Today brands need to tell stories, and what’s any good story without pictures? Instagram users are more engaged shoppers!
Instagram is a mobile photo application
Users can apply photo filters and share them on Twitter, Facebook and other social media platforms.
Purchased by Facebook in April of 2012.
93% of prestige brands are on Instagram.

Hashtags & Embeds
Hashtags - see what any of the 150 million active monthly users on Instagram are saying about you or your products and services.
Multiple hashtags work!
Track Maven released data showing that interactions by hashtag increased with the number of hashtags used. 1 = 29 avg interactions/1,000 followers. 11 = 77
Web Embeds - the embedding tool allowed bloggers to share their favorite Instagram while giving the photographers the credit (and likes) they deserve.
-In the next couple months, you may begin seeing an occasional ad in your Instagram feed if you’re in the United States.
-Ads will look like normal Instagram photos or videos but will be prominently labeled with the word “Sponsored” at the top.
-If you see an ad you don’t like, you’ll be able to hide it and provide feedback about what didn’t feel right. Can't opt out.
