“I try to inspire and make people feel better,” she said of her motivation to start her page. “I post good pictures, tips and motivational quotes” she added, when asked about the recipe for her popularity.
Just scrolling through her page, you can see the appeal – a consistent blend of conference slides, quotes for your soul, family snapshots, food photos and selfies taken with her ophthalmology co-workers.
“Fast and easy to operate” is how Dr Finamor describes Instagram, and on her page we are taken through her journey, not just as an ophthalmologist, but also as a mother, wife and avid traveller.
Instagram has given Dr Finamor the tools and resources to combine this love of travel with meeting other ophthalmologists from all over the world, as well as studying their practises. According to webstat site Omnicore, Instagram has 500 million daily active users – that is a large audience to reach when you are sharing the right sort of content.
