    I'm not on Instagram, but I've seen a few people I know on there. Am I the only one who thinks that it's become pretty much a gay platform for guys to take selfies in ridiculous poses, lips puckered up and looking for attention?

    It's not just gay guys. Plenty of straight guys on there doing the same. Instagram is cool if you just keep your account private and share pics with your friends. But once you hit the Explore page, you're bombarded with..

    - Selfies
    - Manicured nails
    - Food
    - Purses and jewelry
    - Pets
    - Random pics found on the internet

    Your list pretty much sums up instagram.

    I'm guilty of posting pics of beaches, mountains, natural scenery, and pics of my cat and dog. They're too cute NOT to post them and everyone on ig needs to see them. Baxter and Daisy. My loves. <3

    I don't see the point of instagram. I already have this, Facebook and other sites that I keep track of and post pics. I don't need to worry about another

    Wow...why you gotta call someone out like that? Let someone be proud of who they are. A little ego booster doesn't hurt. Builds confidence...there are some narcissistic/vain peepz out there. But it doesn't give anyone the right to judge. Be proud of who you are...that's what I always stress as a leader to my soldiers.

    I'm sorry but there's a BIG difference between having confidence and being proud of who you are than being an attention seeker and someone who needs some sort of validation. If you're proud of who you are, you shouldn't need any validation from anyone.

    I only have a couple of pics of myself on Instagram. Mine is mostly landscapes. I like to play with the different filters to make my pics look better!

    It's really only close friends and family that follow me, I have just 14 followers. And I only follow mostly people I know. It's good in small doses.

    Personally, I don't have FB. I deleted it over a year ago, and love not having one...IG of course has some similarities of FB- but don't feel as connected to the world or consumed by the application.


    I follow a lot of tattoo artists, photographers and of course friends. I just post a bunch of random ass shit, and yea...I am guilty of a duck face, but I do it jokingly of course lol. That look works on one.

    I think instagram is awesome because as a graphic designer in college I can post some of my work and get my name out there by networking and showing my hard work. Granted I also post pictures of other things besides my artwork as well.

    Now, I do think that selfie is a bit much, but as long as you don't try to do weird poses/faces, don't try to call a lot of attention to yourself and don't post a selfie all the time, then I see nothing wrong with it. But yes, that one is a bit over the top and ridiculous.

    How about you deal with your own life and mind your own business instead of commenting on how other people choose to live their lives and express themselves.
