Everything You Need To Know About Instagram

When it comes to the social networks, Instagram is still fairly new and there are people out there who do not know how to use it properly. This puts many people off joining, but it is not difficult at all.

If they just took the time to have a look at the App and website, they will see that it is fairly easy to use.

If you want to join Instagram but you are put off by not knowing how to use it, then you should read ahead to know everything there is to know about Instagram.

What is Instagram?

Instagram is a social network that works with pictures only. When you sign up, you are given a profile and you can fill in some details about you, but after that, it is all pictures.

You take a picture, upload it to the App on your phone, or to the website on your computer and then you can give it a name, some tags, and you can even apply a filter.

You can choose to share the picture to other social networks, like Facebook and Twitter, and then once you push share, the picture is live and other people can see it on your profile.

Friends

Like other social networks, you can add your friends so that you see their pictures on your news feed and they see yours on theirs. They don’t have to be your friend in real life, but it is better to start off with people that you actually know.

You could also add businesses as friends. For example, if you like taking pictures of sneakers, then you can add all the brands and some of the famous collectors.

Then other people with similar interests will see you on their friends list and they will be more likely to add you as their friend. Once this happens, you will be branching out and you might have friends who you have never met in person.

Tags

You might be wondering what a tag is, since it is mentioned above. Well, a tag is a describing statement or name about your image. For example, if you have a picture of a hotel in Las Vegas, you can tag it with the name of the hotel and the location.

A tag always starts off with a hashtag, so it is easy to find. Then, users will search for keywords and your image will appear in the search results for that tag. Once more people can see your picture, you will start to get a lot more friends.

If you don’t add a tag to your image, then no one will see it. Only the people who are on your friends list will be able to see the image. If you want your images to be kept private, then this is fine, but if you want more friends with similar interests, then you should tag your images.

Limit

People tend to go over the top with their tags. They could have an image with over 20 tags on the image. The image will be listed in the search results for these tags, but Instagram will start to limit the amount of tags you use.

If you want to add more friends and reach more people, then you should use your tags wisely. You might be finding out which tag is the most popular and then uploading a picture for that tag.
