Newsflash: social media is time-consuming.
Each social network is designed to grab (and then keep) your attention. They're all presenting you an endless stream of rich content from friends and family (or brands and interests) you've indicated are important to you.
How do you not fall down the rabbit hole of endless scrolling? Well... I've already taught you how to save time and money using my free 15 in 2015 toolkit.
Today, I want to teach you how to save time on Instagram!
By nature, Instagram is a mobile app. While Instagram.com exists, it doesn't currently give you any more functionality than the mobile application. Enter Iconosquare.com! Not only can you see your Instagram feed in an easier to peruse grid or list view, you can easily like, comment and share—even adding emojis!
How does this save you time? Well... You're not scrolling on a phone, tablet or phablet. You can see many more images at a time! It's easy to scan through an entire day in seconds with this helpful grid view.
In addition... you can group people!
Quickly see only what your clients, family, role models or favorite Instagrammers have posted by putting these people into specific groups. Other social networks call this filtering lists (Twitter and Facebook) or circles (Google+).
Putting people into groups, lists or circles is an easy way to quickly filter your newsfeed and check in on each social platform.
Using Iconosquare.com, you can also easily search for a hashtag. See what other people are posting about #actorlife, #dance or #opera as examples!
Give Iconosquare a shot and let me know what you think!
