Should you prefer tips on Instagram and TikTok over financial advisors?

The latest is all over social media platforms where ‘influencers’ can be seen strolling the French Riviera or jetting off on private jets, all the while flaunting their wealth. Looking at the trend, it turns out that Gen Z (especially those between the ages of 18 and 25) are obsessed with a lavish lifestyle. There are thousands of hashtags on Instagram or Twitter where users can be seen posting photos of themselves and the French Riviera. As you scroll through these pictures, you may feel like you’re not rich enough to go places other people can go. This is a natural human instinct and one of the main reasons why excessive use of social media can lead to low self-esteem.

Should you be influenced by what you see on social media?

So, the question is: What should you do now? Should these so-called social media influencers influence you? Or, should you find out how to make more money and get rich with these vacation spots like Uber? Looking at the surface level, it would sound like the latter is a viable option. Looking at other people’s pictures will do you no good. Instead, it will lower your self-esteem and, in turn, your self-esteem. Therefore, setting yourself up for financial success is a wise decision. So you’ll be able to visit destinations and not miss the French Riviera. It’s no secret that if you have enough money, you can travel around the world and explore new places. Instead of watching others enjoy these places, you can go there and make lifelong memories.

Most of what you see on social media is fake!

It is a natural human instinct to judge a book by its cover. What comes to your mind when you see a picture of your friend posing for an adorable picture on the beach? You might be thinking, “This guy is living the perfect life and has it all figured out.” But the truth is, life on Instagram isn’t actually real life. You can’t – and can’t – see what’s actually going on.

Sam/Pixels/Instagram dictate your lifestyle.

So, don’t be swayed by someone who seems happy on Instagram. To make matters worse, these people offer ruthless financial advice. These pieces of advice are unsolicited. So, don’t listen to every finance you hear on social media. Not everything you see on Insta is real. Don’t let others dictate your life on social media.
