be fair the talks never stop. The most recent changes are all about hiding likes and Instagram has been testing it in some countries like Canada or Ireland. Some people like the idea but there are lot of people that hate it.

I believe the main purpose of it is the take off pressure of Instagram users as mainly the younger audience can be mentally affected by lack of likes which leads to depression and constant comparison which is bad for your mental health. And I get it. So many of us have been there including myself. If I do not nail the time of uploading and miss it sometimes 10 minutes difference or choice of bad day can really affect you and the impression goes down and so do likes. I have done many mistakes in terms of my Instagram but I have to deal with it. We are all on the same boat and even the top influencers with 500 K plus have been affected. I have noticed some of them dropped 50 % when it comes to likes. Yes their likes are still very high but they dropped nevertheless.

I have not studied psychology but sociology which can touch in some ways mass psychology. And people do follow the crowd. I really believe if an average picture gets lot of likes lot of other people click automatically like just because it already has got 10 K. And on the other hand if brilliant picture has 100 likes they may not click on the little heart which most of the users seeking.

In other words we are affected subconsciously by what other people think and follow the crowd. So I am really keen to see how hiding likes is going to mix the cards. I secretly hope that the comments will go up as that may be the only way to demonstrate engagement publicly. That will also be a way how to engage with others. Lot of Instagram users still use the strategy liking lot of other images in order to get likes and now they will have to rely on comments. Yes people still use follow and unfollow strategies. But Instagram has now put on limit and you can only follow up to 6000 people. So the strategy that helped people like Negin Mirsalehi  to get where she is now will not happen anymore. As you can see Instagram is really working in its favour and not for the users.

Either or I am up for testing it out. I am surrounded by quite few children and I find it very sad when 8 years old is asking how many likes picture with them on it got? I am all up for competition but I am definitely not up for this. It can deeply affect them if the likes are down and they are not old enough to understand there is nothing wrong with them but there are many factors that can affect the amount of likes. So let’s see how it all turns out in the end.

Let me know what are your thoughts on hiding likes. I am very curious.

On another note I secretly hope these images would get lot of likes. Well the Prada bag I got on Farfetch definitely deserves a lot. LOL

Instagram neustale prinasi nove a nove zmeny a uz nejakou dobu se mluvi o tom, ze Instagram testuje v nekterych zemich schovavani liku. Napriklad nekteri lide v Irsku ci Kanade uz nevidi liky. A vsichni o tom mluvi. Tato nova strategie ma priznivce, ale jako to byva ve vsem i odpurce. 

Udajne hlavnim rozhodnutim pro tento krok bylo to, ze pocet liku vyrazne ovlivnuje mladsi obecenstvo. Srovnavani a nizky pocet liku casto vede k depresim a to muze vyrazne kohokoli z nas ovlivnit mentalne. A ja to chapu. Instagram dela bohuzel hodne ve svuj prospech, meni algoritmus a i velkym uctum vyrazne klesa pocet liku. Dokonce i velke ucty, ktere maji 500 K plus spadly az o padest procent. Dnes uz musi clovek opravdu analyzovat, kdy fotografii nasadit, aby se zobrazovala co nejvetsimu poctu vasich sledujicich a ziskala tak v prvni hodine velky engagement. Je to pomalu Instagramova veda. 

Ja jsem udelala za tu dobu co mam Instagram hodne chyb (tou nejvetsi byly asi spatne zvolene retezcove giveway) a novy algoritmus me ovlivnil hodne, ale protoze se o to hodne zajimam, vim proc to tak je. Nejaky mladsi uzivatel ci dite nechape, proc jeho fotografie dostala jenom par liku. Prijde mi opravdu smutne, kdyz slysim od kamaradek, ze jejich osmilete dite se neustale pta, kolik uz ma liku. Ja jsem urcite pro soutezivost a dravost, ale ne takovym zpusobem. Osmilete dite totiz nechape, ze vysi liku ovlivnuje hodne faktoru a neni to o tom jaka je fotka, jak vypadaji a neznamena to, ze je s nima neco spatne. 

