It’s official: Instagram has rolled out tests in the USA to hide post likes from followers. This change has already been implemented in places, such as Canada, Japan, Italy, and New Zealand. It is likely to have a large impact on brands that market through Instagram, but good news, there are a few other metrics to keep tabs on that are potentially even more valuable.
With more 1 billion monthly active users, Instagram is one the largest social media platforms on the market. As a photo and video sharing social media app, many brands believe Instagram is a place for visual distraction, not for business, right?
Instagram recently announced its newest feature for ecommerce brands: In-app Checkout. This feature allows users to buy products directly within the app without having to leave the app and visit the brand’s website.
