Episode 7 of Instagram Insider Hacks Podcast - see show notes for a SURPRISE update #Instagrampodcast   What’s new with IGTV?   IG live to IGTV: Statistics say Instagram Live views increased by 70% from February to March! Why would you want to do this?  Social proof, re-purposing, critiquing   Can download anyone’s IGTV to your own desktop now  when moving cursor over cover photo (do this for your own - don’t be creepy)   Live - title to left, open and see options on left   Horizontal as well as portrait - see an example of my last IGTV called, 3 Steps to balancing your follower to following ratio and how to increase engagement from a client case study.   One more tip - have a cover graphic ready with title if you like cohesiveness in your feed (see my IGTV video here) 2. New fonts Do you have them yet?  I do, and I’ve found my signature font - one I love that has a really cool background I can adjust to my brand color.  To see if you have it too, upload a photo to stories and tap the picture to add text.  You will see a horizontal menu just above your keyboard.  Swipe left to right to see the selection.  If you don’t have the new fonts yet, you’ll only have 4 choices.  If you do have them, you’ll have nine! Try them out and then tap the square at the top with a capitol letter “A” to give it a background effect.  You can go to my Instagram feed and search for the photo of clouds and an airplane wing.  Then, swipe left to view my video for how to access these cool fonts! Click here to view!     3. Chat rooms (like zoom) Great for large video groups Did you know you don’t have to use Zoom in order to hold a video meeting?  You can do it right inside the IG app for groups up to 50!  #gamechanger! Here’s how:  Go to messages Hit the video camera icon at top left (just beside the square with the pencil inside) Create a Room pops up - tap that and you’ll create this room with your Facebook name and profile pic from your linked account. Click on the blue button at bottom that says “create room as Ruthie Gray A menu will pop-up with friends to invite - OR you can select “skip”at top right and there FB gives you a room link.  Hit “copy link” to send to anyone via email, messenger, or anywhere you’d like! Once you’re ready for your meeting, you can click “join room”.  NOTE: you have to be in this room first for others to join! Let me know if you try this! Surprise!! New Development! You can now pin comments to your IG feed post!  Slide left beside comment to see the pin, tap it, and voila! You can pin up to 3 comments to the top of your posts!  This is good for social proof - if you get a stellar comment affirming your authority, sales, or customer service, you'll want to use this feature to showcase that testimony!   Up next week: How to use hashtags on Instagram (Q&A)   Sources listed: GO LIVE!  Jumpstart Kit

The Piketon Massacre
The Piketon Massacre
On the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Piketon, Ohio - eight members of the Rhoden family were viciously murdered execution style in their homes. Two years later in 2018, their neighbors, the Wagners, were arrested and charged with committing the largest massacre in Ohio’s history. Shocked by the arrests, this once close-knit and religious community remains divided and unable to cope. Was a respected and reputable Piketon family responsible for this unimaginable murder spree? Our team will examine the deep ties that connected both families. We’ll examine the evidence and possible motives for the crimes. For the first time we’ll speak with townspeople, psychological experts, respected investigators, friends and members of both families. Are the Wagners responsible for the murders, and if convicted, will they be executed? Or is it possible that there is still a murderer at large waiting to kill again?
