Instaham (n)

A person who runs every single cell phone picture she or he takes through the artsy (and now Facebook-owned) filtering app Instagram and posts the results to all social media immediately, regardless of anyone’s conceivable interest.

In a sentence “If this Instaham puts one more pseudo-retro picture of a random rusty doorknob or picturesque barn into the Prineville cloud server, I’m unfriending him.”
