One of the reasons why many people no longer watch the news anymore is because of the atrocities the anchors report every day. In fact, it wouldn’t be wrong to say that almost everything you see on the media is completely negative. Indeed, there is not a single day where we can turn on the tv and learn about something positive.
The fact of the matter is that a lot of people these days choose social media over traditional tv to keep themselves informed. To put it briefly, social media platforms feed you information based on your interests. So, if you want to skip all the bad news that overwhelms the world on a daily basis, you can choose to do so.
When it comes to tv, you just get whatever the anchors are told to present. A sad reality we live in. Now, what would you think if we were to tell you that there’s a place on Instagram where you can get nothing but good news? Too good to be true? Well, it is true. And today we’re telling you all about it.
The Good News Instagram Movement
So, when it comes to social media, there is content for every single taste. So much so, that there is an actual array of original posts and accounts for us to enjoy. For example, did you know there are people on Instagram who upload pics of nothing but pumpkins?
We are aware of how weird this sounds. But, hey, we are sure someone likes that stuff. Actually, we are very sure that a lot of people like that stuff. Otherwise, such accounts wouldn’t have as many followers as they do.
This goes to show that a little creativity can take you to create something that lots of people find interesting. Personally, I found an Instagram page called “Goodnews_movement” and I simply loved it. Honestly, there is no much to tell.
The site in question does nothing but to upload daily good news. Something totally different from what traditional media does. Incredibly, the positive news the Instagram page hosts every single has made the owner gain over 488k followers.
The Person Behind The Page
The more the page began to grow, the more people wanted to know who was behind the account. Fortunately, the good news movement founder was kind enough to leave her Instagram handle on the bio of the page for us all to see. So, who was the mastermind behind this original idea? Well, she’s a Colombian journalist named Michelle Figueroa.
We don’t really know much about her as a person. Other than the fact that she is all about uploading heartwarming content and staying away from politics. Ms. Figueroa has been featured in major media outlets. Both digital and traditional. As a matter of fact, she’s had a space on People’s magazine, MailOnline, and UsWeekly.
The Good News Movement popularity has led Michelle Figueroa to gain a couple of very unexpected followers. Incredibly, both Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle found the site and simply loved it. Again, major media outlets decided to write about this and asked Figueroa what her thoughts were regarding the topic.
In a nutshell, she claimed to feel humbled and excited.
