What kind of posts are Hong Kongers posting on Instagram? One kind would be pictures of food.
Before digging into their meals, it is now part of popular culture for Hong Kongers to take photos of their food first.

I use Instagram too. As a user, to post on Instagram is similar to the idea of living a fulfiling life. When I eat out with my friends, everyone will be sure to take photos of all the dishes. Beyond food, we also post photos of friends, family, travel experiences etc.

On the other hand, it is popular for Hong Kongers to shop on Instagram. Cosmetics from Japan and Korea, Western branded clothing, and snacks are just some examples that are available for purchase on Instagram.

Hong Kong celebrities and artistes also use Instagram. Not only does it allow them to be closer with their fans, they are able to release new infomation about their own works to their fans directly.

How do we let others find our own posts? That is through Instagram’s hashtags. Whatever posts you upload, be sure to use hashtags to allow others to discovery your post. Using hashtags well will become promotion for your shop or yourself.

For all the reasons above, why not give Instagram a try? It is easy to upload your photo posts, and allows you to connect with your friends and other users around the world.
