Instagram

Instagram is a social networking site that allows users to share photos and videos. Users can change the filter of the photo to change the look. Your photos can be shared on Facebook, Twitter, and more. For now, using a mobile device or tablet is the only way to post photos using Instagram.

Why Instagram? Instagram is a great way to share visuals of Cazenovia College or share images of your own life “through” the camera lens. Instagram is great for interaction, allowing followers to "heart" a photo or comment.

How do I use Instagram? Download the app on your iOS or Android smartphone. Browse www.instagram.com to see your photos and those of the people you follow and make comments.

You have the option to link Facebook and Twitter to your Instagram accounts. Linking these accounts makes it easier to find your friends on Instagram.

The heart option is how you “like” a photo. If a picture gets more than 10 likes, it will start counting in a number instead of showing the individual followers.

What is Instagram Direct? Instagram Direct is the “box” symbol at the top right corner of the app. This feature is used to share a photo with one follower or multiple, but cannot be seen by anyone else. (This is very similar to Facebook messaging.)

What is the Explore Tab? The explore feature allows users to search for a specific user or hashtag. The explore feature will also bring up “popular” photos that you may have in common with your follower’s friends.

Comment button This button allows users to comment on photos.

To tag someone, click on tag photo and type in the name/s of the person/s you are tagging.

If you would like to mention someone, press "@" and include their name.

*If your account is private and you use a certain hashtag in your post, it will not be found. If you would like to participate in one of the College’s contests, please use the Instagram Direct option to send us your photo.
