Instagram is one of the fastest growing social media websites with 50,000,000 unique monthly visitors. With its easy to use editing tools (which can make any picture look good) it’s clear to see why the ‘selfie’ trend has grown at rapid speed!
Although most people don’t like to admit it, the main aim of holding an Instagram account is to obtain as many followers as humanly possible and ensure your photos get lots of likes using a ridiculous list of hashtags #desperateforlikes. However, all of this said, Instagram is a genuinely great way to follow amazing photographers from around the world, keep up to date with the latest fashion trends from the outfit bloggers and best of all get a sneaky insight into the life of your favourite celebrity.
