    Default Erica Davies - 'non influencer' ??

    So much for soshul meeja 'influencer' Erica Davies range of homewares then, clearly not 'influencing' QVC customers to buy her goods, as they've all been reduced to get rid of them ! She didn't even appear herself on the Sale show either, probably too busy 'influencing' herself to get out of the front door :

    Perhaps she ought to collaborate with Ambitious Holden and have one big 'influencing' show, as its similar 'stuff'.

    It didn't influence me at all. The things looked boring and drab, no wonder it was a clearance hour.

    I like the garden stuff but my garden is definitely olde worlde cottage rather than tropical so it wouldn't fit in and I just bought cushions and an outdoor rug for the caravan so no need for any of Erica's wares. Is "influencer" a paid job now then? Isn't it just someone posting photos on Instagram (if I even knew what that was lol)?

    CC I've only just discovered the term 'influencer' myself ! and yes, these people get paid for promoting products in their blogs/vlogs/dogs/bogs/fogs/ whatever. Apparently they can be savvy enough to get free hotel accommodation/free holidays/all manner of products, just for promoting it online to the gullible young -- (bit like QVC presenters lol !)

    You can get the same sort of stuff for one-third the price in places like Home Sense and Dunelm.

    I watched a documentary a few days ago - Ellie Undercover: Secrets of the Multi-Level Millionaires. It picked out two companies called Younique and Nuskin (I think). Fascinating and horrifying. It's still on BBC catchup I believe.

    These vloggers/bloggers/influencers, it all seems such a fake world to me. After watching that it's more than fake, it's downright sinister. There are mainly young women being drawn into this scene and according to the documentary these companies are actively preying on them.

    I honestly don't know what's going wrong with society today. I remember pyramid schemes when I was younger but they're apparently banned now. It's about time they started banning paid-for influencers and bloggers as it seems a lot of people can't tell the difference between honest opinions and advertising.

    I'm naturally very cynical and was brought up to believe that if it seems to good to be true, it is. Not a lot of youngsters seem to have been blessed with this viewpoint these days and it's causing massive debt and heartbreak.

    QVC has always preyed on older/disabled/lonely people with it's t-callers and 'friendly' selling techniques but these influencers are making me turn over more and more. I just don't want to hear the bullshit any more.

    And while I'm on a roll - wtf is wrong with people these days any way? The floral display in our local park was vandalised last night. Then the same people (I assume) went on to vandalise some graves. The trouble is, when they're caught they're just told off or, worse, they're sympathised with for their sad upbringing!

    The thing which baffles me (as an innocent OAP) is why in God’s name people keep taking nude and sexual videos of themselves. If it wasn’t on a device then it couldn’t be broadcast to all and sundry and as for people being blackmailed often ending in suicide I just don’t understand it.

    I totally agree & wonder when these people would watch themselves. I don't like having my photo taken when fully clothed & avoid being filmed doing anything. My Mr T was delighted when I had to wear photo ID because he said that if I went missing he'd have something to show the police so they knew who to look for.

    A few years ago I had an almighty row with my employer for refusing to have my photo attached to our website ”meet our team” so for years there was a blank outline next to my name but last time it was renewed they wore me down and I am there very much against my will although I did refuse to “pose” for it.

    I have to agree LATI, I loathe having my photo taken, and I often say that the CIA/MI5/and any other 'authority' would find it difficult to track me down ! I'm not on s/media, don't have a satnav or smart phone, so my movements cant be tracked, and don't do online banking - I'm almost off the 'grid' so to speak - although my aged QVC account would be a starting point

    Apropos your earlier comment about the young 'exposing' themselves, it just beggars belief how low morals have sunk since the advent of social media. I'm not sure how far parenting is responsible either, because kids can be reprimanded but then unless their phones are confiscated they'll still go ahead and do what they do.

    My parents word was law growing up, with the threat of a good hiding if I pushed the boundaries, but all that discipline went out of the window when kids discovered 'their rights' a couple of decades ago, especially at school where discipline was paramount, now its kids who have the whip hand and don't they know it. TV and film scriptwriters can carry some of the blame, when watching soaps or dramas, children never have to say please, thank you or sorry, they are seen to swear at parents with no comeback, so the young assume this is the norm and act it out in real life.

    Its not going to be climate change that will end this planet, as the way our young are acting, it will be the planet of Sodom & Gomorrah. I think my generation had the best of times.

    On an aside. Glastonbury is this weekend, so I wonder how many of those attending who went on climate change marches will leave behind their tents, thus creating more waste for the incinerators !!!!
