    I've plenty of Facebook and Twitter accounts, but the instagram is purely because I like looking at watches, and like taking pictures of my own. I'm not sure if that's crap or not, but I imagine to someone who doesn't care in the slightest about watches, posting photos of them on instagram is roughly speaking as ridiculous as posting thousands of times on a watch forum.

    Not "crap" if your talking about a specific interest,I was referring to all the tech we have that is just pointless chit chat on all those social media sites.

    Do the 215 threads you've started on George and Dragon come under the heading of "Specific Interest" or "Pointless Chit Chat"?

    I was referring as I said to other social media,and not tz.

    And possibly "specific interest" in terms of watches then yes.

    Bizarrely, I have virtually no photos of watches on mine. I do follow a few accounts that are watch centric (yours is one of them), but not many.

    Yours is one of only two non-watch accounts I follow (the other is an American professional photographer of vague personal acquaintance) but weirdly, I was following you *before* I started posting here on TZ UK. Perhaps you once slipped out a photo of a watch once.... Dunno.

    I'm flattered, and for a short while when I started my account I did indeed post watch shots.

    I love IG, and it's really galvanised me in terms of my photography.

    I just went a-browsing through your photos and spotted the one that had first caught my eye while I was searching for photos of Dornbluthen

    Accounts with high numbers of Followers (and, more importantly, Followers who Like / Comment), are likely to be extremely attractive to certain brands. It even happens in the watch world; the largest Instagram account by Followers, @watchanish, is hugely influential, and (one imagines) profitable. As for @Hodinkee et al, you can be sure that their IG Follower numbers don't hurt their advertising clout. Or, perhaps even their Klout (which was (is?) a 'site that actively rewards social media influencers).
    Weird how Charlie Brooker's Black Mirror episode "Nosedive" was basically this...

    A rare jewel.

    Back in the day, it was relatively easy to produce a list of "must follow" IG accounts for watches, but over the past couple of years, the growth has been almost exponential. Much of it is tosh, of course, but there are literally hundreds of thousands of people willing to like just about anything. I tried the same with Twitter, but must admit that I gave up after the first few hundred. Sorting wheat from chaff is increasingly difficult, more so given the apparent lack of correlation between Follower numbers and posts of any interest. It's a numbers game now, and you have to play it to be "successful" - i.e. #hashtag the bejeebers out of your photos (relevant or not). With the new algorithm, plus adverts and promoted posts, it's all getting tiresome, to be honest, but I guess it has to be done.

    Thank you! Watches are very much part of the style thing I think.

    Even though I'm not of your age demographic and my sartotial choices are very different (black - the Rick, Yohji, Ann Demeulemeester end of the spectrum) I've enjoyed your output for a number of years

    edit: and mines the same as my username here, though it's just photos of black clothes, architecture and BJJ

    Thank you - it's good you've found your own style - I think that's what it's all about.

    Thanks again for the kind comment.

    Having recently only joined the smart phone revolution, I have created an Instagram account. It's likely to be pictures of my car, maybe the odd picture or 2 of SWMBO and the dog.

    @seanphillips_sp

    I've followed a few members from this thread.

    I must weave the watch angle back in.
