Adam Lambert has joined a growing list of celebrities who use Instagram, a photo sharing app, to connect with their fans. Instagram has become an obsession for photo-taking, cell phone carrying people everywhere, including many celebrities wishing to share their personal photos. All you have to do is snap a picture, choose a filter to transform its look and feel, post to Instagram, and then share to Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr. Instagram is gaining more popularity all the time, especially for celebs that want to share fun moments with their fans. Some big names already posting on Instagram include Britney Spears, Justin Bieber, and Lady Gaga, among others.
Unlike Twitter, which has a "verified" feature so celebrities cannot be impersonated, with Instagram the photos speak for themselves, and where they are shared from gives hints. For example, Adam tweeted an Instagram photo of his "glamily" from his personal Twitter account. If that is not proof enough that the Instagram account is really his, then what is? But actually there is no doubt that Adam Lambert's account is legit, because he even confirmed to a fan on Twitter, "My Instagram is "realadamlambert" cuz someone took just my name. :( finally joined. Uploading lots of fav pics"
Since this morning, Adam has been having fun with Instagram, posting photos all day on his @realadamlambert account. Although he tends to share his photos on Twitter as well, be sure to follow him on Instagram to keep up with Adam's latest shots.
If you're not familiar with using Instagram, you can download the software directly on your iPhone or Android or via the Internet.
