What is your opinion on “finstas?”
“I think that they are very funny. Usually, your friends follow them, so it isn’t like a lot of people are seeing what you’re posting.”

Lauren Stahl, senior
What is your opinion on “finstas?”
“I support ‘finstas’ because I feel that a lot of times on social media, people feel limited as to what they should post, or what they can post, because of the social contract that everyone should look happy on social media. ‘Finstas’ are a good way to express yourself and all your emotions.”

Brooks Jones, junior
What is your opinion on “finstas?”
“I don’t really mind ‘finstas,’ because I don’t have one. I can’t really see other people’s because they are private, so it’s kind of annoying, but yeah, I don’t mind it.”

Abby Blumenfeld, senior
What is your opinion on “finstas?”

that everyone should be able to see them because a lot of the stuff posted is for certain people. I think people should be careful and not post very inappropriate stuff because people could see stuff and get offended.”

Logan Dawson

Logan Dawson, senior
What is your opinion on “finstas?”
“I just don’t understand, like is there another way to post that stuff without using Instagram? I really just don’t get ‘finstas’ in general–I don’t see the overall purpose.”
