Instagram cash bonuses 💰

Plus: YouTube's new AI chapters...

Is The Bronx in the room with us?.... Everyone all over social media is throwing shade at Jenny from the Block for constantly bringing up her working class roots. “She’s so Michael Scott coded” is my personal favorite comment on a @velvetcoke Instagram post. In a world where TikTok set the 2020s precedent of filter-less, authentic content, more traditional stars like Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian are struggling to get the memo- and yet, it works because viewers love to hate them for it! 

What’s been your favorite influencer spoof of JLo’s documentary? Anyway, off to drink an orange drink…. if you know you know!

The program is invite-only and caps earnings; excludes branded content and posts with third-party watermarks.

This Meta move reflects Instagram's strategy shift and competition with TikTok's emphasis on photo content.

Despite Meta's attempts to curb manipulation, the scale of illicit behavior persists, including the trading of Performance Bonus-eligible accounts.
