Will Instagram Shopping Take Off?

Will Instagram Shopping Take Off?

Every social media site has its place. Facebook is mainly for the older crowd, connecting old friends and family, and promoting businesses and events. Twitter is for sharing short musings and news headlines. LinkedIn is for business networking. And Instagram is for brand building, sharing live stories, photos, and an endless number of selfies.
