Is Instagram ruining your life? Fear not…we are all on the same page! Instagrammers listen up! We are tired of #selfies, #foodporn and #babies!
Lets face it, Instagram is recorded to have 300 million monthly users worldwide, which means a hell lot of filter pictures of people basically doing the same thing at different locations!
So how often do you use your Instagram? Guilty confession….I use Instagram almost five or six times a week, however to some Instagrammers this is classified as ‘too less’.
Most girls are constantly on their Instagram rather than actually enjoying what is in front of them. I remember being on holiday on the beaches’ of Barcelona with a friend, and all she was worried about was how her Barcelona selfie looked. I remember thinking when did we forget to appreciate the little things without adding a hash tag and getting a million likes?
Instagram might have filters but in real life there are many #nomakeupselfie or #nofilter moments. While you are busy making that photo prefect for your Instagram followers, you forget to appreciate what is in front of you. They say pictures mean a thousand words, however, in this case a thousand pictures means get off your phone and start using your eyes.
Instagram makes you unsocial…yes I said it! Yes you have 55 likes and 432 followers but your friend is sitting there talking to you about the most exotic holiday she just came from and all you can think about is going on instagram and looking at her pictures #failedattemptatsocialising
Instagram images look like they are from another alternative reality where you and your boyfriend are Jay Z and Beyoncé on holiday at Marbella with the perfect beach and sunset selfie. That’s not the worst part, at first Instagram hosted a series of beach, food, swimming pool and baby pictures (all perfectly edited to perfection) but now we see almost anything and everything on Instagram. From celebrities posting pictures of their ‘stash’ to blurry but arty pictures of music festivals and concerts.
