Instagram model with ‘biggest cheeks in the world’ wants more

This Ukrainian Instagram model was not being tongue in cheek when she said she wants even larger features.

Anastasia Pokreshchuk, 30, claims to have the “biggest cheeks in the world” — but wants to pump them up with fillers even further, the Daily Star reported.

“You may think that they are too big but I think that they’re a little bit small, I need to refresh them again soon,” the Kiev resident said.

Pokreshchuk received her first cheek injections four years ago and has not looked back.

“After I had the injections and saw the changes in my cheeks, I fell in love with them,” she said.

“I love them, I want them to look like this and I’m very happy. I regularly inject other parts of my face myself,” she added. “I understand that they look weird for other people but I don’t mind.”

A Fashion Store Worked Around Closing Orders Through Instagram

ST. PETERSBURG, FL — Detox, Designer Resale Boutique made up for in-store buys after they were temporarily closed for 30 days at the start of the coronavirus pandemic selling its clothes through Instagram Story.

Co-owners who are husband and wife, Jake Walsh and Kylie Walsh started using Instagram Story to model their consignment shop’s clothes in February. It excited a lot of customers with what they saw when they were bored from staying home during Florida’s statewide stay-at-home order.

“We have a lot of success with posting things on our Instagram Story,” Jake told Patch. “During our closure, we took most inventory home and just modeled it on Instagram, and we also did a few consignments then.”

Jake said they maxed out their Instagram stories every day, and a lot of their followers told them it was like watching the Home Shopping Network. Customers appreciated the Walsh’s providing exact measurements

Playboy model, 34, claims police failed to investigate a chilling rape threat sent on Instagram

A Playboy model claims police failed to properly investigate a chilling rape threat against her because she works in the glamour industry. 

Germaine Love, 34, was horrified to receive a message from a man on Instagram saying: ‘I’m gonna go in your bar and drag you out by your hair, take you to a dark alley and then begin to rape you, I can’t wait to see you struggle.’ 

A shaken Ms Love, who has more than 35,000 followers on Instagram, called Cleveland Police to tell them she felt unsafe and to ask them to trace the person who left the vile threat. 

She has been in fear of attack at the cocktail bar she owns in Guisborough, North Yorkshire. 

However, she was appalled when the only response she received from police was advice to make her social media – which she uses to promote her bar and her modelling

Instagram Expands Shopping Features to IGTV and Reels

Illustration for article titled Instagram Is Becoming A Glorified Home Shopping Network

Graphic: Facebook

Over the past few years, Instagram users might have noticed that the app morphed from a place where you turn to see your friend’s cute dog photos, into a place where you turn to see those dog photos while also buying a lot of shit you probably don’t need. If you had any doubts about the platform’s intentions of becoming a glorified digital mall, well, just look at its latest update: earlier today, the company announced that it’s expanding its beloved in-app shopping feature to support IGTV (the company’s Youtube clone) and Reels (the company’s TikTok clone). While the latter is primed for a rollout later this year, IGTV creators worldwide can now use their clips to hawk merch to viewers immediately.

If you look at the sample post that Instagram’s spokespeople sent around, the new function feels pretty similar to the app’s current setup

Instagram puts shopping everywhere, first on IGTV and then Reels

TikTok, the musical video app owned by Chinese-based ByteDance, has been bogged down in a fight with the U.S. government. President Donald Trump has tried to force a sale of TikTok to U.S. companies to counter any potential security threats from foreign ownership of a social platform that is exploding in popularity among 100 million American consumers. Walmart was one of the companies that emerged as an interested party in taking part ownership of TikTok, showing that e-commerce is an important growth area for any social platform.

Since Reels launched, brands have been testing out the potential of the videos and measuring how well they perform on Instagram. Chipotle, Dunkin, Red Bull, Maybelline and others are just a smattering of the brands trying Reels. Last week, General Mills’ Yoplait and Jennifer Lopez launched a Reels challenge to promote family activities.

The commercialization of Reels is in full swing, and Instagram

Shopping has become a larger part of the Instagram experience over the past few years.

Instagram’s Explore section in 2018 gained a personalized Shopping channel filled with the things Instagram believed you’d want the most. It also expanded Shopping tags to Stories. Last year, it launched Checkout, a way to transact within the app when you saw something you wanted to buy. And just this summer, Instagram redesigned its dedicated Shop section, now powered by

An Instagram exec shares strategies for brands and influencers

  • Kristie Dash is the fashion and beauty strategic partnerships manager at Instagram, where she works to promote new features like Reels with influencers and brands.
  • Dash discussed how Instagram responded to early criticism of Reels, how influencers and brands can make the most of Instagram’s features, and how it’s working to help creators make money on the platform.

Don’t call Reels a TikTok ripoff.

When Instagram launched its 15-second video feature in August, The New York Times called it a “dud.” Some TikTokkers dismissed it as a copycat.

But Kristie Dash, Instagram’s fashion and beauty strategic partnerships manager, had long been encouraging influencers and brands to experiment with short-form video. 

“It really is the short, snackable [videos], these visual moving moments, that could be…five-to-10 seconds long filmed on your phone. It’s that type of video that’s really performing,” she told Vogue in
