Instagram etiquette

I have thought about writing a blog post based on Instagram etiquette for years now. After Alex and I decided to start our Instagram consulting sessions, I thought now would be a good time. While we were developing the curriculum, I explained how there could be an entire class based on etiquette alone. I guess I resisted writing about it because it could sound a little ridiculous, but whether we like it or not, technology is progressing faster and faster and social media is more common and a part of most of our every day lives. Rather than criticize the direction things are moving, I prefer to embrace it and make the most of it. With all that said, none of the big social media platforms really come with a set of rules or instructions other than the Terms of Service page that no one ever reads. These just explain why some of what should be the most innocent hashtags should never actually be clicked.
