I just got the iPhone 5 after having the first generation iPhone forever. Yeah me! So I am downloading apps I could not run before on my old phone, and I recently joined Instagram because it seems like everyone else is on it.

But this just seems like a place to see the same boring pics my Facebook "friends" post on Facebook already and/ or take small blurry pictures of my own. I don't see the point.

So who do you follow on Instagram? And why?

Nobody! I have the app to alter my photos AFTER I take them with my regular phone camera. I just post the pics on FB, which I know posts them at both places, but I don't expect anybody to be following my insta but close family/friends and I don't really care if they have to see my pics twice!

I can't imagine not liking instagram I follow lots of my scrapbook friends. I take way more pics with my phone than i did with my camera now that i post them there.

Mostly, my teenagers and their friends!

You'd be AMAZED at what teenagers will post and it helps to keep an eye on what my kids are up to. I can tell which kids parent's DON'T follow them....

I also follow a few of my favorite paper crafting companies. It's so easy to post...much easier than a blog post.

I like to follow companies such as Studio Calico, Pink Paislee, Heidi Swapp, Two Peas.. but also crafters and artists that inspire me.

For me Facebook is a bit crowdy, I prefer seeing the projects (or any other photo) in Instagram, it´s easier to connect and chat.

...and I love the sneaks into the private lives, like Heidi Swapp, Liz Kartchner, Amy Tan and others share. It makes the person "more real" for me.
