Have you fallen in love with Instagram? I have decided to start really focusing on Instagram and have seen a huge uptick on my account. Instagram is simple, clean, pictures rule and it is easy to use. One of the things that I really love is that unlike Pinterest and Facebook, pretty much all of your followers will see your posts.
