Instagram can be fun. It's a social media outlet where you can share what you're doing, where you are, and generally show off those hidden Annie Leibovitz skills.
But like anything else, some things can get stale and played out -- particularly in places like Fort Lauderdale, where the choice for picturesque moments can be unlimited but are instead boiled down to the same old things.
Yes, Fort Lauderdalians, our city is beautiful, and so are you. So stop being boring about it. Get creative. Stop being like everyone else. Here are five Instagram posts this city absolutely needs to move on from already:
5. Cruise ships!
Yes, big boats are neat, we suppose. But enough already with these posts. No one outside of snowbirds and people who love 24-hour access to all-you-can-eat buffets likes cruise ships. They're just giant floating hotels. Why must you subject your friends and family to looking at a cruise ship for the 5,937th time. No one needs that.
Oh, look at that. You eat food. How original! Please, for the love of all that is good and holy and sacred, STOP SHOWING PEOPLE YOUR FOOD. You're not the first human to discover a restaurant that serves really delicious fish tacos. What service are you performing here?
Also, stop posting photos of food you've bitten into. People already don't want to see a plate of food on their Instagram. No need to ruin their day any further with a photo of a masticated burrito.
3. Beer! Know what's more annoying than "look at my food" Instagram posts? "Look at my beer" Instagram posts. Just as nobody cares about what food you're eating, nobody wants to know what beer you're drinking (outside of other people who also post pictures of their beer). Look, we get it. You know your beer and want to share some new exotic lager no one has ever heard of to show everyone how much of a beer connoisseur you are. Except that no one gives a single crap. Stop it.
2. Sunsets and/or Sunrises! Yes, sunsets and/or sunrises are superpretty. And yes, seeing one while on the beach can be inspiring. But when 12 billion other people post 12 billion pictures of the same thing, it might be time to start thinking about other pretty things on the beach you want to take an Instagram photo of. Like, maybe your legs on the beach! Just kidding. No one wants to see that either.

1. Gym Bros!
Fort Lauderdale is chock-full o' gym bros. They're broing out at the beach. They're broing out on Las Olas. They're broing out at the Hooters. And, yes, they're totally broing out at the gym. AND EVERYONE MUST LOOK AT ME.
We get it, bros. You're hard-core. Your workout game is on fleek. You drink creatine for breakfast and leg days are on Thursdays, bro. You ask everyone you meet if they even lift. We know you do, bro. No need to bombard our Instagram feeds with your broness at the gym every five minutes.
