Have you ever felt like you’re too old to be on social media? Or maybe just feeling a little self-conscious posting photos of yourselves? Well we’ve found one Instagram account that will help motivate you to take part in social media, or give some daily good vibes from profile’s subjects – they’re all senior citizens!
Instagram account Gramparents (@gramparents) has gained over 6,500 followers from its near-500 posts that all feature men and women in their golden age enjoying their daily routines. The handle itself is a play-on-words of “Instagram” and “grandparent”.
Most of the profile’s posts are of seniors just sitting and standing around in public, often in quiet places like museums and parks. Because the account accepts submissions, some of the posts look more artsy and really bring out the model in the seniors.
Some of our favorite posts include the seniors flashing their outfits of the day (OOTD), or interacting with fellow seniors in an intellectual conversation or over a intense board game. Here are some of our personal picks:
Many of these senior citizens could end up being an aged influencer like Diane Keaton or Queen Elizabeth II, and so can you! If you want to have your photo posted by Gramparents, just send it over via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Next thing you know, it’ll be you everyone will be wanting to follow on Instagram and Twitter, admiring your OOTDs and inspiring thoughts. Don’t be shy, and become the next Gramparent!
