Tip #breakingnews on Instagram: The iPhone photo-sharing app Instagram now has 15 million users, and it’s on track to surpass Foursquare as the biggest mobile-only social network. And naturally, Breaking News (@breakingnews) is on Instagram, too (well, we started earlier this year but stopped posting for bit. Now we’re back!)
For those of you who have Instagram (an Android app is coming soon), you know that hashtags are key to discovering and sharing great photos. We’re always searching #breakingnews to discover new stories as they break, and we’d love your help on Instagram. If you see a news photo, please add a #breakingnews tag in the comments and we’ll repost the best (with credit of course) on our Instagram account. We may link some of them on BreakingNews.com, our mobile apps, @breakingnews on Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr, too.
By the way, Instagr.am photos with #breakingnews hashtags automatically appear in our “news wires” tab on BreakingNews.com, where anyone can click “submit” to tip our editors. Happy hashtagging!
