I don't allow my daughter to follow/be followed by anyone she doesn't know. She showed me an account that wanted to follow her because it wasn't an actual person she knew but it was something her friends from her school were all participating in. After looking at it I discovered it was a weekly beauty contest. You post of pic of yourself every week and the other people vote somehow. I told her not to follow it because 1.I had no idea who was running this account and 2. I don't think its right. This stuff worries me. I don't mind her having an instagram because she likes to share and express things that she likes with her friends and I think it is a good way to connect AS LONG as its used respectfully. But this I don't agree with and I'm glad DD has also decided that she wants no part in it.
