Lets face it, Instagram is here and it’s here to stay. Facebook acquisition, adopting Android platform after rocking iOS and the very fact that social networking is about “photos” more than status updates. People like to tell stories/share photos more than anything and we have all been there. Initially pretending not to care about Instagram and then jumping on the bandwagon.
I do not credit myself of coming up with this idea. Photowalks have been around for long, spearheaded by several Flickr groups and bloggers. But it’s always had an entry barrier – the DSLR Cameras. So I wanna put a spin on it, combine the networking zest of Tweetups, collective sourcing power of bloggers, brands which are interested to connect with this group of smartphone trotting people and make it a fun meet up for all! Maybe even have a space to show the Top-10 photos from every such meet.
The Agenda is simple: Decide a venue to meet, Map out the path & start clicking. All Instagram Photos must be shared with #TheInstaWalk hashtag, this makes it easy to track the content & conversations. Maybe we can even have an Annual TheInstaWalk Day… Dates?
We will start with Pune & then see how this community can spread its wings nationwide or even internationally. Let me know if you have a suggestion or comment, just post it or tweet to me at @MrShri and follow @TheInstaWalk.
