Whether or not you’re familiar with Instagram, you’ve probably seen the fruits of its massive popularity around the internet. Whether it’s the inexplicable hash tags on photos your friends post to facebook or the artsy filters your kid adds to everything she texts you while you’re on the road, chances are pretty darn good that you’ve seen an Instagram photo.
So here’s the lowdown on what Instagram actually is. It’s a free photo-taking and photo-sharing application, built primarily for your phone. Once you take a picture, there are over 15 different filter options to provide artistic tints to each of your photos. Each filter option also has a unique border you can add to give it an extra effect. These are then tagged (for example #breakfastcereal #mondays) as a photo caption and added to a huge database where friends and strangers alike can enjoy and share pictures you snap in your day-to-day life.
We recently were informed that #westernstar and #westernstartrucks have been a steadily growing series of tags over the last few months. We had to see for ourselves, and we’ve got to tell you, there are some gorgeous amateur shots of Stars, fans, our trade show booths, and more out there from enthusiasts just like our Star Nation members.
From Western Star tattoos to glamour shots of custom interiors, it’s pretty much all there. If you want to take a look, you can head over to a site like statigr.am and search for the key words relating to your trucking interests or go ahead and create an account on Instagram itself.
Once you start snapping shots of your life as a Star owner or enthusiast, you can bet we want to see them all! Be sure to leave us a link to your account in the comments so we can admire your work.
