Instagram has become the most popular social media platform among teens from all over the world. You can’t deny it; we all check Instagram regularly. The stream of infinite content and the simple idea and concept behind the platform never gets old.
When you post a new selfie on Instagram, you know that every person you are connected to in real life will see your post, whether or not they tap the like button, and they judge you subconsciously. Because of this, Instagram can be real anxiety for many teenagers.
What is Finstagram?
I first heard about ‘finsta’ a few months ago. One of my friends took out her phone, we snapped a ridiculous selfie, and she immediately shared it on Instagram. I was terrified. How could she post a photo of me on her Instagram without asking! She didn’t even add a filter, and it wasn’t a picture I wanted everyone I know to see! I instantly said, did you post that on Instagram?! she told me, don’t worry, I only put it on my Finsta. I was super confused.
Finstagram is described by Urban Dictionary as :
“a mixture of Fake & Instagram. People, usually girls, get a second Instagram account and their real Instagram accounts to post any pictures or videos they desire. The photos or videos posted are usually funny or embarrassing. Only your closest friends follow this account.”
Finstagram is sort of a combination of the content you would post on Snapchat but inside the Instagram app.
The fact that so many people are creating second accounts for a different purpose on Instagram reveals how strongly people are connected to the platform and how much more potential it has.
However, as Instagram continues to push through in building up online identities, there is a new change coming to the method that Instagram is used.
However, using finsta is rampant because it might bring you more followers. As you know, Instagram is very competitive. People are using different tools, such as Instagram bot to get more engagement and users.
Publishing a different and somehow unusual content can attract others’ attention, which is a key on Instagram. Instagram would realize what people are looking for, and finsta is one of the trends that most instgaram users would love to see. Even you might see some celebrities’ photos while making finstgaram.
There are even many celebrities that have a fake Instagram account to publish their Finsta. Fortunately, Instagram respects users’ privacy and provide the option to protect the accounts and content. Even if you feel that someone has leaked to your finsta, you can claim the content through Instagram support.
The reason why users want to have finsta is being comfortable and being themselves. At the same time, they are showing the pictures, selfies, videos to their closed friedns or family.
How does Finstagram work?
I have learned that posting on Instagram is like doing art. It can take a lot of time for me to post a picture on Instagram. We need to decide what image to post, ask buddies for advice on captions, and use a perfect filter.
We spend this time because we think that everyone will see it on our profile, and it can define who we are.
How to make or Find Finstagram?
To make a Finstgaram, you can get ideas from other finstagram accounts. Then, make a selfie with any pose you want. This is funny, and people feel free when making finstagram.
To find a finstagram on the Instagram app, you can search the tag. All you need is to enter the word finsta or finstagram on the instgaram search bar and see the results. Tap on the tags section and open the #finstagram. There you can see the public finstgaram photos.
Wrapping it up
Instagram has the potential not only to grow users but also in time spent online. If users have to check two accounts, they will double the amount of time they spend on Instagram; this will make them more likely to see and respond to Instagram ads.
