It has been a while since Facebook purchased Instagram, and both platforms are for sure the most popular social media platforms you will find in the world today. Apart from being a medium where people meet and make friends, most brands and businesses are using it as a means to reach potential customers who will buy their products and/or services.

I am sure you are already familiar with these features.
