With all of the new social media trends out there nowadays, it can be hard to keep up. From Facebook to Twitter to Snapchat, it’s nearly impossible to keep everything straight. However, if there’s one social media site that’s taking the world by storm, it’s Instagram. This innovative site lets you follow your friends, family, celebrities, and even strangers with similar interests while posting photos to share with your own followers.
Do you want to jump on the Instagram bandwagon but don’t know where to start? Here are a few steps to follow to set you up for Instagram success:
- Get the app – If you are like the majority of users, who access Instagram through their smartphones, you’ll want to start by downloading the app.
- Create an account – The next step is to register by choosing a unique username and password. You’ll also want to choose a profile picture, write a brief character bio, and, if you’d like, update your privacy settings.
- Followers – Next, you’ll want to begin following other users. By syncing your Instagram with your other social media accounts – like Facebook and Twitter – you will be able to easily find people you know. You can also search for your favorite celebrities, who almost always have their own account. Once you start following friends, you’ll be surprised how quickly you begin to gain some followers of your own.
- Posting – When you have followers to see your photos, it’s likely time to create your first post. Take a photo in the app, or select from the camera roll on your phone. You can choose a filter, add a caption, and even tag other followers who are in the photo with you. When these are done, post your photo for all your followers to see – and don’t be surprised if you get a few “likes” and comments on it too.
By following these steps, you’ll be well on your way to becoming an Instagram pro. As with all new technology, remember to be patient with it. While it may seem confusing at first, you’ll have the process down in no time!
