After reading through this article and looking at some of the examples shown, it’s really quite interesting how much social media can do for an artist. I had always thought that social media was just a place where teenagers get lost in, sending snap-chats back and forth, posting tweets about drama and what not, but this article made me realize that it can be used for much more than that. Artists and advertisers everywhere are using InstaGram, Twitter, and much more to attract attention to their work or product.
This makes me want to start new profiles to post strictly my artwork, photos, etc… because if it has the possibility of expanding my audience, well, that sounds pretty awesome. And after all, your following is usually your customer base as well. So becoming well know through social media apps could in this day and age, be the key to becoming a successful artist.
