    Collecting cards on instagram

    How many guys on here also use Instagram for hockey cards? Is it popular enough to join?

    I've thought about doing this and eventually I'm going to create a separate profile aside from my personal instagram. I think it will eventually catch on. It makes a lot of sense and is a lot more user friendly than photo bucket. (Photobucket is awful imo).

    I use it, there are not many people on SCF whom I recognize on IG.

    On the flip side, not many IG people use forums.

    Lots of kids, not a bad thing ...... but in saying that, you can come up with your conclusions as to how some people act.

    Ive actually made quite a few sales, a couple trades and 2 purchases. Make sure to do your research, there is no "new member need 20 transactions" kinda thing like you have here.

    At worst, like the other member said, its a good scroll through a much more active S&T section. There is usually always someone to negotiate with, and its very easy to show off your collection ( and actually get replies / likes )


    I actually found my White Whale on IG earlier this month, and it comes along with a shield =). If that was all that would come out of IG for me in the hobby, then I would say its a success\


    EDIT:

    I guess I didnt really answer your question.


    1 - I think 4 or 5 members of the boards follow me ( maybe more? )

    2 - I currently have about 260 followers, but there are easily 1000+ people that are fairly active

    I use it (same username on here), and have made a few deals on there. Just be careful and if something seems shady, it probably is. Best of luck!

    IG is great for showcasing a collection or looking at what else is out there. Interesting to see the different niche collectors with decent to good photo quality. Also quite a few people put effort into taking the pictures, I appreciate that.

    Transactions there are much more likely to be shady and there must be proper precautions taken. As mentioned above, there are a lot more immature people or kids.

    Overall enjoy it for what it is....

    How do you find people to follow who trade? Is it fairly easy, just start following one person and it will lead to others?

    I have never been on Instagram and never plan on it in the future. Of course, I am old and fear technology and change, so you can take that into account.

    Just as I got most of my traders onto Photobucket, it began to get all freakish with ads and became unusable. So I started moving to flickr, and then they decided to limit your size. There is always going to be some newer and better something or other to move to every month, and it is only getting worse. So I stick to a few things I know that work.
