The social media plan of Angel Aquino, actress, Woman We Love, and all-around cool person, is part of her mystery.

She has both Facebook and Instagram accounts, but she's barely on these platforms. What she does is this: She'll 'gram a photo and then never revisit that post again. “I just don't want to know what people think of me,” she says in the second part of her Esquire interview.

Likewise, when Angel wants to get something off her chest, she'll take to Facebook, release her thoughts into the world, and never take them down—even if what she says may ruffle a whole lot of feathers. 

For her, it's important to fully own who she is and what she believes in. The busybodies and keyboard warriors of the world may express their very important opinions, but Angel chooses to follow her heart.
