This time, however, it is not Kendall Jenner who is the topless one its actually her and Kylie Jenners companions in a new photo on the latters Instagram page. In the pic, Kylie and Kendall can be seen being lifted up by five shirtless models, all of whom have abs and pectoral muscles sharp enough that I would be willing to gamble thats why they cant wear clothes.

However, sharing videos created by fans of your brand can go a long way towards creating a community on the platform. To show both good form and a healthy respect for the copyright of others, ask permission from and give credit to the originator of any images you want to regram. There are even apps for that , because of course there are. Another key tool are hashtags: successful brands use them, and use them effectively. Some of the more obvious tips for best practices include: Keep your hashtags focused. The Instagram blog uses the example of #van versus #vwvan.

Cluttering up your post with a dozen tags suggests a lack of direction. Edit your tags down to the most relevant. Watch out for language fails.
