Remember how I said that one of the first things I do in the morning after opening my eyes is look at my phone? Well, after checking any emails, texts, etc. (can’t stand any little red numbers), the next thing I do is head on over to good ol’ Instagram. And I know I’m not alone (there’s a reason Facebook plunked down a cool $1B for the photo sharing app). I love a stream of pictures (they are worth a thousand words, right?) as opposed to the banal status updates of Facebook and Twitter. However, something bad has happened. People are starting to abuse the right to post. Just as some people talk only to hear their own voices, it seems some people post just to post. When I speak, it’s because I have something to say. When I post a photo, it’s because I think it’s actually worth seeing. I think it’s high time we set up some Instagram sharing guidelines. What say ye?
Oh, and if you are as obsessed with Instagram as the rest of us and you think your photos are stellar enough to make a case for your phone, you MUST check out Casetagram. Welcome.
