THE 7 #RULES OF INSTAGRAM

You’ll need to swear by th­ese cy­ber ‘laws’ for success!

Cosmopolitan (India) - - UPFRONT -

Thou shalt not steal oth­ers’ pic­tures and shalt not over-use fil­ters (of all kinds).

Us­ing a bunch of spe­cial ef­fects doesn’t make a photo yours, so don’t cheat. Also ev­ery­thing doesn’t need to be over-edited— nat­u­ral works really well too! This is one of the big­gest and most im­por­tant rules—if you’re re­duced to beg­ging for likes, com­ments, and fol­low-backs, you’ll come across as des­per­ate, and mostly, un­cool. That’s a big no-no. You don’t have to #tag ev­ery­thing in the cap­tions of your pic­tures. It’s okay to write full sen­tences with­out #mak­ing #ev­ery #word #a #tag #search. Gets kinda an­noy­ing doesn’t it? Es­pe­cially for the peo­ple who are check­ing your up­dates reg­u­larly.

Thou shalt not let thy dig­nity go by ask­ing for fol­low­ers. Thou shalt limit the use of the #tag to thrice in a pic­ture.
