I Am Finally on Instagram: Add Me!

May 23, 2015 Posted by Tyler Cruz

Surprisingly, I am a very late adopter when it comes to technology. I stayed with my Blackberry until just around 2-2.5 years ago, I didn’t sign up to Twitter until several years after it was already out, and I didn’t even have an Instagram account until just a few days ago.

The reason for this is because with new technologies and social networking sites constantly coming out, I don’t want to waste my time trying to gain a presence on each one if I don’t know if they’re going to last (unless its a text message marketing flyer, because this one technique lasted the long, I’ve found).

I decided to finally sign up to Instagram for a couple of main reasons:

1. Some websites and platforms have social media prerequisites, and I found myself not being able to take advantage of a good opportunity a little while back because I didn’t have an Instagram account. If you’re using it for business, the number of followers that your account has will certainly influence whether other people will follow you or not. Luckily, there’s plenty of companies like Upleap that can help you get more Instagram followers.

2. I am not a big social networking “follower” kind of guy, but there has been the odd occasion when I wanted to view somebody’s photo they linked on Twitter or elsewhere, but was unable to because I didn’t have an Instagram account.

And so, I am now on Instagram!

Add Me

My username there is tylercruzdotcom.


So far, I only have 1 friend/follower (LukePeerfly), and I want more Sad smile

I have 10 photos and 1 video in my account so far, and have my account set to private, so you will need to follow me before you can see my photos.


I’m still brand new to Instagram obviously, but from what I can make out of it, it’s basically like Twitter but with photos. But… you can add photos (and more recently, video) with Twitter too…

So, what I decided to do is to use my Instagram account to share my photos as taken with my phone, and will only post my PC desktop images (screenshots) via Twitter. As a result, my Instagram account will inevitably be a bit more personal oriented.

My username is tylercruzdotcom though, so the account is made for the business side of me and so I’ll try to include business-related photos… but being that I work from home it may be a bit difficult. Especially since I don’t go to conferences. Perhaps I’ll include photos when I purchase a new toy or something, or maybe some shots from when I go real estate hunting.
