Any regular person going through Instagram watching the sunset over the mountains, the perfect shot, cropped precisely, glossy perfection of the very great work by the travel enthusiasts on Instagram, would be jealous dreaming of the perfect vacation such as theirs – it is totally normal to feel that way, their feeds are absolutely mesmerizing.

Nowadays, it’s clear that everyone chooses their vacation based on how ‘Instagrammable’ the holiday pictures would be!

It’s not wrong to say that the perfect online life is becoming the real life – it already has the power to effect real life decisions.

Majority of the world’s population admits that most influential factor on deciding a location is how appealing their holidays would appear on social media and the estimated number of likes or ‘heart’ reacts. – Instagram specifically.

What exactly is an Instagram worthy vacation?

The answer is short and sweet, it’s anything and everything taken in a particular angle with the perfect Instagram filter. Most of all the picture you’re about to Instagram must evoke emotions mainly jealousy and inspiration.

But hey! Unless you are specifically a food blogger, food pictures should be limited. A good tip is that before posting the picture, ask yourself. Will this picture make them hungry or throw up.

Do not post more than three pictures a day, spamming is the main cause of losing your valuable followers. Moreover please, reduce your love for hashtags that was so yesterday – one or two is acceptable though.

Plus note: if the picture you posted gets less than 11 likes, take it down immediately. Sorry to say but that picture sucks - Do not like your own Instagram post by any means.
