On the heels of my Instagram post yesterday, I thought it would be nice if I was useful today instead of snappish.
Wouldn’t it be nice to have a way for people to follow you on Instagram, even if they only read your blog?
Wouldn’t it be nice to have a way to see all the photos you’ve ever taken on Instagram besides on your tiny iPhone screen?
Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to see any photo you’ve ever “hearted” (liked)? Or put them in an album? Or be able to see all your Instagram deets in one place? How about manage who you follow or respond to your Instagram photo comments?
Followgram does that all for you. It’s a management app for Instagram. I’m going to show you how to use Followgram.
How to Use Followgram
Here’s how it works.
1. Go To Followgram. In the upper right hand corner, login using your Instagram login info. Even if you haven’t logged into Followgram before, as long as you use Instagram you have an account. You just need to personalize it.
2.Do cool stuff. Once you log in, you can do all sorts of cool stuff like the things I mentioned. Followgram auto-generates HTML code for you to place a “follow me on Instagram” button on your blog, or tweet out the vanity URL for people to follow your Instagram feed.
3. View your Instagram account details. The right hand panel shows you everything about your account – who you’re following, who follows you, your Instagram profile info, and even has an RSS feed button, if people want to subscribe to your photo stream.
4. See all your photos. Looking for that picture from 2 months ago? Clicking on the “photo” button under your avatar will display your entire photo feed.
4. View photo details. You can click on individual photos to view them in a larger size and get the captions and other details about that photo.
5. Read comments, likes, and respond to comments. Beneath each individual photo, you can see the identities of everyone who interacted with your photo. You can also leave them a comment back right from Followgram, or go and check out their Instagram feed without having to get on your iPhone.
6. Use the top toolbar to search. The followgram toolbar lets you do bunch of different stuff.
7. Albums. You can create private or public albums within Followgram, and even decide to publish those albums to Facebook (Twitter to follow!).
There’s plenty more to do with Followgram – these are just the highlights. But I highly recommend this application if you are a rabid Instagram user. So much easier to do all of this on your computer than on your phone!
