Hello Darlings, The other night as I was speaking to one of my friends, we got into the topic of Instagram and what it really says about a person. After he boldly stated that if I was to go based off your Instagram (@MartaTryshak) as to the person that you really are then I don’t think I’d want to know you. After a few minutes of deliberation, I’ve come to conclude that in many ways Instagram puts forward our most superficial face.
As he went on to point out that I do a great job growing and engaging my Instagram, it does not speak as to the person that I am. In fact, he went on to say that it is quite the opposite of who am I. Not the one to judge my character as looking at yourself from an outsiders standpoint is a mission failed type of a quest. However it got me thinking, what kind of image of our lives and ourselves do we curate on the Instagram? And yes, curate. Every single one of us curates the images that go up, in the same way that an art curator organizes an exhibit to convey the message. So what message are we sending?
