To My Finsta,
I'm pretty sure the majority of people are associated in some way with Instagram. I know I am. It's where you get to share pretty pictures or really any pictures you want with the world of social media. More likely than not, most people who use and post to instagram carefully select and sometimes edit what they post.
Those pictures are usually high quality and highly polished pictures, and usually consist of clever captions filled with hashtags and emojis. In a way, they give you the opportunity to show your followers what your life is like in moments.
However, there is a trend arising, and that is the world of finsta. A finsta potentially could be called a variety of things like "fun insta" or "fake insta". Typically, a finsta is your private life shared with people who are close with you. Finstas do not normally have close to as many followers as an instagram account. The captions are usually filled with emotional feelings and dramatic sarcasm. The pictures can be of anything and can be clear, blurry, friendly, of your dog, or what you ate that day.
You can share pictures and videos that aren't in the perfect lighting or at the right angles. A finsta allows you to be yourself. It lets you share how you really feel. It is an outlet when you are having a bad day, and lets you release your emotions without feeling judged.
There is really no bad reason to have a finsta, unless you call out someone that follows your finsta. Then in that case, you may have an issue. But remember you may be posting personal pictures, so just be careful about who you decide to let follow you.
My finsta is my favorite social media account ever. I use it a lot more than I use any other account. It lets me be my funny and weird self. I have no worries when I post; it's a care free zone. I feel like my finsta is my inner self being shared with people who sometimes aren't around for it.
My finsta is my life. I wouldn't be who I am today without it. Thank you, Finsta.
