Challengehalf: Instagram Posts

by

I discovered some interesting, yet not surprising trends in terms of interactions with my instagram posts. First, I noticed right away that pictures with people, specifically pictures with people or a person as the subject of the photograph would be interacted with much more than posts without. I suspect this has to do with the fact that Instagram is indeed a social media platform for users to engage with each other and often the focus is on the user of each account. Second, I noticed my brighter posts usually garnered more likes. I assume this would have to do with catching people’s attention while scrolling, as users don’t often give each post time to look at and inspect for more subtle details. Lastly, pictures taken in settings that my broader audience were familiar with were more interacted with as they served as a common ground between myself and other users. People were less likely to “like” or “comment” on pictures if the setting was ambiguous.
