I'll admit it--I spend more time than I should on social media. I don't do Twitter because I just don't get it--always feel like I have interrupted an ongoing conversation.
Facebook? I only have an account because my blog posts automatically post and some of my friends read the posts via FB. Other than that, I would probably cancel.
But Instagram. Ah, Instagram. That is my social media platform of choice. I have read several times about the loss of blog readership and blog posts due to Instagram and I have to admit that IG is fabulous for the very reason that you can post a picture, ask a question, and get a lot of immediate feedback. Easy and quick. Someone likened it to walking down the street and just waving at your friends and saying hi as you pass by, and blogging as stopping in for an actual chat. When I saw the short videos a lot of IGers were posting at the beginning of the year via Statigr.am, I was intrigued.
The first picture I posted (I'm amused that they call it a birth certificate). And it was interesting to notice that the first picture involved knitting, not quilting!
