If you're like me then Twitter can be a huge time suck, whether you're actually using it productively or you're reading pointless dribble. But let's face it, is anyone really on Twitter anymore just to read other people's tweets or even talk? Hardly. The majority of people on Twitter now are business owners simply playing the social media game and posting crap about their product or they're some kind of content producer, a marketer or blogger, posting about their latest blog. Does anyone get much reach from Twitter anymore? I'm not talking about just retweets and hearts that the slightly more clever Tweeters use so that they're not just spouting on about their own stuff, I'm talking about real engagement.

It's simply not fun for those of us with an actual purpose besides connecting with our friends. Social media has become a chore and I want that chore no more! In this series I'll be talking about how to make different social media platforms fun again and I'm starting with Instagram because I think it's the easiest.
How to make Instagram fun againInstagram has always been one of the funnest social media platforms.

There are of course a few pitfalls with Instagram, like any social network but in comparison I think it's actually one of the best.

Social media can seriously suck if you're a blogger or content producer. Why? Because it's not fun anymore.
Why social media sucks
When you're a blogger or content producer of any kind, social media can really suck. It's work and it's seriously unfun. It's supposed to be fun right? I think it was at one point, before it became a chore. I assume it's fun for the rest of humanity that don't spend their time creating content and curating on social media. Was it ever fun? I'm going to say yes, otherwise why would everyone use it so much?
