Now animals have invaded Instagram and are even getting verified and when I look at my account on IG I feel like this :
Not even up to 1k followers as at the time of writing this post (Which is quite weird despite the fact almost 150K People visit this blog every month ). Plus there’s no blue tick yet and I’m wondering what’s up with my Instagram account.
If you’re reading this – Please this is an honest plea to support by following @naijatechguy on IG . I’d follow back. Let me continue my wailing though – Here are the 15 Animals that got me thinking what my account has done to Instagram – (Credits to INSTYLE for curation)
1. @MarnieTheDog – 2M Followers
2. @nala_cat -3.6M Followers
With over three million followers, 6-year-old Nala is a force to be reckoned with on Instagram. Adopted from a shelter when she was just a kitten, the Siamese and Tabby mix has impressively long whiskers and frequently joins her human mom on outings to the store. She also loves a good accessory, and often wears bandannas from her own collection.
3. @hamlet_the_piggy -337K Followers
Hamlet is a 3-year-old mini micro pig based in L.A., and she’s a total Hollywood junkie. Known for her obsession with watching The Real Housewives and other reality TV staples like The Bachelor, Hamlet loves to watch drama unfold—and she’s become a star in her own right. Reese Witherspoon is among those who have regrammed the pig, whose “homies” call her Hammy for short.
4. @itsdougthepug -3.5M Followers
It’s hard to find a cooler canine than Doug. He hits up music festivals, rocks amazing costumes (i.e., Harry Potter and “Chance the Pugger”), and poses for selfies like a total boss. Having dubbed himself the “King of Pop Culture,” the pug’s posts are unmatched, and his recently-published first book was a New York Times bestseller, to boot.
5 [email protected] – 210k Followers
Granted, Neville has a slight advantage to taking on the social media world since he calls Marc Jacobs “Dad.” But the bull terrier has established himself as a pup worth following on his own. He documents his life of leisure as he travels the globe, but he balances his luxe snaps with relatable posts that remind fans he’s really just a normal dog at heart.
6 @iamlilbub -1.8M Followers
Bub has dubbed herself a “one of a kind magical space cat,” and a scroll through her feed supports that claim. The wide-eyed kitty was born with an array of genetic abnormalities that will keep her looking forever kitten-like, including a case of dwarfism, extra toes, osteopetrosis, and a lack of teeth that makes her tongue constantly visible. Despite her physical challenges, Bub is a healthy feline with a sweet face and a positive attitude—or, rather, cattitude.
7. @pumpkintheraccoon -1.5M Followers
Pumpkin is no average raccoon. Rescued by a human family in the Bahamas when she was young, Pumpkin quickly adapted to domestic life—and bonded with her two canine siblings. She spends most of her time snuggling with the dogs, scouring the kitchen for snacks, and curling up on the couch.
8. @manny_the_frenchie -1.1M Followers
The 5-year-old Frenchie prides himself on charity work, supporting multiple animal rescue organizations and encouraging his followers to give back, too. Of course, so many philanthropic efforts can tire a pup out—which is likely why Manny frequently shares photos of himself, mid-nap (and often snuggled up next to his little brother, Frank)
9. @realdiddykong – 1M Followers
Another New York Times bestseller, Crusoe “the celebrity Dachshund” has a larger-than-life personality. He’s channeled his inner Carrie Bradshaw with a blonde curled wig, cruised the bar scene looking for babes, and even tried his paws at knitting—all of which made for hilarious ‘grams. There’s nothing this self-described “Wiener Dog Extroardinaire” is afraid to tackle, and we love him for it.
11 @chinnybuddy -108K Followers
Mr. Bagel the Chinchilla likes naps and treats—but most importantly, he knows the true value of a good photo prop. From mini bicycles and party hats to tiny shopping carts and furniture, this chinchilla can make any old object look downright cute when posing for his ‘grams. Also worth noting: he’s a total pro at winking.
12 @harlowandsage -1.6M Followers
The account that initially followed the adventures of Harlow, a Weimaraner, and her sister Sage, a Miniature Dachshund, has continued on following Sage’s passing in 2013. Now, Harlow has new sisters by her side: Indiana and Reese, both Miniature Dachshunds. The trio does everything together, from taking cuddly group naps to posing in matching accessories. Their bond is undeniable, and we can’t seem to get enough.
