I understand that where I have them in my contacts but I'm talking specifically about people / companies from my industry who I'm not connected with in any way.

It doesn't really matter, I just wondered if I was missing out on something.

It will be from your hashtags.

Some companies/people who want Instafame use apps that will automatically like or comment on every post with a certain hash tag. You'll get a lot of "Nice!" comments from them.

I only really posted because of my Instgran pun. Sad

I assume it's the algorithm. Your contact has engaged with your instgram, then by proxy you've come up as a feed of interest to some of their followers.

Could be because you have your website address / Instagram suggest you to other people in the eyewear field? It's a weird one as you haven't posted any eyewear pics!

I am trying to find an article I half read about how social media / airbnb has created a new conformity in design/fashion etc - like those fellas, or that your standard 'hipster' cafe now looks the same in London, Berlin or New York.

Anyone recall reading it and have a link?

Those two nordic fellas are boring as fuck.

Middle one a bit better, but still nothing original as this guy is almost the same…https://www.instagram.com/d_watso/

Anyway, there was a user from Denmark whose name was The Meat on here right? People kept asking him about his hallway or something like that?!?!

What a circus. More intrusive than someones choice of art or music.
It's like how I don't envy photographers to see all of life through a lens.

Somtimes I wish there was some kind of online version of Ebola to wipe out all those instagram cunts in one go

It's a life full of Monocle magazines, CP Shoes and Acne Sweaters, but not a single personal idea,
anyone can do that, it's just screams I read fashion blogs and spend £400 a month on minimalistic designed garments

I bet the whole thing is a big circle-jerk as well.
