Why I love Instagram

Wales Millennium Centre via Instagram

Okay so I know I’m arriving at the Instagram party a little late, but that doesn’t mean I can’t have a quick rave about it. I don’t remember the last time something captured my attention so immediately. In the modern age of constant advertising, Twitter conversations and my ever decreasing attention span that’s a pretty rare thing. So I felt the urge to try and question exactly what it is that makes Instagram so compelling for me.

I think it’s the simplicity of it that makes it so addictive. There’s no overly elaborate settings to fiddle with, you just take a snap and post it. I love the fact that you can’t save pics so you have to be ruthless. If a pic isn’t up to scratch, ditch it and take another. I have my phone with me all the time so it’s great to be spontaneous and snap when I like. I’d never remember to take a digital camera out with me everywhere and I certainly wouldn’t have time to transfer those pics to my Mac and then decide which ones to post online and then decide where I should post them – Facebook? Flickr? Arrrghh!

It’s great seeing what other people are taking pictures of too, in fact it’s a great source of inspiration and creative networking with peers. It’s also nice to see things on a bigger screen sometimes too on this interest/instagram hybrid website: http://www.pinstagram.co/

Instructions for a successful Instagram experience:

  1. Take a picture
  2. Add a filter
  3. Does it look awesome?
    • Yes – go to step 4
    • No – go to step 1
  4. Post it!
