I read an article this morning that said Instagram has over 600 million active users a month and over 400 million active users DAILY. My mouth dropped! Can we flash back for a second. Do you remember your first Instagram post? For me, that was over 4,000 photos ago and back in 2011 when frames and filters were all the rage. I’ve definitely gone back and cleaned up my profile since then so I really can’t remember my first post! #slightlybummed

This might sound funny but I can’t imagine my life without Instagram today. It’s been a mega platform that …

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of HASHTAGS and SOCIAL MEDIA. I was 15 when I created a XANGA page. (who remembers that!!!??) Shortly after that, I jumped on to Myspace (top 8 what’s up!!) and then Facebook. Fast forward to 2010 – I’m in college and suddenly obsessed with this “Instagram” app.

Remember the days when social media was just a communication tool for us to quickly connect with family and friends across the globe? Having a social media presence in 2017 is one thing, but strategically marketing your …

HOLD THE PHONE, Instagram announced a new algorithm that is taking effect in the days to come. Everyone’s talking about it so I figured I’d share my two cents! My first impression: what in the world does this algorithm change mean for me? The app has made so many updates (weekly it seems) so when I heard the news – I didn’t understand how severe this change was going to be. After I learned that the new algorithm will rearrange timeline feeds to show content “most likely” to be relevant to the user, instead of the chronological timelines that appear …
