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

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 …
