The rules of social media etiquette vary depending on which social network you’re using, but the principle is the same: the more of your content that’s visible to your audience, the more likely it is that people will see it.
So don’t forget to keep your Instagrams in the mix and if you’re going to share pictures from your phone or tablet, consider using the default post settings.
But if you are going to post from your desktop, consider posting your pictures from within the app instead.
A photo you post on Instagram can be shared to all your friends, and then they can see the same photo.
That means your picture won’t get shared to everyone else on your friends list, but they can still see the photo if they want.
If you want to share from your mobile device, make sure that your mobile number is registered for people to follow you.
In this case, you can always sign up with your mobile app to have a photo automatically appear in their feed.
That way, if you decide to post on a different platform, you don’t have to worry about any extra work for your Instagram account.
