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.
Instagram was founded by Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger in 2010, when social media was heading a new direction. Facebook started the social bandwagon, followed by Twitter. What do people like sharing the most? It's no surprise that people like sharing pictures and Instagram was born.
We have all been there on Instagram. Posting a photo that got very little likes... but why? Maybe you just picked the wrong filter or had bad lighting in your latest selfie on Instagram. Did you know that some of the superficial stuff can make all the difference on Instagram?
What photos get the most likes and comment on Instagram? This infographic created by Hubspot studied 1.5 million photos from 538, 270 users...
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?
