So­cial me­dia has come a long way over the past decade. Your par­ents are prob­a­bly tag­ging their friends on Face­book and Grandma can even hold a con­ver­sa­tion about what’s hap­pen­ing on “The Gram.” But how can you be sure you are con­nect­ing with your friends “the right way?” We have 5 tips and trends to fol­low while post­ing those flaw­less self­ies! 1. Ac­count Pri­vacy Re­mem­ber what hap­pened to Katy Perry “Last Fri­day Night?” Don’t let it hap­pen to you! Be sure that your ac­count set­tings are turned to pri­vate, mak­ing it manda­tory for po­ten­tial fol­low­ers to re­quest you. Take a look at fol­lower’s pages, other fol­low­ers and photos to be sure that you know the per­son be­fore hit­ting Ac­cept. 2. Sooo Artsy Phone cam­eras are just as good as the pro­fes­sion­als now. Take ad­van­tage! Use so­cial me­dia to post cool an­gles and col­or­ful shots. So­cial me­dia is a great way to build a small port­fo­lio of cool photos you have taken. Th­ese can be used for photo con­tests, school projects or just con­ver­sa­tion starters with friends! 3. Post Pos­i­tiv­ity So­cial me­dia is for post­ing of course! You should have fun shar­ing pics of cool things you are do­ing with your friends, fam­ily, or even on your own! Be­fore post­ing, ask your­self if your old­est fam­ily mem­ber would be proud of your post. If not, take a mo­ment to re­con­sider! If the an­swer is yes, than snap, post, and tweet away! Just be sure the post is a true re­flec­tion of your best self! 4. A Pic­ture is Worth 1,000 Words But your cap­tion brings its worth down to just 10. Cap­tions say a lot about a photo and can make a cool, fun one into the op­po­site. Be sure your words are just as great as the photos you are tak­ing. In­spi­ra­tional quotes, nice song lyrics or a sim­ple de­scrip­tion of the pic­ture are good prac­tices when la­bel­ing your posts. 5. Build A Re­sume Your In­sta­gram bio is your new hand­shake. Use your so­cial me­dia pro­file to shine! Won an award at a school? Hit a home run at base­ball? Baked an awe­some cake? Show it off! Now- a- days, teachers, guid­ance coun­selors, high school and col­lege ad­mis­sions co­or­di­na­tors, and more are look­ing at your so­cial me­dia pro­files be­fore they meet you in per­son. Show them that you rock! Your so­cial me­dia chan­nel can serve as your best re­sume, if you post the right photos!
