Tired of the stress of posting photos and videos while you’re on vacation? Ibis, a Swiss hotel chain, is now offering a special service that allows travelers the opportunity to take a vacation from their own social media accounts by hiring a “social media sitter.”
The sitter, who is guaranteed to be an Instagram influencer, will handle all those tweets, Instagram and Facebook posts. They will take over your account and post seemingly perfect photos, Instagram Stories, and, if you want, even reply to comments on your feed.
So instead of you having to worry about capturing the perfect photos, writing the perfect caption and deciding when best to make a post, you can relax and actually enjoy your vacation.
The service is called “Relax, We Post,” and is currently on a trial run through early December at Ibis hotels in Geneva and Zurich, Switzerland. Renting a sitter is free for guests staying at one of the hotels. For many social media influencers, this is a pretty good deal seeing as some of them get paid upwards of $3,000 per post.
However, social media influencers that do hire a social media sitter are required to post #postedbysocialmediasitter so there’s some sort of transparency that it’s not actually them posting the photos.
