In “Here Comes Everybody,” Clay Shirky discusses the structure of social networks, and how our world really isn’t as small as we think it is. I related to the example of meeting someone on an airplane that you find out you have a mutual connection with, as this just happened to me not long ago when a fellow passenger and I realized we would be attending the same wedding the next day. These connections made in person can be easy to do.. but what about using multimedia tools?
Connecting via social media and multimedia tools is truly an art form, and it is not always an easy one. Using the multimedia platform Instagram to promote health can be a fantastic way to connect with others, get your name out there, share your knowledge, and even build a brand for yourself.
In the video below, avid Instagram user Ravleen Grewal discusses her health, nutrition and fitness Instagram page leengirlfit. She gives insight into the motivation behind the page, building her own reputation and brand using this multimedia platform, connecting with users and her reach on Instagram, and also challenges behind the page.
