If you are a first user on Instagram, you will need to have a few basics in place before being able to post anything. This is not only for Instagram but most social medial platforms come with instructions and to avoid embarrassing oneself, be sure to study and know the basics. You will also realize that however beautiful your photo is, it not a must that you will have a large number of Instagram likes at the first go. To be able to gain any likes you must be able to have people to engage with on other trending topics.
If you want to increase your Instagram likes, you cannot do it without having followers. Follow people who you know and if this is not possible, sample through available hash tags and follow trending topics of interest. There is so much on Instagram that it would be impossible to say that you cannot find anyone to follow. The secret is the more followers you have, the larger your likes will be. Don’t just sit there and wait for likes to come in.
