Hundreds of years later, artists like myself are still exploring different tools to help advance our art and art businesses. Recently, I have been enjoying the popular mobile photo apps Instagram and Pixlr-o-matic. These photo-sharing apps allow users to snap mobile photos, apply digital filters and effects to it, and then share it via their social media channels including Instagram’s own site.
Last Sunday, The New York Times ran an Instagram image on its front page, a move that stirred up controversy in the photography circle. The photograph in question features New York Yankees’ third baseman Alex Rodriguez and was taken by photographer Nick Laham a year ago in a locker room bathroom. While some argue that publishing an Instagram-edited picture on the front page of an influential newspaper threatens traditional photography, others disagree with this fatalistic view. What do you think—is this refreshing or worrying? [via PetaPixels ]
This post was originally published on iStrategy Conference blog . A couple of months ago, there was on an official blog post on Instagram’s blog letting us know that they have over 80 million users on Instagram and a total of over 4 billion photos shared. The numbers have definitely increased since then and my guess is that it is definitely a social network to watch in 2013. This year we can expect more brands and businesses adapting instagram to connect with their audience and customers. If you have customers there, maybe it’s about time to jump into it and connect with them As an avid user who had shared over 450 photos to date, Instagram is addictive!
If you think that Facebook and Twitter are the only social media sites you need for your reputation management campaign, think again.
Two years ago, photo-sharing application Instagram came onto the scene and quickly took the entire Internet by storm.
I haven’t had a guest post in quite some time so I was very excited to come across Joshua Hromas’ site and blog .
The major brands are embracing Instagram with a passion. They’ve realised that engagement online with customers can start with the simple act of publishing a photo and then the sharing will happen.
It pays to be an Instagram power user these days.
Instagram has gained more than 50 million new users in the four and a half months since Facebook announced its plans to acquire the mobile photo-sharing network. Although a Federal Trade Commission investigation delayed the deal from closing sooner, the commission voted earlier this week to end its review and allow the acquisition to proceed. Facebook hasn’t announced that the deal has officially closed, but CEO Mark Zuckerberg supposedly had a celebratory sushi dinner with co-founders Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger last night.
The world's leading companies are becoming more active on Instagram, according to a new study by Simply Measured : Among the brands listed on the Interbrand Top 100, 40% now have an Instagram profile. That penetration level is far behind that of Facebook (98%) and Twitter (94%), but it is still impressive considering Instagram is much newer and mobile-only, and it has no administrative or brand management features.
I just love the way Instagram lets me take pictures with my smartphone, then simultaneously share them with my friends on Twitter and Facebook.
A Guest Post by Guy Prives . If you were not on a hot-air balloon for a journey around the world or in a Tibetan monastery on a pilgrimage yet have experienced these images on Facebook then it’s likely you’ve already been exposed to Instagram.
I have a friend who won’t stop taking photos of food whenever she eats out. It seems that no matter what restaurant ( ) the experience seems to turn into a full photo shoot. Every angle is explored and the correct lighting is required.
I’ve been bullish about Instagram for the last year and watched it grow to over 15 million users and it’s my own personal favorite social network by far.
Instagram’s traffic has steadily risen over the last six months, reaching 3.8 million last week, up from 68,800 visits for the week ending October 22, 2012.
