Instameet is  about meeting friends with activity with your newly found Insta! friends. I was surprised that this year is the 3rd time of Instameet. Damn!. Why I started social media especially in Instagram so late where I suppose to used it before.

Instameet this year was organized by owner Doyzkie at Crimson Mactan with the help of Lui. The theme of this year is “Friendship Through Captures”. The Instameet 3.0 was successful event to meet new friends and might followers of your Instagram account.

To be honest, I did think twice in attending this year Instameet 3.0 since my shift of my work this week is 10pm to 7am and don’t have sleep and look hagard because I need to travel from Cebu Business Park to Lapu-Lapu City which take for almost 2 hours and then 1 hour to Parkmall which I’ll meet Ram, Nhagz and Kath going to Crimson Mactan is the venue for the Instameet 3.0. The registration time is 12: 30 as stated in the email sent by the Instameet 3.0 organizer. But I was thankful that I did attend the Instameet 3.0 this year because of the reasons will be listed later.

Here are the Top 5 Reasons Why You Should Join Instameet yearly.


  1. Meet New Friends
    – Meet new friends is like regular in an event but this one is like different world of friends since most of them are in the social media world especially in Instagram. You might in common you will meet in Instameet.
  2. Team Building
    – Is like building a friends this time. Together with your group, you will play as a team which help to build bonding moments. Haha..Luckily, I belong to #TribuMariaBiradaInsta. Why? Most of the girls do have name “Maria”. Other team name are Team Focus.
  3. Gain Followers
    – After the event, you can share or follow your new friends in Instagram which they might they followed you back.
  4. Gain Connections
    – More followers, friends gain you more connections. You’re not also building friends but also a connection. Having a connection is gaining more exposure of your work to others which might help your personality, or even occupation. They will know what you are expertise and capable.
  5. Experience

    – Experience not only the world-class food prepared by Azure at Crimson Mactan this Instameet 3.0. Not the experience of entering a class hotel but difference hotel. As they say, People grow through experience if they meet life honestly and courageously. This is how character is built. By this thought, you’re building your characteristics in a positive and negative way. Another quote why you should experience Instameet, Experience is far more valuable than money will ever be.


Hopefully, with the 5 reasons I listed above why you should join Instameet can urge you to join next year and be excited for the next Instameet as I do. I’m looking forward for the friends I’ll meet next year Instameet and hopefully you can go also so we can meet each other.

  1. I was able to join the 2 previous instameets of iLuvCebu and I think the 3rd installment is uniquely great! Cheers to the Instagram community 🙂

  2. Wow, Crimson. Laysho! I’ve heard about Instameet many times but haven’t joined yet. I hope I can join the next one if my schedule permits. I’ve been obsessed with Instagram since God-knows-when haha! Instameet is a great avenue to expand one’s network.

  3. I almost joined an Instameet but decided not to at the last minute. Hahaha. It’s probably a great way for introverts like me to network and meet new friends but sometimes it’s meeting these huge group of new people is the main reason I don’t want to go. Also because I feel slightly old going to these types of events. Hahaha!

  4. You look happy in this Jomar. I heard about Instameet last year. Kath and Ramzy was there last year too. I haven’t heard from them not having fun sa Instameet. Yes you are right. It’s a great place to meet new friends and expand your blogging horizon. Yes! The food in Crimson is yummy! I agree with that!

  5. I was invited by a friend before to join an instameet but my schedule (AGAIN) hinders me from going. I would love to try this gathering next time. 🙂

  6. This is probably one of the things I should do so I could have photos with likes of John of the Christoeffer. 😀

  7. I have heard of instameet from John since he was the one who told me to start instagram. I’m not a social media guy, but for the sake of you know, uploading pictures, so I created one just this year. I find it quite interesting, someone following you and liking your photos, admiring your works and stuffs. Well yes, these instameet is a great venue to expand the social networks and maybe you can find new friends hopefully. This event seems not fitted for me as my introvert self will kick in when there’s a gathering like instameet. LOL. But given a chance, I might join one in the future out of curiosity. Hehehe

  8. I’ve never joined iLuvCebu’s Instameet, but I’ve seen most of my friends join the past two years. I think it is great but it’s just that I am not comfortable in front of the camera, and it seems like this involves a lot of photo shoots hahaha.

  9. I had such a blast during the last Instameet! I really do hope more people, specially our friends decide to join during the next ones!

  10. I’ve heard about the Instameet but have never joined the event. Sad that I didn’t get the chance to do that with you guys. Maybe next time I’ll try to attend the event. =)

  11. I was supposed to join instameet but then I was already scheduled for going to Dumaguete. Anyway, I hope I can join soon.

  12. Yes! So true! Been an active participant during Instameetups and it never fails to amaze me! New friends, new connections, and new memories! <3

  13. Is that really the real reason you join an InstaMeet? Not to meet girls and find forever?? Come on, you are underutilizing the opportunities available in meet-ups. Many say they wanna meet you friends but they are content with having new acquaintances. I hope next time you would really “exploit” the situation.
