OK, I have a MEGA-awesome tip today, courtesy of my dear friend Dave Clayton (co-host of the “He Shoots / He Draws” podcast), and it gets around the problem some pros in the community have pointed out that if you post from 3rd party apps from your computer, Instagram’s algorithm automatically limits the exposure of your image within Instagram (in short – apparently Instagram doesn’t want folks posting from third-party apps). There is a lot of debate if this limiting actually happens or not, but there’s enough talk of it out there that it’s freaked some folks out and they’ve stopped using those third-party apps (yours truly included).
