Top Instagram updates, that would tweak your IG strategy 

Instagram is making us by waves by announcing newer features every week. This week it launched some updates that , as I say, made my eyes pop out. I also heard the live video of GaryVee  on Instagram and some of his words made me re-think my social strategy . I am going to tweak it a bit for myself and my clients this week.  Gary says am not transnational (with an impact) and what if Instagram announces tomorrow that the organic reach has been shunned to 1%, what do you do. For all those who walked off from snapchat, you should have remained there.
However, Instagram is lurking at our doors, making us greedily hang on to it more and more with newer updates. Do you agree?
Some of the Instagram updates made in the month of May 2017 are:
  1. Now you can use Hashtags in IG Story
  2. Location & Hashtags stories are now discoverable on IG Explore.
  3. You can now add link to your IG story if your IG account has a follower count of 10K and above.
  4. You can hold onto a colour to use custom colour in your IG story
  5. Rewind & Face Filters are new in Instagram story

SO now along with boomerang these new tools are awesome to make your stories addictive to your viewers.

Peeps, its getting super easy to get discovered in Explore, if you are using Locations & Hashtags in IG stories aptly.

Its time to tap on and create more effective & cohesive stories. What do you think? And if you are on it, game is yours! More the features, more is the adaptability that is required and social media is getting so liquid ,that it has become mainstream , for those who feel you can manage your Social brand presence yourself, you really need to be on the tip of your toes, (or even to nails, phew) . As a social media manager, my every has a learning schedule. Sunday is lined up with Twitter chats, listening to VIP Group love talks, reading my books on content marketing, social media, blogging, etc. Besides, tons articles reading, keeping myself updated with ad hoc updates that drop like bombs. And its so much fun , besides the regular community, social media & content management.
