Instagram…

…is boring.

Well, maybe not entirely . I’m on instagram. I love looking at my friends pictures. I follow friends and celebrities. To me instagram is much more entertaining than twitter. I can’t keep up with most people’s tweets.

Just like on Facebook, some people post way too often. And I know twitter only gives you so many characters, but you have that much to say maybe you should be blogging. Actually, I take that back. If you have that much to say that is either entertaining, informative, or inspirational…then you should may want to consider blogging.

This is one of the reasons, instagram is the only social app I decided to keep. Some people can also post pictures like crazy, but pictures tell much better stories than any tweet or status update, in my humble opinion.

So why I do I say instagram is boring? Because I have way too many thoughts that I want to put out there with no picture available.

I miss Facebook for this reason. I don’t update all day, but I miss having an outlet to put out my little nuggets of wisdom, revelation and questions. On the flip side though, what really is my posting purpose?

Like I said in my last blog, I would post and then check and recheck if anyone had liked of commented. Just to have some validation. The most frustrating is when I would actually have a deep question or an urgent question, and people would just like it and give me no answers.

I don’t think social media helps us to develop socially. Some think that the power to post is to say whatever you want whenever you want. I’m all for free speech. However freedom comes with responsibility, and a lot of people on Facebook show me they have no discipline at all. Then others don’t respond in any way shape or form. They’re there to stalk and take stock of you …not to be your friend.

I do miss it though…

  1. Se que el Blogg es en Ingles, pero comentare en Español para evitar la fatiga… o.O, a mi me encantaría usar Instagram, pero para eso necesito un Iphone (y no lo tengo), por otro lado, creo que debemos poder cuantificar y dar uso ADECUADO a las App`s y redes sociales con las que contamos, Facebook en tu caso, no veo necesario dejar de usarlo totalmente, no así, establecer una cuota semanal en la que te permitas revisar “fugazmente” tu cuenta (eso hago yo), sin embargo soy un poco mas adicto al twitter, o no lo suficiente como para considerarlo una adicción… estoy totalmente de acuerdo con los Blogg`s, mas en estos tiempos donde siento que Expresarnos libremente es una NECESIDAD prioritaria en nuestra sociedad.

    Miremoslo de otra manera: nos encontramos taaaan lejos y casi de la única forma que estamos en contacto y se un poco mas de ti, es por medio de las redes sociales… a veces, en la medida justa, estas ayudan a unir a las personas!!!

      Gracias por comentar!
      En forma pura, facebook es un regalo social. Y no escribo para solo para maldecir Facebook. Lo que me pasa es que no se como funcionar sin el. Ahí encuentro mi problema. El próximo mes regreso y espero ser mas sabía. 🙂

    I’m glad you sometimes write on here; I am not on instagram. I have a like/dislike relationship with Facebook. I really try to limit my time on there. I’ve noticed I can “talk” to someone daily on fb and yet when hard times come i feel alone. Limiting my Facebook use really helps me to remember to see people in person. That is, the ones that live here. For friends/family that live out of state Facebook has been a great lifeline.
