Who said selfies are not good? It’s a type of illness? The bunch of guys and gals gathered at Independence Square on Saturday evening thought otherwise.
“Welcome to the #InstameetColombo!” says @gavabolo with a hearty smile when yours truly and @roninkolla walked over to the gathering of avid instagrammers hanging out on the green, and handed over our very own #InstameetColombo name badges to start posing for pictures.
Organized in line with the 9th World Wide InstaMeet, instameet brought together a bunch of 30-40 Insta dudes and dudettes around Colombo to have a fun evening with selfies, cat photos, networking – and of course, sharing ideas for awesome instagramming.
And no meet-up is complete without gifts and freebies! Generous offers were on by The Curve Bar for discounts on drinks for using the evening’s event hashtags, our friends from takas.lk were also instagramming themselves out and offered discounts for using their hashtags.
On the spot goodie bags were also presented courtesy of #arugambaybeachwear for uploading a creative selfie featuring Arugam Bay merchandise along.
Bouquets to the organizers, and we expect to have this again along with #WWIM10!
