The 9 People You Meet On Instagram (Of The Day)

From Complex.


THE SERIAL VACATIONER


This person is always in Bali, or Bhutan or Costa Rica. It's not clear what they do for a living (Retired jewel thief? Road Rules location scout?), but it appears to involve swimming with dolphins and eating mangoes. Go-to captions: "Life's a beach" and "Another day in paradise!"

THE DISPLACED MYSPACE STAR


A master of mirror angles, this person has found a new canvas on which to paint their favorite subject. A staple of social networks since time immemorial.

THE PROUD MAMA


This person has the most adorable kitten/puppy/human baby/Sri Lankan Tarantula in the whole entire world. Would you like to see photos of him/her/it? Haha, just kidding. It doesn't matter whether you'd like to see them or not.

THE FILTER ABUSER


This person would put a filter on their own mother. The worse the photo, the heavier the filter. Pro tip: a shitty photo with a sepia hue and faux depth-of-field looks an awful lot like a shitty photo with a sepia hue and faux depth-of-field.

THE DESSERT AFICIANADO


A cousin of The Competitive Eater, this foodie has a sweet tooth and knows their way around an icing applicator. Gmail password: tiramisu.

  1. Ha ha I get a laugh out of all the people on Facebook who post pictures of their food. Guess who else eats? Everybody on Facebook. Every day. Multiple times. Stop it.

  2. I've never used Instagram, so I don't know much about it. I do know that if by some miracle I go to Bali some day, I will probably post pictures of my trip, with or without Instagram. I also know that I don't EVER want to own a Sri Lankan Tarantula. :D

  3. Bali. They make bras there, right?

  4. I can tell I'm getting older when this technology stuff starts to mystify me. I think I get the Facebooks and Twitter, but FourSquare, InstaGram (I thought it was just a camera app) and Linkdin make me scratch my head.

    I'm sure I could understand them, but I just don't care to investigate.

  5. Lefty - my feelings exactly. I'm not even sure what Instagram does.

  6. Clearly, Instagram is a venue that allows people to get a second wind from the uninteresting photos they post on Facebook. I also thought it was just an app for an iPhone or something.

    I'm with Cracker about how boring it is to see photos of food posted on FB (or wherever). I have yet to see a photo of anyone's restaurant meal or whatever they cooked at home that looked remotely appetizing to me.

  7. I'm so glad I'm not the only one who doesn't fully understand Instagram. Until I figure it out, please enjoy my crystal clear unedited pics of my Girls Night Out, my dog and my latest donut. ;)

  10. I don't even have a FB account. My computer is rotary and my phone is anchored.
