What is Instagram?

Since Instagram first hit the app store in 2010 as a photo sharing platform, it’s evolved into a multimedia hub, now part of the Facebook / Meta family. Stories, reels, ads, live streams – it’s truly an app of all trades. Businesses have a unique opportunity to promote themselves via ads or influencer collaborations, with the added ability to be organically tagged in users’ posts and stories.

 

Who should be listed on Instagram?

Like all major social networks, Instagram is a must for local businesses that want to be celebrated and spotlighted. Create a page to share product launches, updates, news, events, and candid content with fans across your community (and the world).
