This is a pretty old app, and this is actually one of the first few apps I ever bought, but somehow I have never really gotten into it, until now. A lot of you might have it already, but in case you don’t, get it so we build our Instagram community! For those who don’t have it yet, it’s like Twitter, where you follow people and have people following you. Only instead of just words, you post photos, with captions if you wish, and it enters your feed, and the feed of the people who follow you, just like on Twitter. People can also “like” your photos and post comments, just like on Facebook. So it’s pretty fun! You can post based on artistic merits of your photos, or simply anything you found interesting enough to take a picture of. Just like on Twitter, the personality of the friend will reflect on the photos they post.
So follow me on Instagram, my user name is chicogarcia and just search for it. And I’ll check out your pictures as well! I can’t promise to follow you back, but if I’m intrigued, I surely will. I only have a few photos posted, since I just started this week, but I’m having so much fun I promise to post much more. It’s a nice exercise, you get very conscious of the things you see, and you’re constantly like: “What’s a nice image to post on Instagram?” For photo buffs, it’s a nice way to sharpen your “eye”, learning to find the extra in the ordinary to come up with something extraordinary.
Here’s a couple of what I have so far:
So come on, do your own photo-diary of sorts and join us on Instagram! I’m a late bloomer here, but now I’m so addicted!
