REFLECTIONS ON >10 YEARS OF SOCIAL MEDIA


about me

Welcome to my website. I’m a 70-year-old, retired mechanical engineer by name of Will @viewsightandmind on Instagram, and am founder/curator of the following three feature hubs on Instagram:

@adventure_creatives
@archi_features
@diagonal_symmetry

I started life on Social Media with Twitter. It helped me communicate and cope during recovery from cancer in 2008. In those days, I used the tag of @cancermatters and I’m now looking forward to share reflections of more than 10 years on Social Media in my forthcoming blogs.

Social Media has evolved rapidly to the situation today where businesses are using its presence on the Internet as one huge marketing opportunity. Instagram is no exception to this. It has changed significantly with rebranding of participants on the platform from what we knew as “artist" and “photographer” to names of “creative” and “influencer”, reflecting steady expansion of advertising business. This has disenfranchised many of Instagram's long running users and regrettably current algorithms are aggravating the situation.

This blog will be reminiscent of the old days before the joys encountered by many amateur photographers and enthusiasts get forgotten!
