Understanding this concept will make it easy for one to identify which Social media platforms will be best for 2019. Here is what we think:
Instagram is a social media platform that allows you to share as many pictures as you want. Analysis shows that Instagram has more female users than male and this can be traced to the fact that it is uniquely meant for picture uploads which is what females enjoy doing. If you are in an industry that majorly uses images for marketing (like shoes and clothes), Instagram is one channel you cannot ignore.
