If you’re a photographer (creator) on Instagram, then your likelihood of having your content shared just went up. Curators today are being treated to Buffer’s new integration with Instagram. Sort of like Hootsuite, it will allow you to take posts that you’ve been tagged in, copy the URL, set the app up to remind you to share a post, and then manually share the post in some way or another. It isn’t as automated as one would like and it’s quite interesting that Instagram doesn’t natively allow for sharing, but it’s a brand new feature that will make the life of social media content developers and curators a heck of a lot simpler too.
This also makes life easier for photographers as lots of them try to tag loads of big accounts in an attempt to get their work shared on Instagram. The likelihood goes up because the overall workflow is a bit easier, as Instagram turns more and more into an overall cesspool of stuff that everyone and their mother continuously share at will.
Buffer is available for iOS and Android. We use Buffer on Twitter for more effective traffic and content sharing strategies overall. Usually it works out pretty well.
