Do you have snapchat or instagram?

Studies are showing how the younger generation are using these two apps frequently.  I am curious, does anyoneon here use either of these?  What do you thinnk?

@LaDolceVita - All social media is a time-suck, although all the nasty & overwhelming political discussions have made AARP less enjoyable than it used to be.

I opened an Instagram account last week. I followed a bunch of artists, but haven't made one post. And I've been back once. I made the account in order to learn how Instagram marketing works. Once I've learned what I want to know, I'll delete the account. 🙂

 

I may end up doing the same thing with Snapchat. Possibly Facebook. Maybe other social media platforms.

WOW - Are You Folks Old.............................Obviously most of you have no Idea what either Snapchat or Instagram is or how they are used.........................................

 

I don't use Snapchat because it is what the name implies - you send someone a pic or message - it appears on their device until they view it and then it disappears

 

Instagram on the other hand is much more permanent and it's one of the best and easiest ways I've found to share Photos with Family & Friends.......................

 

I'm guessing almost everyone here uses a Cell Phone and uses the Camera on their Cell Phone.......................Instagram simply allows you to send whatever you are already taking a picture or video of - to the list of Friends & Family you designate..........................automatically & instantly

 

You take a picture of that cool flower or the new Grandchild and rather then having to Logon to Facebook and post a picture and wait 20 mins for it to load and then never knowing who actually got to see it before it gets drowned out by Zulilly Ads or some other such nonsense.................

 

With Instagram - you know the people you want to see your pictures - have seen them and the stuff they want you to see - gets sent automatically to your phone or computer if your on their list

 

Instagram - Good for Young & Old - you should try it and BTW it's a Facebook Product so apparently even FB thinks something is lacking on their Signature Platform

We know perfectly well what these are. We just don't want to use them.

@mickstuder - Wow .. right here on the AARP website, you're using the description "old", as a way to put down others, who don't have the same feelings about social media as you do! And to assume that not wanting to use a platform, means we don't understand it!

@mickstuder  My interest is purely professional. I am studying timeline marketing. If any of these platforms prove to have benefit to either my work or my life, I shall take them up. Otherwise, not.

 

And what's wrong with being old, anyway? Believe you me, I earned these gray hairs. Every one of them. And I like them, too. So there. 🙂
