Instagram in Midlife and every life ~
It has been months and months since I wrote about Instagram in Midlife. Finally, I see that many more people of my generation are embracing this social media platform.
I am thrilled to welcome my friends from Facebook as they join “IG” or “Insta” for short. Facebook is so 2015… Instagram is simple, no politics and it is perfect for all generations. No one cares how old you are, they just want to look at your photos.
I absolutely love the creativity and fun Instagram brings. I hope to encourage those of you who have not yet joined who are taking photos on your smart phone. With the IG app on your phone, it is a snap to share a photo.
Because really… If I don’t take a photo did it really happen? Ha!
Take some photos this week and share them with us! It is so fun to see vacation photos and to see what everyone else is experiencing and EATING! Who knew that photographing your meals would be a thing? I have been doing it for years and now I don’t look nearly as odd doing it. You can meet the coolest people through Instagram. I have connected with organic farmers in Australia, bartenders in New York City, world travelers, teenagers from Iowa, old friends, and even relatives I have never met.
Instagram allows for creativity, innovation, perspective and there is room for everyone. Many businesses use Instagram as an effective tool in their marketing campaigns. I have been discovered by some great brands through my Instagram feed and now we are working together.
