Influencers Gone Wild: Nature’s Influence on Social Media for 2024

By  | 

Influencer content often pushes social boundaries. From lunch-break nude photoshoots and celebrity nipple slips, to lunchtime nude photoshoots or celebrity nipple slips, influencers create provocative content which both draws applause from and raises criticism from their audiences.

As is often said, with great power comes great responsibility. Influencers must strike a delicate balance between spontaneity and sensibility to avoid backlash from followers or audiences.

Social Media

Influencer marketing can be an extremely effective marketing tool that drives brand recognition and boosts customer loyalty. Their ability to connect with their audiences on a personal level provides them with an unmatched opportunity for building trust and long-term relationships with audiences. Unfortunately, keeping up with trends may lead some influencers to overstep boundaries in pursuit of attention or recognition; often leading to collisions between social norms and ethical considerations and creating controversial or adult-themed content such as “influencers going wild”.

Wild influencers polarize followers, sparking debates that test societal norms and disrupt platforms with disruptive or provocative content, leading to negative responses from both audiences and brands alike. Finding ways to address this dark side of influencer culture is paramount in maintaining a healthy digital ecosystem.

After an influencer goes wild, brands reevaluate their collaboration processes and vetting criteria. Analyzing how these changes are implemented provides insights into the developing dynamics between influencers and brands. Furthermore, understanding how influencers respond provides insight into the shifting responsibilities that come with online fame – helping foster empathy while showing appreciation for resilience.


Nature has long been seen as an advocate of science in culture, yet social media offers new avenues for bottom-up culture creation and diffusion. Social media’s energy, velocity and amplified reach is revolutionizing how culture is created by consumers and communities worldwide.

Madina Jade, one of our UK influencers, created her TikTok account and started posting videos featuring lingerie and swimwear – these resonated well with her sexy and fun personality and earned her 266K followers on TikTok – this exemplifies how brands can connect with influencers to cultivate a highly engaged audience.

Photos uploaded to our study were evaluated for their presence of nature labels as identified by Google Image Recognition API and social context tags such as daily routine, fun activities, weddings, honeymoons and vacations. A generalized linear mixed-effects model was employed to investigate how each context related to photos with nature labels (Table S1). We found that photos with honeymoon or vacation tags had higher propensities for featuring nature labels than daily routine tagged photos- with the exception of plants (Figs 2, 3).

Research confirms this trend, showing how nature-based interventions help improve attention and mood while simultaneously alleviating symptoms of depression and stress. Furthermore, watching videos depicting natural environments may prompt individuals to make environmentally-friendly choices such as supporting local businesses or reducing water usage.


Social media is a dynamic environment. Trends, content distribution and audience composition change frequently across platforms; making it hard to track its effect on mental health; however, its use as an avenue for healthcare has demonstrated promising signs.

Social media influencers are powerful forces, with the power to reach and connect with large audiences on social media. Their opinions are respected and heard; thus influencing purchasing decisions.

Therefore, it is vitally important to select influencers based on their past experiences and reputation. It would also be prudent to look for influencers with high engagement levels among their audiences; this will ensure they remain authentic and credible.

If you follow wellness influencers on TikTok, chances are you have seen them promote the advantages of certain lifestyle choices. Fitness influencers might share workout or diet routines or advice with their followers in order to make them feel better about themselves and their bodies; but some influencers go too far and promote unhealthy practices as being beneficial for wellness.

Influencers who also serve as mental health experts present even greater potential for exploitation. For instance, when the photo of poppies blooming in Lake Elsinore went viral, crowds visited to take their own photographs and post them on social media – potentially harming ecosystems by trampling flowers and leaving trash behind, as well as disrupting wildlife relying on these areas for food or shelter.

Harvard researcher Yarnell implemented one solution by arming influencers with evidence-based information. She provided this training to 62 mental health creators active on TikTok who shared it – in their own relatable ways! – about five core themes pertaining to mental health such as closing the mental health care gap, mind-body connection and inter-generational trauma.

When selecting influencers for collaborations, look beyond follower counts and focus on their ability to engage their audiences. Research past collaborations to see how well they represent other brands – this ensures an authentic partnership that meets your store’s values.
