Philately on Social Media

Author: Emil Drkusic
Date: 05/05/2024

In the today’s article, we’ll explore some interesting social media sites where you can find more information about philately, stamp collecting, and postage stamps in general. I’ll focus on Facebook, Instagram, X (Twitter), and YouTube.

Philately on Facebook

Facebook was not the first social network. This award would probably go to some of these- Six Degrees (1997), Friendster (2002), MySpace (2003). Still, it’s the first social network that became truly popular and is still the largest social network in the world. With that said, let’s check some of the most interesting philately-related Facebook pages.

Linn's Stamp News - “Linn's Stamp News is the world's largest newspaper devoted to stamp collecting. Founded by George W. Linn in 1928 as Linn's Weekly Stamp News, Linn's is today owned by Amos Media Co., a family-owned hobby publishing company based in Sidney, Ohio.

Each week Linn's staff of stamp-collector journalists provides accurate, timely and detailed news coverage as well as a wide variety of columns and features of interest to stamp collectors all over the globe.”

Philately on Instagram

Philately is a visually orientated hobby. Instagram is focused mainly on the visual aspect of social interaction. S, 1 + 1 = 2. Believe it or not, Instagram also provides a few interesting pages where you can learn more about stamps.

Philately on X / Twitter

X / Twitter is maybe not the best place to look for philately-related pages, but still, philately is present there too.

Punk Philatelist“Postage stamps are pop culture! Celebrating and bollocking philatelic design and the collecting world.”

Philately on YouTube

While it’s different from Facebook, Instagram, and many others, YouTube is also considered a social network. With that in mind, it seems like a perfect place to talk about philately, stamps, and stamp collecting, and add some spicy video materials. For philatelists, I would recommend the YouTube channels mentioned below.

Exploring Stamps“Stamp Collecting is the 'King of Hobbies'.  This channel explores the incredible world of philately through entertaining videos.”

COINS, STAMPS AND COLLECTIBLES“If you're into coins, stamps, ephemera and random collectibles... then you have come the right place my friend. Pull up a chair, get comfy and watch as I go through my collection of coins, stamps and other random bits that I've gathered over the years.”

American Philatelic Society“World’s largest non-profit supporting philatelic education and development.”

Stanley Gibbons“We travel the world in search of rare and high-quality material to help you begin, further and complete your collections.
