So I Joined Instagram

Posted 10/10/2017

We all see these Follow Me images for InstagramWe all see these Follow Me images for InstagramToday there are so many different social media platforms, it is impossible to join them all unless you do social media as a a full time job!

I, like many others use a few social sites (check my Social Media page for links!) that I post mainly memes on plus some other daft stuff!

Anyway a couple of months ago I joined Instagram. I had joined it a few months ago, got lost, and quit out thinking the account was gone and deleted, but lo and behold when I decided to retry and recreated my account I had followers! That took me by surprise! Didn't expect that!

I went into Instagram blind, I did not really look into it or how it worked. It was a steep learning curve but whet I soon figured out was most people will add you for you to follow back so then they unfollow you!

Mwahahah I worked that one out pretty fast. I also worked out how to deal with it!

So what is Instagram? To me its just fun. Its all about pictures and eye candy! All those hunky men....

I am really enjoying Instagram and if I am honest it is beginning to be my favourite platform beside Facebook, and may even pull ahead! I am not worried about getting huge numbers of likes and masses of followers, I do it for fun, for me!. I think once you get trapped in thinking you have to be best, top etc you loose the fun and it becomes a chore.

So I worked out people want followers but do not want to follow back. OK that's fine, but to pull that stunt you better have an amazing profile with mind blowing images if you have just a couple thousand followers or below and are pulling the follow / unfollow trick.

I have two types of people I follow. I follow and follow back those accounts like me, pagan, witches, magic etc, people who are like me. Then I have the people I follow and know damn well they will not follow me back as they have 10K, 20K 100K 20K or even a million followers! I don't mind, cos by god you are hot! ;-)

SO how do I deal with the follow me for me to follow back for them to unfollow? At first it was hard keeping up. But I found an app! For nearly everything there is an an app. The one I use is called Unfollowers For Instagram from the Google Android Playstore. (I am unsure about an Iphone version - I am on Android)

Anyway life got a lot easier, and more fun!

I was finally able to sort out the unfollowers, and boy does it happen a lot! At least now I feel like I am in control. I love looking at the feeds of others, why would I not want to follow others? I have not unfollowed anyone for numbers, I have though unfollowed some creeps, knowing unfortunately they appear on all social platforms.

One type of account I will not follow back is the "buy followers" or "free Followers" accounts. I dont approve of these and do not wish any association with them. I have never bought any type of follower, not on either of my Twitter accounts or my GothWitch FB page.

So I have been on Insty for a short while now and like I said, I do enjoy it. Do I have a favourite account I follow? Hell yeah!!!  rick_and_the_griffopotamus - but please be aware - this is an 18+ account so no younger sneeky peeks! It is kinda rude, well hmmm, very rude. I LOVE it!

Like all social media, it is easy to get sucked in, and take it too seriously. Unless you are in it for the business do not let it rule you. Be who you are and have fun. Once you feel you are competing or feeling obliged to log in etc, it is time to walk away and take a break!

And My Instagram? Its on my social media page. I follow back. But remember, I unfollow you unfollowers unless your account is very interesting or very hot! And that means in MY eyes! ;-)

UPDATE

So I have been on Instagram a while now. The biggest thing about Instagram is everyone wants followers but no one wants to follow anyone. It is the WORST site for people who follow you to get you to follow back then unfollow you. Once you understand this ploy then it makes life easier. do not stress over it, just enjoy it. And an app for unfollowers? It is really worth getting one.
