I is for..........Instagram

My daughters convinced me to put Instagram on my phone, and I have to admit, it's pretty cool. I enjoy seeing what the girls post, it's kind of like a digital diary for them.

They get to express themselves, and I get to see what's going on in their heads. They feel empowered, and I get to be the nosy parent they wouldn't tolerate under just about any other circumstances. Works for me.

I don't post much myself, and other than the girls, I don't follow a lot of people, mostly family members and a few friends. I follow a couple University of Wisconsin accounts, and National Geographic posts a lot of great pictures.

Like all social media, Instagram can be addictive. There are days I check the thing way too many times, but overall, I'm a fan.

How 'bout you?

  4. Not yet -- no smart phone. After all, i have teens, so i don't need anything else in the house that is smarter than i am!

  5. Hurrah for Instagram - I have to confess to being addicted every since I got an iPhone. Good on you for doing the challenge, Tim

  6. Yep, the kids love Instagram. I only follow my niece and NASA. NASA posts more frequently.
