A Social Media Giant: The Story of Instagram’s Popularity

Instagram has been around for fewer than ten years. During that time, it has become one of the world’s most popular social media services. Have you ever stopped to ask the question, why? The truth is probably a combination of reasons.

 

 Why Is Instagram Popular?

 

Asking why anything is popular is a much deeper question than it first appears. Why is anything popular? How would you define popularity? Much of the answers to these questions will be subjective at best. However, the data does indicate a few trends that give clarity to the situation.

 

First-Mover’s Advantage

 

Although the social media service is fewer than ten years old, it is one of the oldest still in service. The first companies to operate in new industries traditionally get an advantage. They can develop the user base first. Thus, they become widespread before competitors can copy them.

 

Early Worms Do Have an Advantage:

It seems that the old saying is more true than we like to admit. Today some competitors have begun to gain ground. However, Instagram still holds a dominating share of the industry.

 

Humans and Our Fascination with Visual Images

 

Another key aspect of Instagram’s success is its focus on images. Image sharing is very addictive for humans. Our strongest sense is our eyes. Technically, smell forms memories more powerfully. However, most humans would choose to be deaf rather than blind.

 

Dopamine’s Role:

Dopamine is a key neurotransmitter in your brain. It plays a major role in cognition. You may recognize the word. If you do, it is probably because of its association with addiction pathologies. Dopamine is not a bad thing. It’s the way that your brain can tell you that what you are doing is rewarding. Unfortunately, modern social media hijacks these signals. Images are very stimulating for humans. Thus, you release excessive amounts of dopamine when you view them.

 

Adaptive Logic:

 

Finally, most major social media platforms use artificial intelligence. When the companies first launched their services, these technologies were in their infancy. Today, the story is much different. Have you heard of targeted advertising? If so, you are familiar with some of these technologies’ effects.

 

The Rise of Targeted Advertising:

Targeted advertising uses your behavior on social media to show you specific ads. You are more likely to be influenced by this type of advertising.

 

The Social Aspect

 

It is impossible to neglect the value that socialization has had on platform success. Everyone wants to make friends. Today, many of our lives leave us without enough time to spend with other people. Social media allows us to circumvent some of these obstacles. We can connect with the people who matter the most to us. Instagram is a powerful tool in that way.

And here’s a little useful nugget for you. Is there a private Instagram account you are dying to see but wish to do so anonymously? Try this new private Instagram viewer tool to satisfy your curiosity!

Model Railroads and Scale Buildings

Creating a model railroad must be done properly or it will not be in balance. A railroad is built according to scale. The scale for the train must be the same as the scale used for scenery and buildings. If the scale does not match you can have a tree taller than a skyscraper and your railroad will not have the correct appearance. The simplest and most common scale used is one inch per every foot of the actual size. You can go as large as you like but the bigger the scale the more expensive it will be. If the scale is too small you might encounter difficulties in assembling your buildings.

Scale Buildings

Scale buildings are a lot of fun. What you choose depends on your railroads theme. If you select a theme from the old west you will have saloons, hitching posts, horses and housing appropriate for the era. A modern theme will encompass skyscrapers, condominiums and modern restaurants. Kits to build scale buildings are readily available and come in an incredible assortment.

Your Imagination

Your imagination is incredibly important when using themed model buildings. You can go back to any period of any century you choose. Have an old fashioned schoolhouse with a bell out front set on a scenic prairie. Recreate the Victorian era or the Renaissance. You can have a thriving metropolis or a ghost town. The fun is in the wide variety of choices available. The key is to decide what types of buildings you like best and be certain all of your buildings are from the same period of time.

Placing Your Buildings

Now you have to decide how you would like your buildings to be placed. You can have an industrial area filled with factories or an amusement park right down to cotton candy and hot dog stands. Some people prefer a country landscape with fields of wildflowers and streams and place farmhouses and barns at appropriate intervals. As long as all of your buildings are the same scale your model railroad will be an amazing addition to your home.

The Grade

Your buildings do not have to be placed on a level surface. If you are building a ski resort you will have a high accumulation of snow and mountains. You can build a mountain and place a resort on a flat area on the top. This will add dimension to your buildings. If your railroad is set in San Francisco your buildings will need to be placed on steep inclines to add realism to your railroad.

The Fun

Wherever you decide to build your railroad in whichever time period you choose you are going to have a lot of fun. Your railroad become your own personal little piece of the world. The shingles on the roof tops will make you smile because you will remember placing them there. You will have the satisfaction of knowing you were responsible for creating everything you see. Creating a model railroad is a phenomenal experience that can be passed down for generations to come.

Horse Racing

Horse racing is a horseback riding, equestrian performance sport in which riders compete against one another by racing their horses over a set distance. It is one of the most ancient sports and played to identify one of the horses is the fastest. There are various different variations of horse racing. Countries have come up with their own variations of this sport including races restricted to specific breeds, running over obstacles, racing on different surfaces, etc.

According to one of the oldest archaeological records, horse racing occurred in ancient Greece, Syria, Babylon and Egypt. Mounted horse racing and chariot racing have been popular sports for quite a long time. Historically, these races and games were a source of honing their skills for the equestrians. These sports entertained the crowds and refined the horsemanship that was needed for battle. It was through these sports that efficient development of particular breeds and gear for sports evolved and their popularity resulted in conservation of the ancient equestrian skills.

However, in Ireland and Great Britain, there is a greater variation of the tracks in which the tracks are in shape of a figure of eight with severe gradients and cambers. These races are usually run over a distance ranging from 400 meters to 2.5 miles.

Another common variation of horse racing is the jump racing which includes running over obstacles of different types and sizes. According to the type and size of obstacles, the jump racing can be further divided into two categories including steeplechasing and hurdling. Usually, the horses progress towards larger obstacles and longer distances as they become older.

Endurance racing is another form of horse racing in which there are various variations of distance and time. These races are typically longer and may even last for multiple days in some cases. There are five subcategories of endurance racing namely Pleasure rides which range up to 10-12 miles, non-competitive trail rides which range up to 21-27 miles, competitive trail rides which range up to 20-45 miles, progressive trail rides which range up to 20-60 miles and the endurance rides which range up to 40-100 miles in a day and over 250 miles in multiple days.
