I know, I know, Instagram is stupid, why do we need another way to communicate, I'll just pick up the phone, I still like sending postcards, get off my lawn, blah, blah.

Okay, that out of the way, anyone else using it? I really enjoy the format: tell a story using my camera phone plus a few words.

So, a question for the users: Do we need a GRM hashtag for Instagram so we can find each other? #grm or #grmphoto?

And if you search for my name, you'll find me.

Please no. Only because I'm an old (is 42 old) codger that is sick of hash-tag everything.

I like Instagram, it allows a nice way to follow people like Magnus Walker and Jay Lenos Garage for good car porn or people in differnet scca regions events.

I've never been on it but I know my wife likes it. So it's like Facebook but with more pictures I guess? All I take pictures off is my pug dog.

I already follow both of you as well, I think there was another social media thread about 8-9 months ago. I'm @jamesaz83 on Instagram

I follow several people on here. I would much rather see the pictures a person takes than the tweets.

back in my day, we called that the pound sign... and we liked it, because that's what it was invented for..

I like it, for the same reasons: it's fun to tell and share stories with pictures. I'm on with the same username as here.

I have managed to avoid getting either an Instagram or Twitter account. That said, Jeff Zwart's Instagram tends to have some pretty great content, and I've seen some good stuff from the occasional Twitter post (e.g. from sports teams, race teams, etc)

Okay. Let's go with #grmphoto. In fact, I just tagged a photo with it.

And now there's three photos tagged with #grmphoto.

We should make this go viral.

My Instagram is primarily a dumping ground for powerlifting progress and mom-life stuff. I haven't been on it much lately, but that should change soon.

If you're going to be all uppity about it, at least call it an octothorpe.

In reply to novaderrik:

My phone didn't have a pound sign. Dad would pay extra for a touch tone phone just so us kids could piss his money away calling DJ Jazzy Jeff after school.

Edit: I guess I should try this. I haven't gotten into the Twitter and put most everything on Facebook.
