It's when you do a Katie Price and get your teeth done on the cheap (not cheep) in Turkey.Wait...what’s “turkey teeth“. Is it like duck mouth?
I do not disagree that a person can customize their account, but I think that focuses on a very narrow part of what makes IG what it is. There are a lot of sites where you can post images and follow who you wish, but IG, like its parent FB, has used the platform, or allowed the platform to be used, for other purposes that do not really have to do with just sharing images. There is money and/or status to be made in social media, and I cannot say that is the case in this forum. If IG and FB just let folks post their content, and that was that, I might not think so badly of them. But they tend to control what does or does not get seen to a greater or lesser degree, and that is a lot different that posts here.With regards to pictures, what makes Instagram any different from this forum or any other camera forum?
The discerning vs the non - discerning is the difference. Not saying which is which though........With regards to pictures, what makes Instagram any different from this forum or any other camera forum? Many here enjoy taking photos of birds, sunsets, architecture, motorcycles, etc... blissfully unconcerned that they're not the first person to take a photo of said cat, sunflower, eagle, etc... and others like and comment upon the ones that they particularly like.
Perhaps I am speaking out of turn? Feel free to correct me.
I associate Instagram with phones, therefore snaps, therefore filters etc. I appreciate that creatives use Instagram to promote their work/businesses, but are these not in the minority?
What I can say for sure is that every single time I open a newspaper, there are pictures lifted from Instagram and Facebook of young and not so young ladies taking pictures of their Turkey teeth, bottoms, botox, pregnancy bumps etc. Then there are the Kardashians with their altered versions of themselves. It's this side that I find odd.
For sure, and that's why I'm here. But you brought up the issue of "discerning" and I responded to it. It's not that hard to go onto Instagram and curate a feed of great photographers in any genre of your choosing.With over a billion users worldwide, I am certain that is the case. A somewhat different vibe though, to our little community.