Nestudovala jsem sice psychologii, ale sociologii a i tam jsem se urcite naucila neco o masove psychologii. Lide casto nasleduji masu, dav dokaze strhnout jednotlivce a proto verim v tom, ze kdyz popularni influencer nasadi velmi prumernou i podprumernou fotografii, ktera ma napriklad 10 000 liku, lide automaticky daji like prestoze fotografie neni nic specialniho. A pak muzete narazit na ucet skveleho fotografa, ktery ma prekrasne fotografie a ma 100 liku a mozna byste jeho fotografii preskocili. 

A uz tohoto duvodu jsem zvedava jak nova strategie instagram zamicha karty. V kazdem pripade si myslim, ze se zvednou komentare. Jednim z duvodu je urcite fakt, ze to bude jeden ze zpusobu jak na sebe upozornit a nalakat ostatni na vas ucet. Ano spousta influenceru stale pouziva strategii jako like for like ci follow and unfollow. Ale i to uz Instagram omezil, takze strategie, ktera pred lety pomohla Negin Mirsalehi se dostat tam kde je ted, se vam uz asi nepodari. Dnes uz muzete sledovat maximalne 6000 uctu. 

Jsem opravdu zvedava, jako vse to ma sve vyhody a nevyhody a bude to urcite zajimave. Vzdy bude tabor, ktery se bude bourit a druhy bude z nove strategie nadseny, ale svet, ktery se zene jenom za poctem liku mi prijde trosku smutny. Takze ja jsem ted v tabore podpurcu. 

A urcite me zajima jak to vidite vy?

Outfit: How to elevate your look

Outfit: Shoes: Balenciaga, Bag: via Farfetch, Jeans: Grlfrnd Denim, Shirt: River Island, Sunglasses: Victoria Beckham

Summer is finally here and I cannot get enough. I spent a big part of June in Czech where the temperatures were super high and then I went to Ireland for a week where surprisingly it was the same. It was first time in like ten years  when I actually wanted to jump in the cold Ocean and the beach was crowded.

And now back in London we have a decent weather. It is up and down but in general I love it. London summer can be fun as you can get heat wave and wear cute dresses or you can get day like this that you get to wear light shirt and nice jeans. This pair is one of my go to pairs and it is by GRLFRND denim. I love how their jeans fit and love the quality too.

This type of outfit is such classic and sometimes you are trying to find a way how to spice things up. Green cool bag like this and bright colour shoes add that perfect touch and make this look more out there. You can get this beauty on Farfetch which is one of my favourite online shopping destinations. Such a big selection and very unique concept.

It really is a great look and easy to wear at weekend, lunch or meeting.  Isn’t it amazing how touch of colour can elevate the whole look?

Leto je v plnem proudu a nemuzu se nabazit. Velkou cast cervna jsem stravila na Morave a pocasi bylo uzasne. No a pak tyden v Irsku, kde snad poprve za deset let bylo skutecne leto. To opravdu neznam a bylo tak horko, ze jsem mela chut skocit do ledoveho oceanu. Pro Iry je to normalni za kazdeho pocasi, ale ja bych za beznych okolnosti asi umrzla.

A ted jsem zpatky v Londyne a pocasi neni nejhorsi. Jednou je hur a jindy lepe. A takove Londynske leto umi byt. Jednou mate horky den a z toho musite vytahnout kabaty. V tento den bylo hezky a presne na takovy outfit jako lehka kosile a dziny. Tyhle jsou od znacky GRLFRND denim a jejich dziny mam moc rada. Je to dobra kvalita a hezky sedi. 

Tento jednoduchy outfit je nadcasova klasika, kterou mam casto chut necim ozvlastnit. Vyrazna zelena kabelka a ruzove boty jsou presne to prave. Kabelka je k dostani na strankach Farfetch, kde moc rada nakupuju. Je to unikatni koncept a vyber je obrovsky.

