On the one hand, it can be a useful tool in a conversation. It’s a lot easier to say things like “look at me” when you don’t have to hear the full thought. On the other hand, you don’t realize how your actions are impacting others.
Passive aggressive Instagram captions are sort of like the “what’s up?” or “hey, how are you?” messages we’d get when we weren’t around.
They are a great way to say, “Hey, I’m not here right now but I was trying to do my best.
I am usually the one commenting on Instagram and I can go a lot of ways with it. But I am starting to question how much of my actions are impactable. When we say that our actions or thoughts impact others, it could be both good and bad. A person who is genuinely having a good time could be having a good influence.
This is another thing that can make people not want to interact. Social interaction is hard. And when people come to you and they want to be seen, they want to be recognized and they want to be seen as human beings. But they might not know how to act as a human being, so they might not be as impactful as they might want to be. At least, not yet.
A good example of this is a person who posts a photo of their cat, then gets the cat’s owner to post a photo of the cat. It might be good for the cat owner to get the post off to the general public, but they feel as though the cat is being over-protected. If it’s good for the cat owner, it’s not good for the cat, and it might actually be bad for the cat.
The same goes for Instagram, where people who post a photo, and then get a comment from another person, asking them to post a photo. Or a comment asking the person to post something or change something. These are not passive-aggressive situations, which are when the person who’s posted the photo just expects it to be taken down, or that they’re being mean when they post the photo.
The reason we don’t want to be passive aggressive is because we want the people who created the post, or the person who posted it, to be mad about the comment, or to be upset by the person who posted the comment. This is why you want to show a little bit of class in your Instagram captions. I would love for all the captions to be subtle and understated, especially those at the end of the post.
Like many social media platforms, Instagram allows the user to show or hide their account’s comments. If a user posts a comment and it’s not visible, then the comment gets hidden. Sometimes the comment would be hidden due to a post being marked “private” or for spamming reasons. This is different than how Facebook and Twitter work, where you can always see a comment you made, if you want to keep your account private, you can always click the “Show Comments” button.
Instagram is the only social media platform where you can see a comment that someone leaves. You can’t do that on Facebook or Twitter because if you do a post that is marked private or spamming, then Facebook and Twitter blocks the comment. This is because they use a more stringent system than Instagram.
