Recently Instagram announced their new feature, allowing you to go live! The photo sharing social media app follows in the footsteps of parent company, Facebook, where you can also appear live to your friends and followers.

Going live on Instagram is a great way to update your following, not to mention your customers/clients in the process. It provides a fun way for Business Owners to share stories or news about a product and/or service – Instagram can be your one-stop shop!

Although, unlike live video on Facebook, you can never go back and watch live video on Insta Stories – Instagram only shows you what’s happening live right now, this gives the app a better surface for good live video. It is also rolling out an Explore page of the best Instagram Live videos happening at any given time.

Maybe it’s time for your business to explore the industry and Tap ‘Start Live Video!’ You’ll be surprised while watching all the views, likes and comments that come in thick and fast from new and existing customers.

The good thing about Live video is unedited and stays in the moment, it’s the way many people on Instagram want to share in modern social media activity. This is one of the reasons why so many people use the app on a daily basis!
