Good look at Instagram tools Statigr.am, Postso, Repost, Justunfollow and Twtrland.

Angelina's curator insight, July 22, 8:24 AM

Ian Cleary has noticed the growing trend of Instagram users and proposed 5 Instagram tools that help users to better manage their marketing. 

(1) Statigr.am allows Instagram users to manage their account more effectively through providing several functions: view your own or friends' feeds (interact with multiple images in a short amount of time), view statistics of one's account, snapshots of popular photos, manage and promote account to new users and to join contests to gain more recognition 

(2) Repost is a mobile app that allow users to browse through content from your feeds and repost the content to attract attention in the community. This app works best if your account intends to do a collaboration with other users (people will know who is the original creator of the content as attribution of the user is displayed by default)

(3) Postso allows users to share multiple images instantly on social media, which saves time for users to post images one by one. Users can schedule their images to be posted at a specific timing.

(4) Justunfollow allows users to manage their followers on Instagram, which helps them to build their communities and unfollow anyone that are spamming them

(5) Twtrland allows users to analyze their own and competitors' accounts on social media. This helps users to build their communities and know the methods of gaining more attention on Instagram through viewing competitors' networks, interests and photos posted. 

 

With these tools, Instagram will continue to grow in the future and people will have multiple ways to gain recognition and popularity online.
