On Wednesday, November 30th, both Art 110 classes participated in posting photos throughout the day on Instagram using the hashtag #art110f16. Up until I got to class at 1pm, I realized I had been using the wrong hashtag lol. I was using #art110OF16 and was confused as to why I only saw my posts and maybe two others. For this activity, I made a new Instagram so I would not spam my other account with things I would not regularly post. On my new account, “koisurudemi” (which is a reference to AKB48’s song Koisuru Fortune Cookie) I posted random things that I liked. I actually really liked posting random things even if they got no likes so I might keep this account and post pictures that are not relevant to my main account.
As I went through the hashtag, I had fun seeing what everyone else was posting. My personal favorite pictures were pet pictures and seeing what kind of drinks people got at Starbucks. I did feel a sense of community looking through all the pictures because for the most part, we were all on campus that day taking pictures of recognizable places or things and it was interesting seeing these photos from different perspectives. I thought this was a fun activity and I enjoyed seeing what my classmates do outside of class.
