I was wondering, do any of you use Instagram (a photo sharing app for smart phones) to share photos from your travels with your friends?
Personally, I think it's a great way to not only edit some your pictures, but it's also a fun way to show your friends where you've been! It seems like this app has picked up in popularity, so I was just curious to see if any of you have used it and what you think about it as a photo sharing platform.

1I use it and my username is @shinyshoestring if you would like to be friends! :)
My friends (back home) like keeping up with my travels. I wasn't a fan of instagram but I'm growing to like it, I don't like the idea of 'wrecking' photos with filters, but I take extra pics specifically for instagram with my iPhone.

2Instagram is definitely a fun and creative platform for sharing photos. It makes editing and uploading really easy. It also has a pleasant navigation system so browsing your friends' pictures won't be a hassel. Try it out first to see if you like it or not, there are other photo-sharing apps like Tumblr and Pinterest that you can test out as well.

3I see and yeah, I agree, I always take extra photos specifically for Instagram. I think Facebook is still my main way of sharing photos of my travels with my friends, but I definitely want to start using Instagram some more. I plan on visiting California in July, so I will probably try using it a lot while I'm there :)
