Instagram’s explosive growth to 150 million users makes it a real contender in the world of social networking. Rapid growth aside, I think it’s the most fun of all the social sites. In case you haven’t tried it, Instagram is an on-line photo and video sharing social network. It’s like Facebook only you tell your story in snapshots. Right from your smartphone.
The best way to learn about Instagram is to use it. I’d had an account for a while but never felt completely at home — so I joined this month’s advent calendar challenge as a fun learning exercise. To play, just post something each day that aligns with the daily theme. You can be as creative or as conventional as you like. There are no extra rules to follow and no complicated instructions.
Instagram Advent Calendar Challenge
I get some of my best blogging and graphics tips from Marianne. She runs Design Your Own (Lovely) Blog and sends out helpful tips and freebies from her Facebook page. This month, she launched an –> Instagram challenge <– that is a lot of fun.
I made all of these on my phone using PicsArt. It’s not too late to catch up if you want to join in! Or just follow our progress on Instagram by watching the hashtag #adventcal2013.
