I selected this article from Curatti written by Jenn Herman because it provides insights into how to better grow your Instagram community with the right followers.


It's important to attract the right followers for your target market to authentically grow your reach on Instagram.


How to Have a Quality Following on Instagram


It's tempting to look more at the number of followers rather than how they are actually benefitting your brand. I agree that you can improve your mobile strategy by attracting the right people.


Herman explains how to best grow your profile with the right connections.


Here's what caught my attention:


  • Use specific hashtags for events and conferences in your niche. Go through these posts and 'like' them throughout the day.


  • Check out the competition and influencers to see who they are following. If the accounts relate to your business then follow these and engage on their posts.


  • Ask your community to tag their friends in your posts. Don't do this all of the time, but rather mix it into your mobile marketing strategy.

Social Media Discovery: 5 Hurdles to Information Consumption

Social Media Discovery: 5 Hurdles to Information Consumption | Inspiring Social Media |

This excellent article was written by Romain Goday for Darwin Ecosystems. 


After presenting some facts showing the immense and burgeoning amount of data available on the web, Romain goes into a little detail on the types of tools that use the Social Graph to filter content:


Social Networks Search Engines Discovery Engines


He then details 5 limitations to Social Media Discovery, opeing this section of the article:


**It is increasingly easier to publish information and increasingly difficult to consume it.


What most caught my attention:


**Excessive attention to what is being said within the user’s circle of trust limits the scope of the information consumption.


**The user’s perspective is not challenged, instead it is reinforced


**Users generally follow people that they respect at a personal level.


**It is understandable that they don’t have the desire to follow people that they dislike or that have the opposite view


**Lists, Circles and Subscriptions aren’t reducing the noise


**Following more people still equals a broader information scope and even more noise.


I agree wholeheartedly that it is our inclination to seek validation.  We must choose our sources and our curators very carefully to avoid seeing only what we are hoping to find.  But choose, we must!  The volume is just too great for anyone to do otherwise for a sustainable period of time.


If you're not careful you can escape the Google filter bubble to one of your own making. To avoid this, you may have to follow people who's views you may not agree with but at least you'll get the broader picture.
