Recently Instagram released their app to Android phones. This was huge for Instagram. In this article “Instagram’s Exploding adds a Million Android User in 12 Hours and raising $50 million” that name says it all. Just in a matter of a half a day Instagram sky rocked. Not that this app wasn’t popular already but now it’s got even more users. Read the article it gives a little bit more information on Instagram and its pretty interesting.
Instagram has been out for about 2 years now. If you don’t have or heard of Instagram I would really encourage you to take a look especially if you are thinking about doing Public Relations. Unlike any other social network Instagram uses all pictures instead of text like Twitter. To me a public relations professionals or organizations should take full advantage of Instagram. It will be a great way to connect to your audience. We all know that people react emotionally to pictures. A picture is worth a thousand words. This could be the new things for PR professionals. Pictures draw people in and get their attentions. That’s what part of PR is about; you want to grab your audience’s attention.
