    Hi Mohit,
    Great information. I’ve read that Instagram is now very important to use but I haven’t that much. I don’t use my phone much, except for texting and of course phone calls. Haven’t quite got the hang of the difference between the two in terms of a smooth sharing of photos from my blog, etc.

    Thanks for sharing your knowledge.
