Dear readers, this is a true story. Like me before, there may be those of you who are still deciding whether or not to register an Instagram or Insta account, and with the little research I have done on the matter, during a period lasting no more than three or four months, I have been led to wonder just how ridiculously silly it has been to have procrastinated at this rate. At any one time in a single day, so it was recorded some time ago, probably not that long ago at the time of writing this post for you, there were just over a billion active visitors to the Instagram platform.
After an incredibly long hiatus, lasting, would you believe, as long as two years, I decided to return to my Facebook profile page. Boy, did I have a lot of catching up to do. And I started to wonder just how easy it had become too quickly lose touch with so many people, significant others and inconsequential numbers. Speaking of which. Speaking of which. Not by any means are the numbers inconsequential, in fact, they hold quite a bit of strategic importance, depending on how you choose to approach the matter.
The practice of buying Instagram followers adds a lot of stock to the work of enterprising or ambitious Insta subscribers. Significant others. For the time being, these are my family members; brothers, sisters, mom and dad and, would you believe, even their kids who have yet to reach their teen years. I must admit, not having any kids of my own, I found it quite amazing that even kids are opening their own Instagram accounts and being allowed to do so too. I had done some research on the historical origins of Instagram a while back before I spoke to my brother about this.
Initially, Instagram was no more than a testing playground for kids and their projects. But the designers and innovators, who knows, perhaps they too were stunned by the phenomenal response they received when they took their project live, quickly came to realize the potential market value of the Instagram brand. Speaking of which, my brother, a graphic designer by trade (today he’s also working on movie shorts), has his own recognizable Instagram brand. Of course, it was easy hat for him to come up with and install his concept, given his years of experience in the business.
But what would you know, it is as easy as pie in the sky for you and me too. The Instagram tools (of their trade?) are user-friendly and quite easy to use, even for klutzes like me. No, not you, I would never venture into calling you that. I have too much value and respect for you as a reader. And indeed, I am quite grateful, although I must just tell you that I have no idea how many folks out there have read this post, the first of many on this here new Insta account.
