In case you’re not aware, it’s not easy to get that blue verified tick from Instagram

But comeback king Daryl Aiden has not just done a comeback but did it so successfully, his Instagram account is now verified, and there’s an additional 15K followers ever since the disgraceful exposé.

Whoever says that the Yellow Ribbon Project doesn’t work should really follow his story.

A Recap of What Happened

Lest you’ve not been paying your Internet bills since June 2018, here’s what happened: he was caught Photoshopping and using stock images to create his beautiful photos on Instagram.

That’s a no-no in many people’s eyes, given how he advertised himself as a photographer. Add in the fact that his clientele consists of big names like Sony, Uniqlo and Topman:

And you get why he’s getting slammed like nobody’s business in Singapore. The higher you are, the harder you fall, after all.

He tried to rescue his reputation to no avail, especially when he’s getting kicked left, right up and down by several well-known people like Xiaxue.

So in the end, he deleted all his beautiful images on his Instagram account, leaving a single apologetic-ish post on his 101k followers’ account.

Game over?

Apparently not.

A Comeback Since September 2018

About two months ago, he did a comeback with this image and has been active since then.

Mistakes come with a lesson. And with a lesson, comes change.

To show that his images are authentic, he sometimes include behind-the-scene shots.

Within two months, he garnered an additional 14K followers. That would translate to a growth of about 8% in mere two months.

Of course you might be wondering: What’s the big deal? It’s just a blue tick. You see that everywhere in Facebook.

A 34YO "old-virgin" S'porean was desperately looking for a boyfriend and surprisingly, she really found one online. But the intentions of the man will make you cry. Prepare tissue paper to watch this video based on real events:

Here’s why: it’s not easy to be verified on Instagram.

Verified Accounts in Instagram

Take a look at your favourite influencers (not those in mainstream media one hor). Do you see a verified tick?

Chances are, you don’t.

Ask any insider and you’ll know that getting verified in Facebook is usually easier than Instagram.

Recently, Instagram allows people to request for the tick but it’s not a guaranteed thingy: it still has to be reviewed by the invisible people in Instagram. According to them, this is one of the key factors to be verified: you have to a “notable public figure, celebrity, global brand or entity”.

But what’s next is even more interesting.

Rules Must Be Obeyed to be Verified

To be verified, one needs to comply with Instagram’s Terms of Service and Community Guidelines, and one of which is this: “Post only your own photos and videos and always follow the law. Respect everyone on Instagram, don’t spam people or post nudity.”

Guess that’s when the Yellow Ribbon Project comes into play, because I’m pretty sure the kind folks in Instagram know about this scandal.

So, if you feel a need to bounce back after a mistake, remember this name: Daryl Aiden Yow.

If Yow can come back, so can you.
