We live in a digital era better known as the age of awareness. In this contemporary world, social media and its platforms like Instagram play a significant role in deciding where we travel, what we eat and how we carry the latest fashion trends. Over the years Instagram has evolved into more than just an application for sharing photos of our friends and family. The feeds today look more artistic with a flair for fashion, art, nature or whatever suits the interest. It is equivalent to a personal portfolio along with the business aspect of influencer marketing and advertising or showcasing one’s talent.
