It’s creepy to request a co-worker on instagram who is Private that you don’t work with, haven’t spoken to ever but just want to see more of them, right?

Why not play the long con?

Start saying hi in the hallways, be chatty. Do you have any mutuals? (Like, other coworkers you're friendly with.) Chat them up, suggest drinks after work, idk. You can also do a search for their username and see what those weird 3rd-party sites scrape (if they they happen to be tagged in public IG posts).

Or just request them and what happens, happens. Who cares.

Mmk, but it's legit just Instagram. It's really not that deep. Instagram/Twitter/Pinterest/Snapchat lean way more accessible and open to the public vs cold-requesting on Facebook/LinkedIn.

There are so many ways to make this not creepy, just be smart about approaching it IRL or on the innernet.

Woman to woman: Make some shit up about, "Omg I love your outfit! Do you have an Insta? Can I add you?" (Or replace "outfit" with whatever is appropriate.)

Woman to man or man to woman: I'd really recommend that long-con approach - make SOME efforts to get to know the person offline and the rest will follow.

OP - it's your call. Seems like everyone has different levels of creepy. Who hasn't or doesn't IG stalk. We all take those deep dives. And maybe they're creepy too. Or even creepier. Then you guys can have a creepy love story and make creepy babies. And your song will be Creep by Radiohead.

So...let your creepy flag fly. 🇲🇺🇲🇭🇲🇼🇱🇧🇽🇰

I disagree social content creator 1. If they don’t consent to your request, they’ll feel uncomfortable in future professional interactions. Better to not request unless you actually know the person on a personal level.

Well, I would check how many followers they have. If it’s a small number then they probably do want to limit their account to people they know. However if they have a lot of followers they may have it set to request to follow so they can just get more followers.

^i wouldn’t say who cares about this. I would be creeped if someone at my company - who I didn’t know AT ALL- added me. Regardless of whether or not you’re higher up than them. It’s just business etiquette
