Category: BusinessFeaturedTechnology Comments: No comments

verizon logoA few weeks ago I ordered a new phone. And I thought it’d be fairly painless experience. Like the last time when I ordered my phone online, and the only shade Verizon threw was asking me too many times if I was sure about not getting insurance.

instagram camera logoHold the phone guys. I just made an Instagram account. For myself. And I’m not even lying. (Or at least I won’t be lying by the time this post goes live.) If you’re wondering why this is a big deal, check this out. Also, I’m a long-time advocate against the selfie; retracting now would be of serious hypocrite status. As well as an advocate against spending one’s life on social media … which is one of the reasons I’ve never ventured into this territory before.

But as more and more of my friends are opting for the photo-based site rather than Facebook, the safe and familiar place with which I’ve held an account since 2006, it’s time for me, too, to follow suit. Not getting rid of Facebook; that’s crazy talk, just revoking the previous Instagram ban.
