By now you’ve probably formed a clear cut opinion about Instagram. It’s the program we either love to hate, or just plain love! If there was such a thing as Instagram etiquette, or the ‘right’ way to Instagram, this is probably as close to anything we’ve seen so far. New York City filmmaker Casey Neistat decided to illustrate a few points. He does drop one word of profanity so be cautious if you’re in a sensitive area. [more]
For those of you out there who love creating art with your cell phone and using Instagram to share it – I got a great freebie for you!
