Social media has paved the way for a new type of interaction. The Internet has made it possible for us to share our lives with others instantaneously (and the other way around), and broadcast it across all corners of the world. Instagram, one of the most popular social media sites, has reached unprecedented heights. Over 700 million users weekly, and 51% of these use Instagram DAILY. And I have no shame admitting I’m in those 51%. Although scrolling through Instagram or tapping away on Instagram Stories can be a huge time-waster, Instagram can also be a place for inspiration. But how do we make it one? Who are we supposed to follow?
Fear not, I am here to help! There are tons of fabulous accounts from all around the world that I could recommend, and Balkans is not an exception.Balkan countries have produced their fair share of Instagram influencers. (*Although the word “influencer” seems to be frequently ridiculed in the Balkans.) Below are 5 Balkan Instagram accounts you should be following for inspiration and motivation. I tried to include something for everyone.
