Rather than enforcing social isolation, de Guzman sees Instagram creating community. “People rag on social networks for being impersonal and distant - I find it to be the opposite, especially Instagram … it’s a visual medium, so language isn’t a barrier. It’s just as easy for someone in Japan to (engage) as someone here, so no matter what time I post, somebody’s seeing it without having to understand the caption. That has great value.”
