    some thoughts about Instagram

    Hi, i a new member here. please correct my take:
    one of the interesting things that I realized recently is that people WILL run after a female" Instagramer", even if she's acting like a clown, rather than a male "instagramer" who might provide an educational materials to his audiences.

    Can't males be clowns on Instagram too? There seem to be some assumptions behind the take.

    You're welcome.
    However, that's overly formal and really unnecessary. In future, just click Thank/Like. There's no need to write a post to thank someone.

    Start every sentence with a capital letter and end it with a period (or full stop).

    Re: some thoughts about Instagram

    Don't refer to everyone here as "sir". It's overly formal and it suggests that you assume the response was written by a man. That's not necessarily the case.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
