Everyone loves to take holiday snaps and one of the most popular apps for doing this and uploading the pics to a social networking site is Instagram. This is an app that is available for iPhones, Android phones and many other smartphones that you can use to take photos, edit them and upload them to the site in minutes. As soon as your images have been uploaded they can be seen by other people who you are friends with or who have similar interests to you. The app is free to use and each day there are thousands if not millions of photos that are being added.
Instagram is now being used for more than just sharing photos, it is becoming a useful tool for planning holidays and avoiding accidents while abroad. This is due to holidaymakers using Instagram to take photos of hotels and resorts – both good and bad and even of accidents that they have suffered while away from home. These photos can be seen by anyone and they can act as a deterrent to anyone thinking of staying in a particular place that has areas that are dangerous.
A lot of people will take part in activities when they are on holiday and this can be the cause of a lot of accidents and the reason why many people will come back from holiday with their life changed. Instagram users can take photos of what to expect on an activity that others can get an idea of how intense an experience can be. Having seen photos like this a beginner who is thinking of trying an activity can decide whether or not it would be suitable for them and this can save a lot of time and money as many activities are hard to get your money back from. Similarly a lot of people will hire a car or scooter while they are on holiday and go exploring the local area. Photos of tricky mountain roads or dangerous sections of roads can help you to avoid certain routes or put your plan of hiring transport on the back burner.
Remember that some accidents are totally unavoidable but when you have social networking apps and sites such as Instagram you can be better prepared for what you could experience while you are on holiday. So check it out and start to research your next destination and you could prevent an accident.
When suffering an accident on your holidays one tip is to take as many photo’s as possible. These photo’s can be used as evidence and might mean the difference between a winning claiming and a losing one.
