We spoke to the curators of @fknaussie, an online library where this nation’s dankest memes are kept for all eternity.
Hi, @fknaussie. Your Instagram pics are fabulous. If for whatever reason you could only save three, which three would you save?
That’s actually pretty tough as we have so many but I would have to say:
That one because it’s a throwback but also totally relatable.
This one because The Wiggles were just such a big part of childhood for many Aussies.
And probably this one purely because I feel like it pretty much sums up Australian politics…a joke!
And your favourite Insta video clip?
We haven’t yet posted it but it just showcases many childhood shows we personally adored so its pretty nostalgic.
Can you please tell our readers a little bit about yourselves and how @fknaussie came to be?
Well, our names are Cassandra and Keely, we both are in high school though we both are on other sides of the country. I (Keely) started @fknaussie in December, 2016 and for some reason it just blew up. Cass messaged me late January and asked if she could come on board, and we have been running the account hand-in-hand ever since.
InstaMoments: What do you think is the main driver to people coming to @fknaussie daily and following you?
Honestly, I’m not entirely sure. I think it’s that we have a smaller target audience and the content we post daily appeals to people/the age group who are mainly on Instagram. It also gives people a bit of a laugh.
InstaStories: What is the main story you like to tell through your images?
To not take everything so seriously and to (hopefully) have a laugh. I find that our photos create a sense of community, so even in the comments, everyone is talking to people whom they have never met and relating back to the photos.
InstaFans: What is the worst way for someone to try and get your attention on Instagram, and what is the best way?
Well, I don’t want to sound mean because we are so thankful for each and every one of the people that follow us, but probably the worst way is spamming us with likes or comments. But the best way is to send us a DM or by leaving a nice comment. We always check our DM’s and love chatting to our followers and getting to know them.
