Millennial claims it can tell how old you are based on your social media profile, and it’s bad news if you get your friends together for a group photo.
- An influencer shames millennials for being ‘out of date’ on Instagram
- He chided the teapot poses, planned group photos, and curated profiles.

Loren from the US is tired of ‘older people’ still subscribing to outdated trends when it comes to their social media accounts.
The influencer is often confronted with photos of a group in a soccer team position, with half of them squatting in front of the taller members, and wonders why people still insist on being “uncool.” “.
“No one needs to take my advice, you can do whatever you want and it’s okay if you want to date someone,” she said.
Loren complained about the hands-on-hips poses, overly curated Instagram feeds, and doe-eyed selfies that need to be laid down.
Loren (pictured) from the US is tired of ‘older people’ still subscribing to extremely outdated trends when it comes to their social media accounts.
“I really hate it when people pose with their hands on their hips,” she said on a TikTok. “I get it, I did cheerleading and dancing, this is what they taught us.”
But Loren insisted that there was a time and a place for everything, and the era of the teapot pose is over.
‘It’s flattering, but you’re in the middle of a restaurant, you’re not running for Miss USA, so relax!’
He also commented on the evolution of the group photo.
“We’re not getting everyone together for a group photo anymore, we don’t need to get everyone together, put the tallest in the back and the shortest in the front, and have everyone put their hands on their hips.”
Loren complained about the hands-on-hips poses, overly curated Instagram feeds, and googly-eyed selfies that need to be laid down.
He much preferred the authentic Gen Z approach to capturing memorable moments.
“Something I love about Gen Z is that they’re very sincere,” he said.
“So if you’re throwing a cookout, just take some candid photos of everyone at the event chatting—you don’t have to be weird and pose like a football team photo.”
Loren was not a fan of the perfectly cured early to mid 2010s aesthetic Instagram feeds where people were using presets and everything was beige.
“Gen Z is chaotic: they don’t care, they just post what they want, when they want, in whatever color the photo was originally taken in.”
The influencer’s latest complaint was about a specific type of wide-eyed ‘millennial selfie’.
“Posting googly-eyed selfies is not,” she said. “I think millennials assume we look younger if we have doe eyes, but that’s not true.”
Loren is often confronted with group photos in a soccer team position, with half of them squatting in front of the taller members, and wonders why people still insist on being “uncool.”
Thousands agreed with Loren and begged other millennials to stop being “embarrassing” and “showing your age.”
“I’ve been saying this for years: googly-eyed selfies need to stop.”
‘0.5x photos are best; everyone should take notice.’
Many thought Loren was giving Gen Z too much credit for being good on Instagram.
‘Gen Z is still calculated on its aesthetics and photos. They intentionally make it sound sincere.
‘It’s called a plan-did – they do it on purpose.’
Some were upset that she attacked the beloved group photo.
“I think people will regret not taking group photos, they are kind of sweet. I mean, there’s no reason you can’t do both.
“I love group photos for memories, you always want to look back.”
