Remember When I Didn't Know How To Use Instagram?

Well, I still don't.
Specifically, I don't know the etiquette.
Apparently, I was supposed to comment back when all of you fabulous people leave such sweet comments. #Instagramfail. For clarification, I didn't know HOW to comment back.

I hope that you give me a pass for the past two years, since it took me a year JUST to find out that Instagram was a social media...like I had followers and didn't even know that was possible. I'm sure you are thinking, "Wow. What a blonde...", but seriously...I just thought it was a photo editor.

Initially this post was asking all of you if I was supposed to comment back and/or how to do so, and then this gem popped up on Pinterest. It answered all of my questions and more! I even bet that the avid 'Grammers will learn at least one thing from this tips list:

Are there any more tricks that we should all know about?

It's kind of like facebook and twitter, regarding tagging someone in a comment (i.e. @whatever their name in).

Sometimes I edit some pics in Pic FX, since it has lots of more options for editing. Like A LOT! Plus, there is an option to upload it into IG if you want.

I love IG! So addicting!

I didn't know it was social media for a long time either! I only used it as a photo editor and then one day I realized I was doing it all wrong. So embarrassing, haha.

I don't think I'm following you on Instagram.

I don't always comment back! Sometimes I miss comments for days. Whoops.

I'm not really concerned with followers and such, but I know relevant and easy hashtags work best. I know a lot of people use hashtags weird, but I think simple is better.

This would be from Fat Mum Slim! She's awesome with pictures and we have her to thank for the Photo A Day topics! #12 is new to me!

I love IG! I've used for the last year and half but only recently have my friends joined and with bloggers following it's really become fun! Great share girl! I had no idea I could delete comments, tucking that info away should I ever need it!

Erin Keene said...

OMG I thought I knew how to use it but I didn't know about so many of those things!!

Kenzie Smith said...

Enjoy Instagram.
Have a good rest of the week!

I dont comment to instagram comments either unless someone asks a question!

Rach @ This Italian Family said...

At least you have Instagram. My phone still isn't smart enough for that so I'm really in the archaic world. ;)

Nicole said...

Oh man...this is way too much work! I have instagram, but usually don't put that much effort into uploading a pic. LOL. Oh well, I'm ok with it!

SkyMommy said...

Some people take Instagram SO SERIOUSLY! Yes, it's a social network and I try to like and comment on pictures that I, well, actually like.

I think like any social network people get too caught up in total number of comments and likes. It's not a contest.

Just have fun with it and like and comment on what moves you, not what you feel obligated to.

Kim said...

I just signed up for instagram and love it! Thanks for sharing this! I'm going to try that airplane mode tip soon. :)

Nicole said...

Wow, I even learned a thing or two by this. Thanks for sharing!
