Instagram is your life through pictures and videos, collated, stored and shared online. Gone are the days of having a physical album. There is no need to print, post or email pictures anymore. So how can you possibly choose a few memories to potentially share with 150 million active users, when everything in your life seems totally amazing and worth posting?

Not everything in your life is worth posting, nor is it necessary to post the same thing from six different angles.
Knowing how to improve your posts on your instagram profile can increase your followers, likes and comments; build your confidence and allow you to have fun while taking pictures.

Everybody loves a cute selfie. Take those great selfies by playing dress up and looking pretty. Or take those shameless selfies with quirky expressions. You could even be creative and take a group selfie like Ellen.