Presne takoveto outfity mam rada a hodi se na vikend, obed ci schuzku. No neni to skvele jak trosku barvy dokaze zmenit jinak jednoduchy styling?

Manolo Blahnik Designs Shoes for Farfetch

When there is a limited edition people go crazy including me. You may remember one of my previous post when I mentioned Farfetch has teamed up with Aquazzura to create a shoe collection. So when I was invited for an intimate dinner alongside three other bloggers to celebrate another amazing exclusive collection I was over the moon. It was the amazing Manolo Blahnik this time who designed gorgeous striking shoes exclusively for them (dreamy I know right). I never forget to mention his father’s family is from Czech (yes had to thrown it in there). And most people will have his shoes connected with SATC of course.

You also know that I am a big fan of Farfetch. It is a great concept that enables variety of shops and boutiques from all over the world to sell there their pieces online. So very often you can find items that are hard to get elsewhere. You never know from which corner of the world your dream bag will come from. I personally got my Isabel Marant wedding shoes from there and I think they came from Latin America. Isn’t that just amazing?

And as expected the exclusive Manolo’s collection sold out very quickly. There are still few pairs left so perhaps you may be lucky those are in your size. I tried on this gorgeous white pair but they were more on the big side so ended up getting different pair which I want to reveal in one of my new videos. The dinner took place in the lovely Lanesborough hotel and I had such a lovely evening with both Manolo and Farfetch team and also Lydia, Claire and Prim (you can also watch this vlog on my new channel). And it was honestly a wonderful event with lot of bubbles, lovely food and great company. And you know I am planning to build up bigger shoe collection so this was like a blessing. I so much prefer intimate events like this as you can get to know the brand better as you spend good quality time with the team.

Manolo Blahnik is one of the best selling brands on Farfetch and there is no surprise as he does create wonderful, great quality designs that make you feel trendy, sexy and classy at the same time. So thank you so much for having me.

Pokazde, kdyz nekdo vytvori limitovanou edici, lide tak trosku sili. Myslim, ze je to v nasi nature chtit neco, co neni jenom tak k dostani. Mozna si pamatuje muj predchozi post, kde jsem zminovala kolaboraci Farfetch a Aquazzura. Takze kdyz se mi v emailu objevila pozvanka na veceri s Farfetch a Manolo Blahnik, tak jsem skakala temer do stropu. Nikdy nezapomenu vsem pripomenout, ze jeho rodina z tatinkovy strany je z Ceska (musela jsem to rict). LOL A vetsina zen jeho boty ma spojene se serialem sex ve meste. 

A kolekce byla temer hned vyprodana, jeste je jich par k dostani, ale musite mit asi stesti, ze to bude vase cislo. Me PR team prinesl tyhle bile, ale byly mi velke, takze jsem si nakonec vybrala jine, ale ty vam ukazu az v nejakem mem novem videu. Na veceri se muzete podivat i v mem poslednim vlogu. Vecere se konala v krasnem Lanesborough hotel, kde nam uazsne hrali na piano a servirovali dobre jidlo. Ja osobne miluju tyto intimni vecere, kde pozvou opravdu male mnozstvi influenceru, protoze mam moznost poradne poznat znacku, popovidat si jak s ostatnima holkama, tak s PR. Krome me byly pozvany jeste Lydia, Claire a Prim. A opravdu jsem si to uzila. Ten tyden byl pro me docela narocny, mela jsem tri podobne akce po sobe. V pondeli recenzi restaurace a nejake akce pres den, ktere jsem musela odmitnout. S miminkem si musim opravdu vybirat kde pujdu. Neda se stihat vsechno.

Kazdopadne moc dekuju jak tymu Manolo tak tymu Farfetch za pozvani, protoze to  bylo zkratka jako sen.

Love Glamazon xoxo
