Tip of the Week

A great Instagram starts with a great photo. Content is key when sharing on social media, even if your posts are image- instead of text-based. It can be fun to play with filters and captions, but the first stop in sharing a great Instagram post is taking a great photo. Here are a few guidelines:

  1. Be original. Any photo you’re sharing should be one you took – don’t ever steal a screen capture of someone else’s photo.
  2. Widen your reach. Hashtags are a great way to search for posts, but make sure they’re relevant to the content you’re sharing.
  3. Filter responsibly. Just because filters are there doesn’t mean you need to use them – sometimes the best Instagram is one with no filter at all. The #nofilter hashtag can help you show off your filterless photos.
