The Instagram community is vast and curious about its own members. So much so there are now worldwide Instameets - where so called ‘grammers’ head out to play. KLCC’s Emily Greene caught up with some folks at a local Instameet at Abiqua Falls in Silverton, Oregon.

The next Instameet is Saturday, March 21, at the Portland Rose Gardens starting at 4 p.m.

Marion County Sheriff's Department

The Marion County Sheriff's Department tapped into social media to extinguish a party before it started. Early Friday, the sheriff's office says it began receiving tips from community partners about a large party set to take place somewhere in Marion County. Police say the party was organized via Twitter using the trend #Project NAT. The Sheriff's office tried to prevent the party from happening by broadcasting information and contacting the organizer. Around 9:30 PM, police located the party near Packsaddle Park with a stage, bonfire, and alcoholic beverages.
