Go from InstaSHAM to InstaDAMN.
<h1>Let's face it: Instagram is a game; cutthroat and at times agonizing. Garnering likes and followers is no easy task unless you're a Kardashian (or have dated one).</h1>
But your social media luck is about to change, because I have a social media whiz to help step up your Instagram game.
<h1>Who have I enlisted to "achieve Instagram fire," in her own words? My teenage sister, Grace.</h1> <a href="//instagram.com/p/o4PncOhR9H/embed/">//instagram.com/p/o4PncOhR9H/embed/</a> Let's face it: Teenagers are tastemakers. My sister routinely breaks 150 likes on Instagram, no sweat, because she just GETS it. Thankfully she was able to take time out of her busy schedule and break down the science of Instagram for us "old" folk. Here's what to do and, more important, what not to do on the image-sharing app.
<h1>Timing is EVERYTHING.</h1>
Rule No. 1 of Instagram: You can't post photos willy-nilly. Think of it like sneaking grapes at the grocery store when a clerk isn't watching: TIMING IS EVERYTHING.
So when DO you actually post? Sunday evening is “prime time” for likes, according to my sister, because “everyone is bored and not doing homework.” I guess that applies to the real world too!
When not to post? Mornings! The likes are “weird and sporadic.”
