Instagram has become one of the most popular social networking apps in the world. What started as sort of a “members-only” photo-sharing site for people with iPhones became a whole lot more crowded with the launch of the Instagram app for Android. And with the announcement of Facebook’s purchase of the site for a whopping *in my Dr. Evil voice* one BILLION dollars, Instagram’s popularity has exploded.

For those who have no idea what Instagram is, think Twitter with pictures. If you don’t knowΒ what Twitter is, I just sent you a message on Myspace explaining it all in great detail. But I digress. For all that I love about Instagram, it certainly has its share of things I hate – 10 of them to be exact. Here they are, in no particular order.

1. People who only post pictures of themselves.

I know you think you’re beautiful, but I’m sure there is at least one other beautiful thing in your world that’s worth photographing. Mix in a few photos of something or someone else so you can at least pretend that you’re not so vain.

2. People who only post pictures of themselves…that they took themselves.

Come on now. Not only are you letting us know that you think you’re beautiful, you’re telling us that no one else does! You mean, you don’t have ONE friend that can hold the camera and snap a pic of you. Pay a complete stranger to snap a pic if you have to…we’re tired of looking at your reflection in the bathroom mirror.

3. People who follow 700 people and post zero pictures.

This is a photo sharing site. You’re supposed to SHARE…not STARE. If you’re on Instagram and you never post a pic you’re basically telling us you have stalker tendencies.

4. People who ONLY post tweegrams.

Tweegram is great, but if all you want to do is post inspirational quotes…stick to Twitter.

5. People who post pictures with no captions.

The caption is what frames the picture. We don’t know what we’re looking at if you don’t give us the context. We have no idea that random kid on the tricycle is your second cousin’s neighbor’s third child (adopted)…if you don’t tell us.

6. People who post pictures of their second cousin’s neighbor’s third child (adopted).

Enough said!

7. People who post pics of their entire wardrobe.

No one really wants to see what you’ve got on every day…unless of course you’ve got #SundaySwagger like my man, Kevin Bond (kbonded)! LOL

8. People who never like or comment on any photos.

Again, this is a site for sharing (SEE #3). Instagram is for interaction. If you see something you like, click the like button. Throw up a funny comment. Don’t just stop and stare (that’s creepy).

9. People who protect their photos.

Why come on a photo sharing site…if you don’t want to share your photos? If you only want your photos to be seen by your family members and close friends…email them!

10. People who make lists to complain about how other people use THEIR Instagram πŸ™‚

Instagram is for you to enjoy. Don’t let dopes like me tell you how to enjoy it. Have fun, post pics, make comments…or not. It’s all up to you!

Find me on Instagram at twh_phd. Feel free to comment…no staring allowed πŸ™‚
