Share the Pretty Pictures

It's the of-the-moment social networking site for all the kids. Or, at least it was 5 minutes ago. Hard to keep up with the kids.

Instagram is a photo-sharing phone app. It's kind of like Twitter, but for pictures. You snap a shot from your phone, add on a filter, and put it out there for your followers. You can tag, hashtag, comment on, and like photos. Your followers can do the same with the photos you've shared.

It seems like at the beginning I heard people shared pictures of their food. Now, you can find people sharing all sorts of lovely pictures. 

For Etsy shops, it's a great way to show off our wares as well as our process. Etsy just did a blog post on this very topic...

Are you on Instagram? (Let us know so we can follow you.) Do you have any tips to share?
