Imagine if the Internet was around back in the day, along with social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, or Snapchat.

Games like POG's probably wouldn't have existed, and most episodes of Seinfeld probably wouldn't be that funny, or even make any sense. But rather than having using to our imaginations to figure it out, someone out there has done it for us, showing us how Instagram would have applied to the generation of Breakfast Club and David Bowie.

"If Instagram would have been invented in the '80s," an episode of Wonders of the World Wide Web (with Kinna McInroe), presents a hip new way of sharing photos. Ditch that photo album and get yourself a floppy disk. All you need is a personal computer and a personal camera with a color roll.

Just get it at your local gas station.
