What do you use Instagram for? Sharing your selfies, pics of your loved ones, maybe your latest toys and clothes purchased recently? I use it for the same. Mainly some selfies, pics of food since I am a foodie, drinks, maybe my latest purchase of dvds or something else. I even might share images of a movie poster that I love or a musician/band who I follow. Maybe a funny image or two. That’s it.
What I find so funny is the horde of Instagram model wannabes. Mostly young women. Buying clothes so they can pose in many pics. Make up done even when sitting at home. Lighting setup. Mood lights setup. Getting friends with cameras to shoot a bunch of pics. A lot of girls I know from work have started their accounts and started putting on their makeup professionally just for this. Ofcourse with a filter added to some of the photos. They even go to some hotels, cafes and resorts so they can pose for pics in beautiful locations – against a tree line or a lake or river or a lawn etc etc.
And ofcourse the quotes. You cannot forget the quote. A pseudo-spiritual quote? Seemingly meaningful quote about a women (presumably them) – that’s one small pose for a woman but a giant roll of pics for all womankind. Oh the quotes. Giving off such complicated thoughts and musings! Yuck, yuck!
