August 17: Instagram for Politics
Instagram is a powerful -- and fun -- tool to use for online communications, with more than 500 million users worldwide logging in every day. The free mobile application, owned by Facebook, can be daunting for new users, with an array of options and seemingly endless settings.
In this fun, hands-on training, you will learn how to navigate Instagram confidently and use it to accomplish your communications goals. This one-hour deep dive will focus on:
- how political figures, journalists, and media organizations use Instagram;
- what Instagram's "extra" apps (Hyperlapse, Layout, and Boomerang) do and when you want to use them; and
- how to use Instagram Stories, one of the most popular (but daunting!) features on the app.
You will leave this training with tactics and strategies to build an authentic community and increase your followers on Instagram.
The training ends at 1pm Eastern / Washington D.C. time.
