INSTAGRAM for beginners
Are you a first time user? No worries, we have Mr Genie to help us out. He says that if your gallery is overflowing with pictures or if you want people to know what you reflect, Instagram is all that you need. It is an application to share your photo, videos or little moments of the everyday lives with your friends, family or your admirers.
3 Reasons Why Instagram is so Popular.
You can access your Instagram account by signing in by using Chrome or an application. Just create an account and get started! And the good news is, it is absolutely FREE!
It’s so safe!
I have a friend. Her name is Miss Popular. I met her on Instagram! I know you caught me. Yes, you’re right. She is my girlfriend! Maybe that’s the reason why I am so obsessed with it. And now I make my living from it!
Instagram has multiple features. We have so many things on the plate that it is really difficult to choose “The Best.” You have filters, stores, Geo-tagging, hashtags, Instagram direct and much more!
Finally welcome face to face!
We had just finished our 12th board exams and we decided to party! So we arranged a night out at a friend’s house. We had everything in place, chips, juice, laptop and a pen-drive too! I know what you are thinking of. Dirty minds! We decided to watch a horror movie. The movie was testing our patience, so we paused it and started posting selfies on Instagram. I was new to Instagram then, but found it fun! That’s how it all started!
Sugar and Spice
I confronted many experiences as I was growing on Instagram. A coin has two sides. Similarly, I experienced the good as well as the bad side of it. I made new friends, patched up with ex-friends and lost some too!
Upgrades– The Next Level
We humans are interesting animals with curious brains. We need change. We need spice. We need surprises.
Instagramers are kept dynamic and in action by giving them a chance to explore the beauty of the application by consistently giving them updated versions. These are some features recently added.
Insta Direct- Cool to fool
The Direct in Instagram allows you to manage the visibility of your photo or video by privately sharing it with maximum 15 followers. You can also share them on other social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter etc.
You can also share disappearing photos to a group or an individual. The photo or the video disappears once the person has seen it, considering that he/she is your follower.
Insta Story- Each Day is a Miracle
Pictures can express a lot more than mere words do. Therefore, you should capture each moment of your precious life. The story that you post disappears after 24 hours and you can exactly see the number of views and the names of the visitors too.
Hashtags are tags where no special characters or space is allowed. One can use maximum 30 hashtags in his/her post. When you tag with a hashtag you can access the page where similar pictures or videos are uploaded.
Filters–Life is colorful
Filters can do wonders if you use them correctly or a blunder if not. Let’s be honest, we don’t have pro editing skills. Therefore, use filters that appeal to your eyes and not just for the sake of using. Normal, Clarendon, Juno, lark, Valencia are a handful of them available.
Geo-tagging-The World is Small
You can add location; add temperature and time to your stories along with stickers and emojis. This makes the post more attractive resulting in more likes and followers.
