Since when did Instagram become the new google?
I am increasingly aware of the growth, popularity and general affability of the social media channel.
While having coffee with a good friend the other day, our chat turned to the rise of collagen in drinks and cosmetics. No sooner had we started on this conversation, my friend mentioned a brand and took to her Instagram to search for said brand; the rest of our two hour meet was punctuated by the very same behaviour.
I can’t tell you how often I see people turning to their Instagram as a point of reference and actually with its aesthetically pleasing format, easy to use app and appeal to everybody and everything from Ozzy Osbourne to Clinique, I have to say, I’m in! Are you?
