In this blog article I will help you understand Why Instagram is Important. The evolution of technology has never been so rapid as it was in last decade. Be it iPhone, AI, Robotics, Machine learning and so many apps; Learning app, Health app, Gaming app and yes so many picture/video posting apps
Whenever a trendy app comes along, there always a rush among people to try it then that app become the part of their daily routine and one such app is – INSTAGRAM. There are so many such apps available in your app store, but Instagram was the first, best one.
Who would have thought that one day by posting pictures and videos you can earn in millions, yes it is true and Instagram has made this possible? People from every walk of like are big attraction on Instagram, be it sports, Socialites, Politicians or Entrepreneurs.
Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger would have never thought that by creating this app they will revolutionaries the whole world and one Egg picture will garnered 53 million likes in a year on their baby app.
If you think this just a medium of posting your picture and video and get millions like, no you are wrong. You have a business just put that idea out there and it will get you customers, rightly created and placed Instagram page can fetch you more business than your walk-in ones’. So, doesn’t matter if you have departmental store or electronic shop, you could be a web designer or dress designer, motivational speaker or a singer, you have your own restaurant or startup. You can create a page and get it market on Instagram very easily.
Instagram not only the place for promoting your business or get your product promote by celebrities. You will find lot many interesting facts finding/knowledgeable page which help you increase your knowledge, You want to learn the coding; you will find many pages will verified accounts that will help you learn. If you want to shed some weight, if you want to learn to cook healthy and yummy food. Everything is available on Instagram. With the live feed you can also get in touch with your followers.
However, every good thing comes with its own dark side and Instagram is not untouchable from that. The social network is a hotbed of abusive strangers hurling abuse at other abusive strangers, who then all occasionally come together to bully a celebrity off the internet over some minor failing.
But, for a growing number of users – and mental health experts – the very positivity of Instagram is precisely the problem. The site encourages its users to present an upbeat, attractive image that others may find at best misleading and at worse harmful. If Facebook demonstrates that everyone is boring and Twitter proves that everyone is awful, Instagram makes you worry that everyone is perfect – except you.
When you open your Instagram app, everything looks fine however that that endless scrolling without interactions and no control over what you are seeing doesn’t leave positive impact on your mental health and overall well-being. There could be a friend in whose wedding you are invited or a friend who post how fabulous he looks after workout. Then some post how they are travelling from one country to another and here you are doing nothing but sitting on Instagram and scrolling endless posts.
It is true that whole world of information and commercial is there in the palm of your hand. However, with the increase in the number of users and several stories posted by them, led people to think they are doing nothing with their life, left them frustration and with low-self-esteem. Like other social media app; this also make you spend many hours in the front of your phone, which again not healthy for you as an adult and with the kids have exposure to it make things worse.
Like spider men said that “Every power come with the great responsibility”; we also have to be responsible what we are posting, how this will affect; our current socio-geo-economic condition. Also keep in mind that your Kids can on Instagram too; which will make you think of you otherwise. As the today’s generation don’t leg behind talking their mind out loud on social media and any bias post by you can affect them as well.
