Meet My Friends (I met them on Instagram) by HelloJesso

Last year I wrote a post about my family on Instagram. Well, here's a post about my friends that I met via Instagram.

People always told me to be wary of meeting people on the internet, but I have met some of the nicest people on Instagram.

When I lived in London there is no way you would catch me meeting anybody from the internet. I mean, they could be all kinds of crazy! Plus, I already had my nearest and dearest friends that I had known for years and years. Why would I need new friends?

However, moving to a new country meant I had to be more open to new ways of meeting people. I met a few people through an expat forum, but the majority of my friends have come from Instagram.

I started using Instagram more when I moved to Hong Kong with the intention of documenting my time here and as a way of showing friends and family back home what I was seeing. I never thought for a moment I would meet so many awesome people who would make me laugh and inspire me.

Not only has Instagram given me the opportunity to make friends in my new city, I've also made new friends in my home city and lots of other places around the world.

Here's a short video to introduce you to some  of the people I have been lucky enough to meet.
When you're done watching the video - you should definitely check them out on Instagram.

If you're moving somewhere new, remember to be open to opportunities to meet people. You never know who you might meet.

Of course, you should still be smart when meeting anyone from the internet. Be safe. Let people know who you're meeting, where you're going, and make sure it's a public place.
