Description: Instagram is one of the most popular social media platforms available today. It is mobile friendly and highly visual, making this tool an exciting way to connect with younger demographics. Instagram is also a great way to both showcase your library’s story and engage your users. This session will show you how to make the best use of your account through mobile photography tips, content ideas, and special projects that bring your online content into your library. We will also look at the best way to connect with your users who use Instagram through social listening, geotagging, and building relationships with influencers.
