I thought to myself the other day “hmm I haven’t been on instagram for a while”, and I had a million pictures from my trip to New Zealand, Australia, and Fiji. So I started adding my epic photos I took with the amazing GoPro Hero 3 that we had bought whilst in New Zealand.
Although it is seen as a bad thing by many, I feel that the best thing about the GoPro is that It doesn’t come with a screen, so you don’t know what the pictures look like until you get to a computer and then flick through them like the end of ‘The Hangover’ movie. Anyway, I came across this little beauty of a shot, which I took when snorkeling at Manta Ray Bay, in the Yasawa Islands of Fiji.
So I uploaded it, and for the next 2 hours my iPad went nuts. I received 240 Likes In 2 Hours, that’s 2 likes a minute, and this tweet from GoPro themselves!
My picture had gone viral.
“To become extremely popular in a very short time; said of a website, blog entry, posted video, etc. on the internet”.
I must admit, it was an incredible feeling that so many people liked something I had created and it made me feel very proud indeed. Now i’m on the search for that feeling once more.
