Instagram Fresh

An emerging social media outlet on the hip-hop scene is Instagram. It's an app exclusively for iPhone users that allows you to upload pictures and add filters, and it also provides you with the option to post your pictures on Twitter and/or Facebook simultaneously. You can follow other people, like their pictures and comment on their pictures. Many hip-hop artists have created their own Instagram accounts and already have thousands of followers. Even the fans who don't have Instagram accounts can see most of their favorite artist's Instagram pictures as Twitpics.

Fans love the personal aspect of the app. They can view their favorite artists post pictures of themselves, their friends, what they're doing, etc. all in real time. It's a fun, hip, creative and funky app that allows artists to express themselves freely in a way that fans enjoy viewing and following. It's also a nice social tool that easily links to other social platforms, such as Facebook and Twitter, allowing a wider reach and versatility to users. I predict Instagram to continue growing in popularity and users. I know I personally get excited every time I find a new favorite artist of mine on Instagram.
