Today while browsing the loved app Instagram I came across a picture of from a gal I’ve followed for awhile and thought “wow her daughter is getting big”. After that I realized how emotionally attached I feel toward some of the people I follow. I feel as though I am part of their lives because I get a very tiny glimpse into their world via this one or two daily squares.
It was in that moment it really hit me how big of an impact one image could really make from a simple app. We live in the world of Big Brother but it can be such an amazing thing. There are so many people that have make amazing connections because of Instagram. I have and I can’t imagine it any other way.
Am I alone in this love affair? Does anyone else feel emotionally connected to the people they follow?
