The Tesla chief has been warning for several years about the dangers of picture-perfect images posted by influencers and users on Instagram. Previously, he even called Instagram a “next-level thirst trap.”
During an interview with the Full Send podcast in August, Elon Musk revealed that he did have a private account, but stopped using it after discovering he was wasting his time and taking too many selfies. .
“Instagram is a next-level thirst trap. I found myself taking a lot of selfies, and I was like, “Why am I doing this? “. Then it was about getting more likes and taking selfies,” Musk said.
Separately, in 2018, Elon Musk also said in an episode of Joe Rogan’s podcast that Instagram makes people look prettier and happier “than they really are.” “One of the problems with social media, that has been pointed out by many people, is that I think maybe, especially Instagram, people seem to have a much better life than they do. they actually don’t,” the tech mogul said in the podcast.
