I avoided it for a long time, but I finally gave in and started a Facebook page. The thing that tipped the scales for me was the ability to reach a wider circle of acquaintances; there are simply more people I know on FB than IG. Plus, one can post on Instagram and click a box that posts it on Facebook automatically. I notice some differences, though. For one, the hashtag game seems more restrained on Facebook, but that might just be inexperience on my part.
