As we all know facebook has been trying to compete with youtube.

Instagram the fbook owned platform now has IGTV

MY THOUGHTS ON IGTV, AND HOW TO USE IT TO GROW YOUR IG ACCOUNT

First of all lets go back to when IG stories came out and the big competition between snapchat and ig stories. Instagram stories definitely came out on top as a lot of snapchat users switched over to ig(or back to ig)

Now IG and FBOOK are fighting youtube combined these are two powerful platforms, seeing the track record here I think its safe to say there will be some interesting tricks and tactics IG and FBOOK use to get a slice of market share from YTUBE


Lets look at stories history

when IG stories first came out people that were using it on a consistent basis were getting rewarded because thats what IG wanted to build up so they reward the creators by giving them a push in views and reach to help motivate them into doing more stories.

why IGTV will give you a push in followers etc

IG def wants to build up this platform and they will reward the first movers and the ones really creating and adding high quality content.

You can already tell this by the extra tabs on IGTV like ''FOR YOU'' and ""POPULAR"" IG can essentially push anyone they want to help into your popular feed etc

i ultimately feel this will also be a algorithm tick in your organic reach and how you grow followers.

looking at the platform they have the same ranking algorithm factors like youtube has. where you can comment like and share a video from the built in igtv platform

Let me know what you guys think of IGTV and how you plan on using it to grow your accounts

You could exploit this by just posting video content on it, as the ranking algorithm has probably not been tuned yet. This algorithm will increase on the long run of course.. I would suggest to make use of this, as instagram really does not have a baseline for this new type of behavior yet!

Im seeing a lot of ranking factors similar to youtube.

i think the main reason they put IGTV was becuase of '' USER TIME'' a way to keep users on their platform for longer and their algorithm is based off watch time and the people creating long form content that keeps people watching past 2:30+ minutes.

will get rewarded by the algo by getting their content pushed into the popular tab ultimately gaining more exposure to the video and their account page
