You may be wondering, what is the connection between Instagram and city planning? Even though I have only been an “Instagrammer” for a few months, I can see how the application can aid planners and even advance city planning. Specifically, it can accomplish this by doing exactly what Polak argued: capturing our imaginations with a vast array of images, helping us to visualize what is possible, and then doing what is necessary to bring forth positive changes to our communities. As an example, I can go on Instagram to find pictures of different cities and see how different urban design ideas have been implemented in real life. Of course, further research via the internet and other means would be necessary, but Instagram is a good place to start because it allows users to easily and visually identify locations and projects of relevance and interest through a search using hashtags.
