Getting to know them – Influencer Interview: Konsta Kettunen
Konsta Kettunen is a 27-year-old, South Helsinki-based, social media fanatic. Konsta, who on Internet goes under the name @monsieursatan or mieskettu (snapchat) describes himself as positive and spontaneous. He enjoys every bit of his everyday life – a life he shares with thousands of people through his social media channels.
Could you tell us about your Instagram name @monsieursatan?
The name came from nowhere – like a bolt from the blue! I thought it sounded nice and it has since been the name I am known under on Internet, Mieskettu is my name only on Snapchat.
Which Emoji do you think describes you the best?
What does social media mean to you?
Social media is very important for me – I couldn’t go a day without using it! It is like a parallel world, I see it as all users mega-brain, where people share and experience together.
What kind of content do think suits social media the best?
Social media has to be as much as possible in the shortest time possible. The more stimuli – the more interesting it gets. For me that means content with both visual and audio features. Nothing is as addictive, and important, as sharing a true feeling.
How much does social media control your life?
Too little! I would like to be even more addicted to social media. Some people don’t consider all situations to need social media, for me those situations are very few. I wish for the automatization to become even more powerful – as soon as I experience something beautiful, it should be shared to social media.
Do you interact with your followers?
Absolutely! I posted a recipe on Snapchat a while back which got a lot of feedback. Over 80 of my followers screenshotted the Snap and then actually sent me their own versions and pictures of them cooking. It was fun to see that people actually got activated and inspired. In general I always try to answer when people reach out to me – I want the conversation to be two sided and to remain loyal to my followers.
What would your dream cooperation be?
My motto is “freelancer of everything”. I am open to try and at least consider all cooperations. But since I believe in authenticity, I want to stand for the brand and the brand to believe in me. I would love to work with Finnair or VR; meet new people at different places and document it on their social media channels.
