As an early adopter of Instagram, I am finding one thing very annoying these days – being mentioned by mistake, that is, someone uses @your-username in their post/reply. As I have a short username, I find that a 13 year kid who is just to excited to mention something trivial on a post or someone who just has fat thumbs and doesn’t take the time look at what they are typing before hitting that big send button accidentally mentions me. Annoying much? Yes sir!
With over 100 million registered users and 90 million active logins on Instagram per month, you can see how easily this can now happen.
I don’t mind if I am accidentally mentioned but please have the courtesy to apologise for the mistake… you never know, you might find that we both have something in common and a new friendship is made!
Here are some links to Instagram Etiquette:
I find on a daily basis that I could block and spam up to 20 accounts… so you can imagine my frustration.
