Everyone can benefit from the mass appeal of Facebook and Twitter. There are so many people on these sites that you can

Instagram, the inauguration and growing your business

While those of us in Baltimore are still celebrating last night’s Ravens win, the rest of the country is getting watching the inauguration and enjoying MLK Day. According to CNN, this will be the biggest event in the history of Instagram. Never before have so many people been able to use their cell phones to send messages out to the while world.

Instagram chief bends to pressure

The people have spoken. After the deluge of people bombarding instagram over their recently announced policies to take ownership of all photos beginning Janaury 2013, they have scrapped the idea. Instagram CEO, Kevin Systrom wrote, “The concerns we heard about from you the most focused on advertising, and what our changes might mean for you and your photos.” While claiming that people misunderstood his intentions, Systrom continued, “Because of the

It seems that today, sharing drawings, photos and videos is becoming just as important as sharing the written

Instagram for fun and profit
