Instagram continues to grow in popularity, becoming a powerful social media tool for communicating what we wish to share with others.
While this platform centers on photography as the main method of communication, remember to include a comment or single sentence to help followers understand your image.
Even something as iconic as the Eiffel Tower would benefit by adding a sentence explaining why you’re posting this photo NOW. Are you reminiscing? Thinking of studying abroad? There are countless photos posted of this landmark – why is yours unique?
While it’s true that some photos can speak for themselves – and sometimes should – Instagram is a social media site designed to create connections and comments, so a key phrase or insight accompanying the image can help encourage others to like the image or post a positive comment.