13 @juniperfoxx – 2.3M followers
Venus the “Two Face Cat” has garnered plenty of attention thanks to her unusual half-black, half-orange face split right down the center. With one green eye and one blue, the famous feline knows how to work her striking angles for a close-up—and she does it well.
15 [email protected] – 355K Followers
Arguably the most fashion-forward animal on Instagram, Bodhi—aka Menswear Dog—doesn’t mess around when it comes to style. Whether he’s chilling at home in a comfy sweater or decked out in a tux for a night out, the Shiba Inu is canine chic, 24/7. His accessories game is on point, too, ranging from sunglasses and fedoras to bandanas and bowties. Bodhi never wears the same look twice, which keeps us coming back for more
Well that’s all for now Fam. If you have any post suggestions send them to me on WhatsApp +2348134375481. Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram – @naijatechguy and also share this post. Have an amazing day ahead
iTunes is going to be shut down officially
After almost two decades of service, Apple is reportedly dumping iTunes.
It first started off as rumors, but now it is going to be made official at WWDC in just a few hours.
Before this, you might have noticed that the Instagram and Facebook page of iTunes has had a slight change.
Posts on both pages has been entirely deleted – Apple’s move at shifting away from iTunes links, I guess.
Before this, there has been separate apps for music on its mobile devices, however, not available for Mac OS.
Relating to that, there is supposedly going to be an announcement for three separate apps for its music, TV and podcasts, and hopefully they’ll also be available for Mac Books.
We’ll just keep our fingers crossed for this and other big announcements at WWDC.
Google Stadia – The Future Of Gaming Or Not ? – Reader Opinion
A few weeks ago, Google announced the release of Google Stadia a new state of the art gaming platform that would change gaming as we know it apparently.
This has been met with a lot of skepticism in the gaming community if this is going to actually work but I believe Stadia has what it takes to change the whole console gaming model that we have been used to for years, However, it would take some time to actually give Microsoft and Sony a run for their money.
Google Stadia actually got me thinking Sony’s Playstation and Microsoft’s Xbox would have a strong problem to contend with when it fully launches this year. Google Stadia’s cross-platform play is something I’m looking forward to, so you can play hardware intensive games on a system or phone with low specs.
Imagine playing PUBG or FIFA on a 1GB RAM Phone or Laptop and it runs without any lagging or glitches. So it’s practically goodbye to having to get a new system to play some games if they are available on Stadia.
I decided to put out this question to you guys on facebook and I was pretty impressed with the replies I got.
Google Stadia Reader Opinion
Apeh Ikechukwu said – Even if it will be the beginning of the end for PlayStation 4 and Xbox, it will take time… A very long time for it to gain popularity and to be accepted by all.
What if it becomes more expensive? That you have to pay huge to access it?
George Oz said – I don’t think to gain popularity is a problem, the announcement alone gathered enough publicity online. And yes it is definitely the end for others Like x-Box and co…Sometimes let’s learn to think Outside the Box.
Osazeme Usen said – Stadia will take quite a long while to catch on. Internet speed is still an issue in most nations of the world. In the long run, stadia will eventually be cheaper than owning a console and purchasing games but that’s not going to happen anytime soon.
Olusola Glory Olamide said – Before we throw those Xboxes, PlayStations, Nintendo Switches and stuffs to the bin of history we have questions to answer.
Will most gamers’ broadband connections be fast enough to make a streaming service of that proposition? Will developers all come on board? And is Google the right company to trust with the future of the games industry? Though we’ve got Apple on board and Facebook, Microsoft, Amazon are also in the launch plus Sony Nintendo and others won’t stay put.
ューセッ州 小岩 マサチ said – I feel we will have to pay for most of the games…and Nigeria’s 4g speed is about 2mb/s.
Samuel Jarvis Adeyemi said -Stadia is a good innovation from Google and I think it’s great since gaming could be done on a device, they said it would be super fast even cheating the speed of light in 4k Res without a glitch.
Anyways Google is the software boss, I think they can do it.
I hope Xbox and PS4 meet up but cloud gaming is not really their stuff. And Google has the resources.
Swiss Alex said – well mainly I would say Google Stadia is a welcome development but Xbox and the ps4 has to upgrade too
Google Stadia Reader Opinion – Join The Conversation
Google Stadia looks like something that would work very well in countries with very fast broadband connections for now. Hopefully, Google would find a way to bridge the gap and fix things before it gets rolled out to Africa and Asia. Nevertheless, it’s a win for gamers with this. So what’s your take on this?
