The Agony of Instagram- Post

The Agony of Instagram- Post

I found this article about a week ago and posted it onto my own Facebook page. I figured that it accurately captures the great problems with Instagram and how we live in such an image-based society that entirely depends on how others perceive us. The post talks about Instagram-envy and our own need to compete, or be apart of memorable moments to capture them and add them onto social media sites. Our lives are gradually becoming less private, and for some that is related to their own self-worth and how much buzz their Instagram pictures can generate. Eventually the article is questioning our Instagram posts and wondering how much of it is the result of genuine artistry and creativeness, as much as it’s based on presenting a cool and enviable version of ourselves.
