What does “instagrammable” mean?

by | May 19, 2020

Everyone knows it and almost everyone uses it: Social media. Since Instagram and Co. came along, photos are no longer just photos and videos are no longer just videos.

They are #instaphotos or Instastories. You don’t just take pictures, you produce so-called content. The creators put a lot of effort into it to get THE perfect photo. Every day new word creations come up. So also the term instagrammable. Merely a fancy new word? Not exactly…

If you are curious about answers, then you should find a cosy place and read the following article further. 

First things first

We, Alex and Jenny, are the initiators of the app meisight. Why meisight? Because we were annoyed by hours of searching through various portals and blog articles to find spots. That’s why we made it our business to bring together so-called Instagram photo spots around the globe on a clearly arranged map.

Thanks to the link to Google Maps, our users can not only see in advance what these Instagram Spots look like – and get inspiration for their own projects as well as outfits and accessories – but can also be led directly there by an integrated navigation.

Through our work, we can therefore confidently call ourselves “Instagrammable experts”; and in the following we want to explain what this is all about and what so-called instagrammable spots look like.

What does “instagrammable” mean?

If you ask Google and search for the word “instagrammable” in the “Urban Dictionary”, this is the definition for an image that is instagrammable. Admittedly, a somewhat woolly explanation, considering the variety of images on Instagram. From travel content to outfit posts to animal photos, everything is included. After all, it is ultimately up to the viewer to decide what he or she sees as Instagram-compatible and what not. That’s why we limit the whole thing to its origin, because the term instagrammable comes mainly from the travel and lifestyle industry. Here, instagrammable spots are first and foremost great places that are worth taking photos there.


The real work of content creators

The HOW plays a big role here: Only the way the photo was taken, from which perspective and which angle it was shot as well as the professional image editing afterwards make the total work of art. That is why we equate the work of influencers, the content creation, with art. These pictures are extremely time-consuming and need a lot of preparation.

But the work pays off in the end: The pictures are real eye-catchers and almost seem surreal due to the meticulous staging and editing. This perfectionism is in turn rewarded with many likes. From this we can conclude that instagrammable spots are places that have the potential to serve as a backdrop for the perfect #instaphoto.
The more people visit the individual Instagram Spots and upload their photos to the social networks, the more reach an instagrammable spot gets. In order for the photo to be instagrammable, it is important to our users that one or more people make the backdrop with their poses into a special work of art. Ideally 😉 …
Only the pure spot does not offer the inspiration regarding outfit, posing and accessories that the meisight community wants.
