A realization: Instagram filters are the new rose colored glasses. Just like the metaphorical spectacles of old, the app offers a different way of looking at the world – the bright side in fact.
What started as a degrading term for nice old ladies who love their cats has now become a proud identity for women across the world.
If there were a Social Media Acknowledgement Stock Market, ‘favs’ on Twitter would be at the bottom, and Instagram ‘likes’ would be amongst the top.
There’s something to be said for social media. It connects us to friends and relatives, and exposes us to worlds we’ll never see. It sparks revolutions. But, perhaps most importantly, it gives access to the world’s most (in)famous inhabitants. You can tweet at Beyoncé, celebrate the New Year with Heidi or even analyze Obama’s Chipotle order – all with the understanding that said person (or at least their unpaid intern) is speaking to you from the other side of the screen.

At first thought, who isn’t terrified to grow old? Because that means the end of your life is nearing, and hopefully it’s been filled with wonderful memories and minimum regret.

Sick of looking at a sad feed of selfies and fitness tips?
It’s not difficult to understand why you aren’t LOVING anything you’re looking at.
