I’ve been advocating the use of Instagram for a while now and I keep getting asked the same question: Why should we be using Instagram? Since I think I’m starting to sound like someone hit “replay” every time I answer that question, I thought I should write a post about it.
For some people and businesses, Instagram may not be the most advantageous platform. And if you only have time to manage a couple social media sites, you may not be able to justify adding another one. And that’s ok. Instagram may not be for you right now. But, I still recommend you read this post and consider the benefits of using this site. It may be something you want to join in the future.
So, here are my ten reasons for why you should be using Instagram.
It’s Not Just the Shiny New Toy
It seems like there’s always a new shiny toy on the horizon. Another platform that is hyped up to be the next big thing. Well, Instagram isn’t new anymore. Instagram launched publicly in October 2010 and has steadily grown in membership since then. This platform is tried and tested. It’s getting bigger and better and if growth is any indication, it will be around for a long time to come.
It’s Where the “Kids” Are
Of course there are plenty of platforms that the “kids” (the younger, millennial generation) frequent. But many of them use Instagram. Why? Because their parents and grandparents aren’t on there like they are on Facebook. And guess where the kids used to be? Facebook. It’s an evolution. The younger generations find the sites and make them popular. Slowly, everyone else catches on and they become mainstream for other generations as well. Instagram will likely be (it really is already starting to be) the new popular platform.
