We’re dropping the filter.
We’re taking a stand against the quest for perfection online. We have seen first-hand the damage heavily edited images on social media can inflict on someone’s mental health, their self-esteem, their self-worth.
We have made a vow to stop using edited, filtered or photoshopped images in our own content. Not only will this protect our team from the mental toll of working daily in social media, but it might hopefully encourage others to follow suit.
Oh So Social Director Katherine George said: “It’s no secret that I have experienced my own challenges with mental health, and I am vocal about raising awareness of the impact of social media on our mental health across my own channels. So, I thought it was about time we practiced what we preach!”
“As a team, we’re pledging to drop the filter and will no longer be editing images for all of our new team photos and any headshots used across our website, social media, and externally, such as for event publicity.”
From now on, it’ll be all natural from us.
