We go again,
What I want to talk about isn’t a new thing, it’s not an astounding thing, it’s just something that exists. And exist in many forms. The micro-influencer is a cultural icon and must be applauded for their placement and strategic influence in the social space. Whatever you like on Facebook, retweet on Twitter, or reblog on Tumblr it is because a micro-influencer allowed you to see it.
Just like one of my favourite orators, Pulitzer Prize-winning Will Durant, this is a shameless worship of heroes, a light on these social heroes that stand high above the rest with their newsworthy exploits, like how they are literally exploited by “True Media” & “Real News”. Such big media outlets are not fast enough to actually pick up on such stories as these men women and trans people.
In a space where there is cultural relevance, there is a micro-influencer in the wing to cross the ball into the box for these misguided behemoths. All trends were made and given to the youth by the youth, when you’re of the old guard respect and play your position and listen to what the youth tell you.
The youth create, good or bad in your opinion it is a fact it was the cause of the old guard it is that way. You see descent and decay it was the cause of the old guard. Greatness and Potential, the old guard. The micro-influencer sheds light on them all, and when you have a cluster of them together the effect is Virality. It is a simple fact that a few or more “Mavens” (in the words of Malcolm Gladwell) have the potential to create phenomenon so much so quality is only a matter of taste.
For what it’s worth I find it all beautiful as a 20SMTHNG, the potential of my generation’s ability to connect across continents. Simply astounding and can’t wait to see where it goes. As long as the people’s media lives so do the micro-influencer.
