What is Instagram all about and Why ?


So I got a Facebook request from a friend to join, and thought, why not... Everyone's doing it   LOL

I am becoming more and more computer and social networking literate, but don't think I have anything too special to show or offer.

Honestly, the only social media I'm on is Facebook. I feel like I'm a rarity because everyone my age is on everything!

But as far as I know, Instagram is more of a photo-related social media outlet. Many people use it to post photos of themselves with friends, or bloggers will use it as a way to photograph products they review. Some people just use it as a way to practice their photography skills!

I may end up with an account at some point, so I can get my jewellery business up on different platforms :) Whatever you use it for, it's just there for fun.

People use Instagram for different reasons. The more you use Instagram, the more different ways you'll see other people are using it, and the easier it'll be to figure out why you want to use it :)

I use it to share photos I've taken, since I treat it like an online memory book, and I like to look at other people's photos for inspiration or even a moment of joy. I get to see photos taken by people around the world and share in their lives, how cool is that!

Instagram is a great place for four things in my opinion:

Contests: Lots to enter, but usually require reposting the pic (use the Repost app).

Art: Great way to follow artists you love or discover new ones.

Photography: If you love amateur photography there are lots of communities to enter, I use JJcommunity, one of the most popular.

Body positive: Lots of awesome plus size and non plus size ladies who post on Instagram.

Thanks everyone but I am still stuck LOL

I joined and was able to put up my profile pic. I can figure out who to add to follow, who's following me. But, what icon is the one so I can up load a pic. I have some good amateur photography and paintings I want to post. I only have it on my laptop cuz I don't have a cell phone. Do I need an app or something??

geez I feel so out of the loop lol

Hi MissNinja,

From the website you can follow people, view photos, and add your profile.

You need a mobile device the app to post photos/videos. If you have a tablet where you can download the app, that would work.

If you already use Facebook, you can connect your Instagram account and share pics from Instagram to your FB feed using filters.
