Something very serious was brought to my attention this morning.
Let's make two things clear: First, I don't consider myself to be a "power-Instagram user," (as evidenced by this piece), but I do have an account that I use every day -- so I apologize if this is "old news" to you. Second, I don't do anything weird on Instagram that would cause my friends/family/acquaintances (read: girlfriend) any distress. That being said, I had no clue that people can literally see everything I "heart" on Instagram, immediately after I like it.
But a simple click of the "Following" tab in the "Activity" page, will unleash a veritable flock of photos liked by your pals -- and don't be surprised if you see a gaggle of scantily clad, faux-tanned, possibly underaged girls glutting up your newly found newsfeed. It happened to me upon my first, uninitiated glance, just as it happened to this Anonymous tipster, writing for New York.
