Approaching someone on instagram Watch

    Hi

    So there's someone who I've noticed on Instagram by randomly browsing through comments made on photos of people I know and follow. His Instagram is public and looking through it, he seems like a really interesting guy.
    He is a friend of my cousin's but we haven't seen each other in many many years and I doubt he knows who I am!
    Is it acceptable to approach someone on Instagram in a "would be nice to get to know you" sort of way?
    I only ask because on the surface of it he seems like the kind of guy I would approach in real life but I hardly ever meet these guys due mainly to where I go to uni.
    My biggest concern is that he isn't a complete stranger as he knows my cousin really well so this could backfire in a bad way!
    Thanks x

    Comment under his pic 'you got kik?'










    lol jk. Dont do that. Just follow him, he'll follow back and then you'll like each others pics etc etc comment. Just don't think too much of it, its not that deep. You're not a complete stranger so that's a +.

    Hi I promise to let you know! By some coincidence I might actually see him in person at a party I'm going to next week. If I don't though, I will let you know what happens when I use the Instagram tactic
