    Then you should let your work speaks for itself. :) In my case, the true test is getting people to actually PAY for me and not just like my photos. :D

    I was never one to talk on the phone a lot. I blame my sister for it. You would have thought the reciever was glued to her head. Finally by the time she hit high school they actually got a 2nd phone line. Her biggest punishement was grounded off the phone. :aufsmaul::aiwebs_016:. I don't put up with gossip either. My mom will start on the phone and start gossiping and I will go, hey mom I have to go. And she will say "oh, am I gossiping, ok honey, love you bye". So, I even kick my mom off. Not sure if I am a bad son for that or not.

    I've only been on IG for around a year, but only really started posting on it maybe less than 6 months ago. My biggest gripe are people that only follow you to get followed back lol.

    I follow people that post material that I'm interested in, I follow quite a few artist, because that is my background, I follow 3d modellers, Design companies, wildlife photographers, people I went to school with that have interesting lives or live abroad, landscape photographers, Sports photographers. The list goes on. I keep it relevant to me.

    I treat IG as just another way to get my photos seen or speak to people about the subjects we have in common.

    IG can be a great way to get new people interested in you through others. For example, I used to shoot racing/drifting, and a lot of the people following me on IG and Facebook are from that. I've gotten a few sales that way too. That's harder to do with other genres, I will admit. I also agree that I primarily go for inspiration. I follow all sorts of photogs, much like Flickr.

    It has some frustrating things about it, but there's not many easier or cheaper ways to market yourself than spending an hour tapping your phone's screen.
