Something about Instagram

E-mail Print PDF

Instagram, heard of it? Of course you have, to not have heard about Instagram would mean you’ve been living under a rock for the last year. However, despite the fact that Instagram has taken the world by storm, there are many who do not know much about this revolutionary App.

Instagram roots in Instamatic, which is a series name of a kind of inexpensive and portable camera from Kodak sold from 1963. It’s so popular that there was still one style on the market in 1988.

Instagram is a kind of App applied for iOS and Android, which allows users snap their daily life scene under any environment, choose filter from the pic database (Lomo, Nashville, Appollo and Poprocket etc.), and then share the images to Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Flickr or Sina Microblog. Not only as a camera, it’s also a funny App with much social elements, including Friendships, Reply, Share and Favorite etc. That is right its max value exists in App service.

On 4/10/2013, Facebook CEO declared that he purchased Instagram with 1 billion dollars. With the exciting news, right in the morning of April.11th, Instagram sharply increased in the top of Apple App Store for the first time. On 4/14/2013, the number of user of Instagram increased to 40 million, raising 10 million in 10 days. On 9/12/2013, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg proclaimed in Techcrunch Disrupt Meeting that the registered users amounted to 100 million.

Instagram is a new social media platform that relies on its users creativity to bring it to life, by capturing and sharing photographs. Users can edit, enhance and add effects to their photos to make them unique and exciting. They can then tag their photos so that other users can easily find other photos that relate to certain topics.

However, how to have fun on this platform with friends? Here’s we will share our experience with you:

Step 1: Register Your Account

The first thing you need to do to start your Instagram journey is to download the App and register an account. Instagram is available on iPhone and Android devices. Once downloaded, you will be prompted to register an account.

Step 2: The Fun Bit – Capturing Wonderful Photos

This is relatively easy and more boils down to your own creativity and eye for a good photo opportunity. Select the blue camera button in the centre of your Instagram Navigation panel. This gives you two options; to either take a photo right then and there, or to import an already saved image from your camera roll. To do this press the double squared button on bottom left corner of the screen to browse your image gallery.

The key here is to be inventive, innovative, creative and unique. Take photos that stand out, catch the eye and provoke emotion or intrigue. Some of the best images on Instagram are those you say to yourself “I would never have thought to do that”.

Step 3: Get Creative – Filters and Boarders

Once you have captured your perfect photo, its time to get creative! Instagram comes packed with an array of Filters and Boarders so you can edit your photos to give them real character. Add a filter to your photo to instantly change the feel, mood, and atmosphere of any photo. All filters come with a unique border too, so you can add rounded edges to your photos or create the perfect polaroid style.

Through experimentation you will soon discover how certain filters and boarders work with certain types of photos. As you become more confident, you will find yourself instantly selecting certain effects, filters and boarders quickly and efficiently.

Step 4: Be Seen, Using Hashtags

With your photo looking awesome, its now time to publish it so the world can view and enjoy your photography skills. This is by far the best part of using Instagram, and for any business using it as a marketing tool, a vital step to using Instagram so that it works for your business. The first thing you need to do is add a caption to your photo. This should be kept brief but interesting. Describe your photo, or add more insight regarding the photo’s subject.

The next thing to add is the all important hashtags. Using hashtags in Instagram is very similar to the way that they are used in Twitter. When it comes to tagging Instagram Photo’s you should make sure that you cover all possible variations so that your audience can find your photos. Tag the location, venue, other people, anything that is relevant and included within the photo. This way when people search for certain subjects using the explore function, your photos will be displayed for all to see. This is a great way of increasing your audience, and for businesses, is a great way to engage and interact with your customers on a personal basis. Be clever with photo captions and hashtags and soon you will have a large volume of followers, this is what makes Instagram such an engaging social platform.

Step 5: Go Social

A great feature of Instagram is the ease of which you can share your photos through other Social Platforms such as Facebook and Twitter. As you are being prompted for the photo caption you will notice below that you have the option to select which social platform your photos are displayed through. Select which ever platform you have an account for before publishing your image. As soon as you press publish your photo will be simultaneously shared through each of these social platforms. The key to any social media platform is to “Be Social”. Follow others, comment on their photos, share their photos, regularly update and publish new photos. By engaging with Instagram as much as you would with say Facebook you will benefit from more followers and therefore get the most from your Instagram experience.
