A picture is worth a thousand words, and these days, a thousand fans and comments. Instagram recently launched @Music, an official account dedicated to "capturing and sharing the world's musical moments." Each week Instagram features a selected photo that shows "a different side of artists you know and love."
Highlighting the value of storytelling, Instagram goes beyond your average 140 characters to share moments that are personal and inspiring. These snapshots give followers a glimpse inside the minds of some of their favorite artists and a taste for what drives them – all with just one photo.
Considering musicians comprise one-quarter of the most popular accounts on Instagram today, it makes sense that the photo-sharing app wants to highlight this dynamic sector of its user base, and there's a lot musicians can learn from the account, the featured artists, and the stories being shared.
