I use Instagram to follow hand selected photographers to see their work and get some inspiration. I give a fuck about hundreds of likes but I am happy when certain people I know comment or like my images. It is more like an always changing exhibition that is carefully curated by me.

I think it's important to print your photos and show them in the real world to real people. Maybe you print your own magazine (like I do) or do an exhibition (in a Café or even under a bridge without permission). Instagram is for the lazy ones and you can't look behind the machinery that drives the whole thing. And if you collecting followers to get that "K" behind the count, you are wasting your lifetime with stupid things.
