    does anyone think that instagram has gotten so cringey with people constantly posting fake pics of themselves trying to portray an image of themselves thats not true. I stopped using insta a while ago because of this. Does it bother anyone else? A lot of people i know have noticed this too.

    it's like you can just reek the desperation in every picture adn the effort that went into it and how desperate they are to get likes and so they will post it on their stories too and ask you personally to leave a like and comment on their picture. I get so many of these messages. just.. why?

    yes. a lot of people on there will do anything to get the most aesthetic picture so they can boost their virtual ego slightly for a few minutes before wanting more likes. it's just so cringe.

    I'll say that some people misuse Instagram, but many people use it to produce content that entertains, pursue their hobbies, marketing and publicizing their hard work.

    Social media is the future

    A few friends tried to get me onto it a while back. It ended up just being thousands of selfies of them on holiday trying to copy the normal Instagram cliche photos. There were a few good people that I came across who used it for genuinly creative purposes - especially some photographers accounts, which were amazing to go through.. but mostly it was just trash.

    How to do holiday photos not like a ********:

    Spoiler:
    Show

    Take a camera/phone..
    take lots of pictures of the people you are with, and the places you go to.. no more then 20% should be of you..
    Don't post pictures to social media whilst your on your trip
    When you get back, sort through them and pick out the best 40-50 tops.
    Print them out and put them in an album/book

    Why? Because anyone who you care about enough, will see you in person eventually, and can look through the book. If you have people far away that you absolutely never see, then post a small selection 5-10 to social media, but still make the book. Albums and books are amazing because firstly, people have far more patience to look through a nicely laid out album then 300 un-sorted photos dumped on social media.. but most of all: It lasts.

    In 20 years time when your kids, or in 50 years time when your grandkids want to see your family photos you will be much more happy if you can point them to a shelf of photo books/albums, rather then having to say 'well they were all on instagram' only to have your grandkids ask 'whats instagram?'.

    This is also the rason for the no more then 20 selfies. I love looking through my grandmas photos, and I digitised all of them a while back. They are like a little chunk of time - I can see what she was like, but also see all the people she was with, and see where she went, and what mattered to her. Its lovely. Then I go and look at my cousins photos, who has a small child. 90% of the photos from before he was born are her face infront of a camera. When he is 20 and wants to look back and see his mothers photos, hes going to be disappointed.
