Social media influencers and your photography/art. If no one saw your photography, how would that change you as a photographer?

Every day we see photographers and creative types posting videos, stories, reels, and photos to their social media streams. This is all fine and good but the thing is … they are often overly influenced by “social media influencers”. They copy them and use the same format, the same mannerisms, the same intro, the same gestures, the same look, the same language.
It’s ok to be influenced by the “influencers” … to an extend … but don’t lose sight of your own creativity, your own skill, your own art, and your own worth.
If we all copy the “influencers”, then there will be no originality, no progression, no personal growth, and no fun.
