I Joined Instagram Today And It's All Kinds Of Annoying.

I don't use a cell phone so how do I add fresh content to my page. Can I do so from my IPAD because I use my IPAD and don't have a cell phone because I don't need one? Do I really need a phone? I am such a luddite when it comes to a modern cell phone. I just have no one to call and that is the truth. I would NEVER use one if I owned one and they both frighten and confuse me to figure out how to use to their maximum effect.

Instagram doesn't let a person save a picture so what is the point? I realize people want to save their images and not have them 'borrowed' but I am doing this to honor their achievement as a cosplayer or sharing a cool toy they just bought and if she happens to have red hair, what can that hurt to copy one pic for a nice post about Girls of the Redheaded Rebellion? A little FAIR USE never hurt anyone and I think of it as an honor. I rarely put anyone down except for a crazy like TRUMP but I can't get his best tweets or instagram cartoons. That is cramping my style even more.

I need solutions here people.

I even need some kid to teach me some neat tricks I can do with my IPAD. I would love a racing game in which the IPAD was also the steering wheel to the race car of the game. Where can I find THAT?? I want to try SNAP CHAT but that requires a friend but would like to do it for my Mom and her grandchildren in Australia. Skype is getting to be a pain in the ass.

I don't do Twitter but Instagram is interesting to me because I an image guy. Much like tumblr. I just want a way to save a pic or two every once in a while. A funny cat pic. Gah. Just some FAIR USE images.

You might want to check with the posters before doing so, but you could always do a screen capture.

This is all Greek to me. The only thing I can handle and keep up with is Blogger. And I have a flip phone. I'm not even sure if it can take photos or not. And get off my lawn, you damn kids!

I'm with Debra. Get off the lawn and turn that crappy music down.
I finally got a 'smart' phone a couple of years back. I keep it
in case I need to call my AARP Road service guy.
