Have you heard about “finstagram?” It’s not exactly a new term – it’s been floating around for a few years. But its connotations and implications certainly seem to have shifted around and expanded.
At its most basic root, a finstagram is just a secondary Instagram account. People open them for all kinds of reasons, ranging from privacy to sneakiness to all kinds of other shenanigans.
Here are ten ideas for how you (or…someone naughtier than you) mind use a finstagram account.
10. To be super extra
Why would you get mad about being left out of this?
9. “Being a hoe”
This…takes a lot of turns I was not prepared for.
8. Making your ex jealous
Was this the plan all along?
7. Drop some hints
Maybe it’s time to be a little more straight forward.
6. F*** the police
I think at this point that’s the sort of thing that’s gonna be pretty tough and needless to prosecute.
5. Scare your crush
Whoa dude, what did you do?
4. Get into drama
Anywhere on the internet is pretty good for that.
3. Hide from your parents
Darn those sneaky kids and their tech savvy ways.
2. Express yourself
Back in my day we just called this a diary.
1. Improve your life!
And now that you’ve heard its many uses, do you think you’ll get a finstagram? Considering I never even use my regular account, I’m probably gonna pass.
