To get started on Instagram, all that is needed is an Internet connection, the ability to create a unique username and access to the Instagram app. Users can create Instagram accounts from their computers, smartphones or other Internet-capable devices.
An Instagram account is a great way to build a brand for businesses or for personal users to share pictures with friends and family. The steps to creating an Instagram account are simple and only take a few minutes to complete.
- Sign up and create a username
- Create a profile
- Link to other social media platforms
- Start sharing
Go to the Instagram app either through the website or through the smartphone store. Sign up and create a unique username. If creating a username for a business or brand, ensure it clearly represents the brand.
Once the account is created, the profile will need to be filled in with a biography, a photo or even a link to a website if desired.
Link the account to social media platform accounts such as Facebook or Twitter through the share settings option in the account settings. Use the Find Friends tool to make it easy for friends on existing social media accounts to find the new Instagram account.
With the new account set up, all that is left to do is start sharing photos.
