Thanks Dialus. I think it helps to come back to the big picture sometimes to put perspective on your social media marketing efforts. Thanks for your comment.
I was impressed to see how big Instagram was compared to Pinterest. I guess I’ve been focused so much on using Social Networks to sell products, and seeing Pinterest pop in discussion so often that I naturally started to assume their network was closer to Instagram’s 100 million.
Still, I think Instagram is still an open field for marketing and that’s what we’re building http://nitrogr.am: the social engagement platform for professionals on Instagram.
Yes Thibaut and that should grow if Facebook drives more traffic there. I’ll be watching your platform and good luck with it!
