Let’s take it one step at a time. Maybe you’re a person that, when you travel, you want to disconnect from everything. That’s why you have the whatsapp Vacation Mode feature. With it you can archive the chats that you don´t want them to bother you. And that is usually the relationship of contacts related to your work, for example. This way, when they text you, you won’t see their chats on the main screen or receive a notification. And so, you disconnect. Hummm, what peace and quiet!
Maybe you like to pretend and you joined the fashion of the #facay (from fake, fake, and ‘vacay’, holidays), come on, fake photos to pretend that you are in a remote destination. Bad idea as a substitute for a good trip. Aristóteles once said: “Adventure is worth it”.
Perhaps you are a person who wants to show yourself to the world, to be an example of knowledge of cultures and places or simply an “accidental traveller”. The point is that you want to tell the world where you want to go, where you are and what you like best at the moment.
Your next vacation destination can catch you from a place with more Instagram “likes”. It’s not an invention. Researchers at the University of Georgia in the USA suggest that success on social media platforms affects travel-oriented decision-making in many ways. In other words, the social response you want of a destination can be your booster to book a flight to that place.
You can activate Instagram filters like “Where will I go my next holidays?” And then you can choose or maintain your travel expectation with which to open new borders.
In any case, these are the destinations that are more balanced between the number of Instagram posts, the likes they receive and the average per post:
There is no vacation without Instagram, even less when Twiter drops on users and Facebook doesn’t seduce everybody like it used to.
So, before launching yourself into the smartphone world, plan and follow these small recommendations:
Ready? Let’s shoot:
You can also choose photo tours, joined by a professional photographer. An upward trend -since 2016, only in Spain, bookings of this type of travel have grown by 274%- to know shocking locations and expand or acquire knowledge about photography. With digital camera or instant; day or night; underwater tour or by bike… an unforgettable flash experience in hand.
And, now lets talk about hashtags. There are many generators that can help you with their suggestions, like TagsFinders. Do you know which ones were the most popular with #vacations? According to Top-Hashtags, the following: #travel #summer #beach #accomodation #traveler #world #travel #traveller #traveler #backpackers #travelagency.
Now that everything is ready, remember that conquering your followers with your holiday wanderings is important, but your vacations and your life is more important, so you don’t have to post at every step. Do it at night, from the hotel and with its Wi-Fi, and keep photos and videos to upload them back with the #latergram hashtag.
Bon voyage and let Instagram accompany you!
