The birth of the finsta, otherwise known as a fake Instagram account, has brought high-quality entertainment to the lives of teens. However, as you enter the world of finsta, proceed with caution.

This ground-breaking discovery is an emotional outlet that can provide profound amusement for teenagers across the nation. The authenticity of finsta is usually unpredictable, hilarious and borderline catastrophic depending on the owner of the account.

Poor quality pictures and videos deliberately taken by high quality individuals accompanied by mini-monologues are essential for a healthy finsta. Your feed might include impromptu selfies, outdated memes, pixelated group photos or embarrassing screenshots of your friends.

Teen angst, insecurities, ups and downs of relationships, happy tears and sad tears are all expressed within a plethora of miscellaneous pictures and videos. Avoid getting out of hand and extremely personal; stick to a comical tone with the occasional rant post.

Finsta followers expect originality and dedication from finsta owners. If you don’t intend to use your finsta, delete your account and get lost. However, if you’re interested in joint-ownership with one or more friends, go for it. Group finstas happen to be the most amusing.

Pun-tastic usernames for finstas are a must. This might incorporate your actual name, or simply a reference to something else. If you happen to struggle with puns, combine the strangest words that pop into your head for a username masterpiece.

Finstas are anything but fake, so the label is a little redundant. This might come as a shock, but finstas tend to be more realistic than a rinsta. True personalities are revealed through the powerful world of finsta, leaving rinstas to expose only the attractive side of the account holder.

If you’re tired of being bombarded with over-edited and staged photos, consider getting a finsta. They are entertaining, original and stress-relieving. Social media can only hurt you if you’re reckless. Use your finsta wisely and you’ll be in for some memorable times.
