More and more businesses are using Instagram to promote their product and service on social media. Do you know what Instagram is? Instagram is an online mobile application that is used for sharing photos and videos.

Instagram is following in the footsteps of Facebook and Twitter and has fast become a very popular social media tool. This social media app was originally developed so that people could apply different filters to photographs that they had taken on their mobile phones and would allow them to easily upload and share these photos with friends (or account followers) using the said application.

However more recently, video was introduced to Instagram. Videos can now be uploaded, but Instagram video clips are limited to between 3 to 15 seconds long. Due to its visual nature, Instagram is popular. Lots of businesses, especially the product based ones, have achieved success using Instagram. This is because the application allows for photos to be posted and shared of people either wearing or using these products.

If you are interested in getting onto Instagram, it is helpful to spend some time up front doing your Hashtag research. Hashtags are tags that you can add in a caption of a photo that you upload.
