Are Images More Important Than Text Content in Social Media?

The first time I tried Instagram, I must have spent an hour going through all the different ways one can touch up pictures. I sampled a photo against each of the available filters, with and without frames, and tested how I could share my posts through other social channels. It amazed me, too, how quickly I gained followers from a short period of time, and lastly, the social websites strategist in me wondered how I could utilize this neat tool for clients. 

As I continue my work with instagram, too, I spot the shift in reach on business pages. Where a text-only update may result in a particular number of individuals reached (this really is without instagram to improve posts engagement meaning getting more likes and followers), the viewers grow once you post a photo, and potential growth occurs people feel that photo will probably be worth sharing. On my personal news feed, not only a day goes by where I don't see one or more friends sharing something George Takei has posted on his page. With all-around three million fans on instagram, Takei uses his social media marketing savvy to some extent for promotion and activism, but often his daily schedule involves sharing a humorous graphic. As I scroll around the screen, many are actually shared tens of thousands of times. Takei isn't just one doing this on instagram, either. Oreo enjoyed an extended campaign of tongue in cheek photos using cookies to commemorate historical events and achievements. Despite an Internet flare-up involving a cookie with rainbow filling to look at GLBT pride, Oreo likely received an amazing ROI 

A fishing app which is for iPhone and iPad users, (sorry androids... according to their internet site, yours is on its way) this inexpensive app puts 122,000 lakes over the US close at hand. As the nugget of advice goes, "days fishing are not deducted from one's life"... this app may help you to achieve immortality! (once again... sorry Android users, but they're gonna die!) 

The one thing that might limit Instagram use throughout the sporting spectacle is the fact that ticket holders are being deterred from sharing any photos or videos some may take as you're watching Olympic events. Under the 'conditions for ticketholders,' these are only able to use their photos for individual use - so that means no sharing through buybettersocial.com or any other social networking platform. 

Instagram users, like Twitter users, may often tag the photos they upload. One idea to promote your organization would involve contests where users can tag a themed photo according to your contest rules. Not only perhaps, you have branded yourself on the network. However, you present the chance to go viral as followers of entrants detect the tag and the feed.
