Instagram is by far my favourite social media platform and as an active user, I love uploading my own photos/videos as well as browsing through that of my friends, celebrities and companies profiles. It wasn’t however until I saw this image and read this particular quote that I knew that Instagram should be the platform that I choose to follow for my duration of studying BCM112.
‘ You are what you share.’
– Charles Leadbeater, We Think: The Power of Mass Creativity.
The image and quote really got me thinking about the impact that Instagram has had upon the 21st century and furthermore and what it actually is able to achieve and develop into. Instagram, since its creation by Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger in 2010, has since become an international phenomena and continues to develop and challenge social media platforms. Instagram, having been active for the past four years has already transformed within itself, as well as transcending to impact other social media platforms, and I am eager to follow this platform for this semester and see where it will go next.
