If you want to become popular in the social media space, you must ensure you profiles have many likes and comments. This is true with Instagram. Every Instagram user wishes to see many comments flowing immediately they post a photo or a video. Comments are a way of engaging your followers to ensure your content is see out there by your followers and those that are yet to follow your Instagram account.
Many brands and marketers have opted to use Instagram as their marketing channel. As a result, Instagram has grown its popularity to about 800 million active users per month and about 500 million users per day. This has seen Instagram to become as big as other social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter. The good thing about Instagram is that it has been designed in such a way that it has the ability to provide working instant comments.
Another amazing thing about Instagram is that its newsfeed is not sorted chronologically. This means your posts will appear at the top of the newsfeeds if only it has more comments and likes. The more engagements your posts receive when people comment, the higher the chances for it to appear higher in the newsfeed. If people comment more on your posts, it shows that your social media strategy is effective.
