My mum has no interest in joining social networks (she finds them overly complex) but she still wants to see these snapshots of life as they happen. I can be certain that anytime I go home the question that follows “How are you?” will be “Are there any new photos of Grace and Freddie?”. I don’t mind giving my mum my phone to flick through photos of her Grandkids, but we all know the anxiety of watching someone else flick around on your phone.
So I thought “I know! Why don’t I make my mum a picture frame that filters my Instagram feed to show only pictures of my niece and nephew!”.
