What is instagram?
Instagram is a very cool online mobile photo-sharing, video-sharing and social networking service that enables its users to take pictures and videos, and share them on a variety of social networking platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Flickr.
The photos are square and the maximum duration of a video is 15 seconds.
There are currently 200 million active users.
What I like about it is that it is so easy to use and it looks great! Everyone loves photos & videos!
Oh, and it's free!
You just download the app on your phone and you’re ready to go. It’s great for tourism businesses or any other type of business that sells a product and want to share pics!
Embed it into your website!
You can also embed a live Instagram feed on your website, see the bottom of the homepage of Destination Queenstown website: http://www.queenstownnz.co.nz/
Just take a photo and it automatically appears on your homepage! A very easy way to keep your content fresh.
Get started with Instagram for business by going to http://business.instagram.com/ . There are tutorials on the site. Set a bit of time aside to go through them and learn how to get followers, use hashtags and more.
