Since Instagram is accessed primarily on mobile devices this can be tricky to determine since users can take a quick peek at their Instagram feed at anytime and anywhere. This makes it harder to determine viewing and interaction habits vs other social networking sites. Take into consideration these two major factors that will affect your own best time to post:
Here is a Q& A with our founder of Instafamed Paulina (@sheispaulina): Hi Paulina, how long did it take you to get almost a million Instagram followers? I joined Instagram two years ago. When I first joined I had no idea what Instagram was really about and didn't post often. After a year I really started to be active on Instagram and posted more frequently. At this point more followers started to engage with me and it was sort of a "domino effect" from there.
Did you know that you can now add multiple Instagram accounts to switch back and forth without having to log out and log back in? Instagram just announced that you can now add up to 5 Instagram accounts and quickly switch between them without having to log out and log back in. Good news is that both Android and iOS are included in this 7.15 version update that is available in the App Store and the Google Play Store.
Instagram has skyrocketed to over 300 million monthly active users in the last five years. Did you know that Instagram has a much higher engagement ratio in comparison to other social networks? In fact Instagram's ratio of interactions to followers was 140 times greater than Twitter according to Forrester research. How can you participate in the conversation on Instagram?
This afternoon, Instagram experienced some technical difficulties according to the company they said there was a bug in the system and that everyone’s account is fine. This did not stop the frenzy of 400 million plus users to go to Twitter to vent that their Instagram accounts have been hacked or compromised.
Did you notice anything different about your Instagram? New features within Instagram's Direct messaging tab were recently rolled out. With the new Instagram update, you don't need to create a new conversation every time you send a photo or video since your threads are based on people in them.
Have you noticed ads embedded in your Instagram feed? Well I got some some bad news for you Instagrammers. Expect even more ads in your feed starting September 30.
Filters... filters everywhere. But which one should you choose? With 100 million active users on Instagram uploading 40 million photos per day let's just say that's a lot of filters!
I find it ironic that people think that "social" media is like a fax machine. When in reality social media is the farthest thing from a fax machine (not to mention from different eras!) its all about being SOCIAL and starting the communication on Instagram.
Even with large amounts of followers on Instagram– this doesn’t always mean you will have an active page. Some of your followers on Instagram are following hundreds if not thousands of other accounts that could be similar to yours. What does this mean to you?
