Today is my social media anniversary and I am so happy. I have been on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter for 5 years today. It doesn’t seem like 5 years have gone by but it has. When I first started out I was definitely all over the place and didn’t know what I was going or doing. I was just kinda winging it.
It may seem like everyone is already on instagram and there is no room left for you. But that’s not true. I believe that instagram will follow in the footsteps of its owner Facebook and grow to over 1 billion users. Trust me, now is the time to get on Instagram and harness its power.
There are so many social media platforms out there – Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, YouTube, Instagram, Tumblr, LinkedIn, Periscope, Blab, Google+, Pinterest…. The list goes on and on. Social media overwhelm is a real thing and you don’t want to spend all of your time posting on all these social media accounts because it’s the popular thing to do.
Terror organizations have used the internet in the past to further their cause. But no other organization has used social media so masterfully like ISIS as means to capture the world’s attention. Why is ISIS’s use of social media so powerful? Because anyone in the world can access it at any time, they have a clear picture of who their target audience is and they are employing a successful social media strategy to grow their influence worldwide.
