Once a month, Dr. Parker features posts by prominent psychologists for various points of view and reader interaction.

Example: A company that makes hiking boots follows a famous person on a social media platform. The person has many followers and shares images and posts of the many places she goes hiking. The company approaches the influencer, and they make a deal where the influencer gets a free pair of boots in every style the company produces if she agrees to wear the boots and talk about them in her posts. She tags the company's social media account and recommends the boots to her followers. The company now raises its number of followers and can boast the positive first-hand experience of the influencer.
