Are you thinking about putting your business on Instagram? Are you looking for content ideas for this increasingly popular mobile social platform? Read further to discover how you can use Instagram to give your business extra visibility and better engage with the Instagram community.


What Is Instagram?
Instagram is a free mobile photo-sharing app with 80 million users and counting. It has seen many changes lately.


Instagram was acquired by Facebook in April 2012, launched a redesign on iOS that includes a new “Explore” tab and is rumored to be developing a web presence (so that users can see photos online, not just on the mobile app).


Social media management platform HootSuite also recently announced the addition of Instagram to its app directory. This gives HootSuite users access to almost all of Instagram’s features, which include searching, viewing and liking content, adding comments and sharing photos to other social platforms.


Clearly, Instagram is an up-and-coming photo-focused social platform not to be ignored. So what can your brand do with it?


Here are 10 creative ways your business can use Instagram.

McDonald's, Lululemon Among America's Most Hated Companies: 24/7 Wall Street

McDonald's, Lululemon Among America's Most Hated Companies: 24/7 Wall Street | Effective Communication | Scoop.it

One would imagine you'd have to be pretty despicable to land on a "Most Hated" list, or just make some serious PR gaffes. The brands on 24/7 Wall Street's 10 Most Hated Companies in Americalist did a little bit of both, and this year's winner—McDonald's—may surprise some, but not all. 


In a year that has seen the Golden Arches be the face of the low-wage fight, falling fast-food salesand poor customer service, it isn't really shocking to see one of America's—and the world's—most prolific brands at the top of the list. 


Joining McDonald's in this unfortunate collection is unsurprisingly Abercrombie & Fitch, Electronic Arts, Sears Holdings, DISH Network, Walmart, JPMorgan Chase, Lululemon, BlackBerry, and JCPenney. 


Three of the metrics used to make up the list include customer service, stock performance, and employee satisfaction. The latter is part of what did BlackBerry in, as the company has had to dump a third of its workforce as it continues to bleed insane amounts of cash.

Le classement des 10 marques les + détestées en 2013 recèle quelques surprises, vu d'Europe...

Abercrombie&Fitch, BlackBerry sont certes les moins étonnantes, mais McDonald, Electronic Arts , Sears Holdings , DISH Network , Walmart, JPMorgan Chase , Lululemon, JCPenney  ?

Plusieurs d'entre elles se sont fait épingler pour leurs bas salaires en 2013, leur faible niveau de service ou leur baisse des ventes l'année passée. McDonald's a cumulé les 3 bévues aux Etats-Unis en tout cas...
