Behind the Instagram Filter

Of all the social media options, I love twitter the most. I have met some wonderful friends through random conversations, and almost anything can be live tweeted with hilarious consequences.

Facebook is fine. I like it for finding events and catching up with friends via group message.  And then there’s instagram. Some people talk about the “theme” of their page. I am not one of those people. I try to most decent photos, that reflect who I am, or what I’m doing. And generally framed in a positive light.

Attending Minnstameets and MN Community events inspire me to take more photos, while also showing me just how talented people are. What is interesting is how out of place I feel when attending those events. At Social Media Breakfast I am pretty okay with sitting wherever, chatting with whoever, and seeing what happens.

Things aren’t necessarily great right now. Work is stressful. I’m not sleeping very well, and it takes everything in me to keep the apartment clean, healthy food in the fridge, and regular workouts. But instagram photos of the dark times isn’t something I want to be sharing. So instead you’ll be seeing the wins. So I have something to look back on.

What’s your favorite social media platform?

Do you share everything? Or keep it to the good stuff?

  1. There are so many negative things going on in the world. I use Facebook for the FUN STUFF. I love it when my friends post things that make me laugh.

  2. Good post, I love to hear people’s thoughts on their favorite platform and why. I love Twitter for the quick bites and real-time information and conversations, followed by Instagram for the images and perspective. Overall I’m a private person, so no matter the location, I tend to stay on the side of undersharing yet being authentic.
