As of October 2020, Facebook and Instagram were reported as having more than a billion users on each app worldwide! Of these users, more than 500 million on Instagram and a billion on Facebook are said to engage on the apps daily. Have you seen the #WCW hashtag? Well the #WCW hashtag, an acronym for “women crush Wednesday”, is used across various social media platforms and has over 60 million Instagram posts as of October 2020. That’s a lot of crushes!
Based on the data, crushes and admirers are abundant on social media and we see why. In many ways, social media is a platform for people to virtually display their personal portfolios. For many, social media is a place to curate their identity and inner voice, a place to highlight their achievements and best self, a space to display their alter egos and a means to catalogue their interests and desires. As app users, we scroll and swipe with intrigue, admiration, amusement and even lust. We acquire a virtual connection to our “FB or IG friends/girlfriends in our head”. We feel like we know the people behind the accounts and would like to connect with them but what’s stopping us? We believe it’s FEAR.
Many users troll accounts. They view all posts but selectively double tap to “like” certain pictures and videos. When feeling brave, these users may comment or even save or share a favorited post. Sound familiar? Instagram and Facebook give us access to millions of people on any given day but fear stops us from making connections. If this resonates with you, then let us introduce you to The IG Assist.
The IG Assist
Our Sis, Shoot Your Shot! series encourages women to take a chance on making meaningful connections, with a little help. For our social media users, we created The IG Assist. We know you want to connect with someone and the fear is real! We understand this fear and the hesitation around making the first step. For many of us, shooting your shot is easier said than done. With The IG Assist, you tell us which Instagram or Facebook account you want to connect with. We discreetly reach out to this account on your behalf to assist with making a connection. Connections can be for platonic friendships, non-platonic friendships, business, or dating. You specify your situation and what you are looking for and we come through with the discreet assist! We will direct message (DM) the account on your behalf to see if a potential connection can be made. If so, it’s a win - we disappear and give you the green light to shoot your shot! If not, no harm no foul - we let you know it’s not mutual and everyone moves on. With over a billion users these apps, one “no” doesn’t stop the show! Interested? It’s only $5. Try it and maybe you will end up with a new friend! Click the button to purchase The IG Assist.
What’s the catch? Our service is only as good as the information you provide. Here are a few things to keep in mind: 1. We do not guarantee anything other than a valid assist on our end. We will message someone discreetly on your behalf. We cannot make them respond, want to connect or be interested. 2. We do not provide this service for private pages. You can request it, but we cannot make anyone accept our follow request or respond to our DM. 3. We suggest you use our services for individuals with “regular” Instagram accounts. Asking us to assist with making a connection with a top influencer or someone with several thousand followers, might be mute but hey – we can try if you like! 4. The service is crafted for women seeking to connect with other women. Connections can be platonic or a bit more intimate in nature – just be upfront and honest with us so we know your intentions. 5. This service is not designed for those actively seeking “love”. That would look and feel different for each individual and requires work and a level of introspection. We just assist with shooting shots, the rest is on you. 6. This service is open and available to all sexual identities and races. 7. SBNNL Member perk – one free monthly IG Assist!
