Wonder what the kids are up to? Check out their Instagram feeds. Better yet, make your own. While Twitter is a dying platform according to social media experts, and necessary privacy issues/stricter features are keeping folks off Facebook, Instagram is on the rise. The photo-based app can only be used on a smart phone, though browsing through someone’s feed is possible on a desktop.
Why do people like “Insta”? Because it’s FUN and positive – beautiful pictures of friends and places, food and faces, and celebrity snaps. It’s also a wonderful way to see what’s happening in the photography and art world by following art institutions and magazines – or your favorite photographer. Here’s how to get started – and remember – you can set your privacy on this platform or not, it’s up to you.
