    What's an Instagram? Can I just see it on regular interwebs?

    It's another one of those social-advertising sites for the Garbage Generation.

    The sooner we collectively turn our backs on these sorts of things and refuse to get our advertisements from them the sooner companies will go back to hosting their own things, in the own sites, and the internet will be a better place for it.

    I remember when they said that about facebook. Regardless of whether hipstagram specifically dies a death or not (and history suggests that in five or ten years it may well drop off the twig in the same way that say MySpace did, only to be replaced by something else) the move by companies to marketing on whatever the social media platform du jour happens to be rather than via their own directly managed web presence seems to be a paradigm shift not a short-lived trend that's going to go away.

    Probably worth pointing out that it's not only the under 25s that use these either.

    And Facebook IS the go-to Advertising Medium for the Garbage Generation to be sure - and combating the advertising industry is huge undertaking, but it can be done and won - embrace ad-blocking technology, do not click or purchase products shoved in your faces - let the numbers do the talking. When the advertisers see they are not getting results, they will get the message - they won't want it, but they will get it.
    And of course, spreading the word also works wonders - as does not signing up or participating in these sort of events on things like Instaspam, (in your)Face(advertisement)book, or anywhere else for that matter.

    One person cannot be an avalanche, but one person can start one.

    Join the fight - win the war - say No to Advertisement.

    Given that Instagram is owned by Facebook, it seems likely that it'll be around for a while unless it is subsumed into Facebook. Anyway I mostly prefer that companies use their own media channels to market their products; at the same time though, social media feeds can be a good place to dump superfluous fluff and little behind the scenes bits which would be out of place or downright annoying in an official media channel.

    How I read social media
    Facebook - Have my pictures showing my life as an unrealistic portrayal of how epic it is and then read my posts about how depressed I am.
    Twitter - The update on my exact bowel movement schedule.
    Linkedin - Endless connections of people I don't really connect with run in the "send this message to 2 other people" way.
    Instagram - Check out my dinner that I totally made and didn't get out a packet
    Reddit - We have really odd people and have grouped them by oddity. They are strangely protective and irritable about their oddities.
    Myspace - Where?
    Bebo - Who?
    Classmates - What?
    Youtube Comments - The lowest most wretched hive of scum and villainy known to man. The least "social" media there is.

    Your message needs a wider audience. Have you considered putting something on facebook about it?

    As a matter of fact... that was my last headline.

    This is but one small piece of a much larger net, and to reach the people one must go where the people are, and there are most certainly people here.

    Woah, what's up with all the complaints about the "Garbage Generation" if you don't like it just don't use it, jeez.
