1. Grow your Instagram following across the web

You can share automatically to some places from the app, but it doesn't always turn out so great — no one wants to click through from a tweet with a link! IFTTT is a free service that helps you control and customize how you use over 450 services...including Instagram. Check it out:

2. Create an archive of all your Instagram pics and videos

You can also use IFTTT to back up your Instagrams, automatically, to places like Google Drive or Dropbox. No more scrolling through a million pics to find your favorites.

3. Connect Instagram to all of your other apps

Think beyond social media! Connect Instagram to photo sites like Flickr, your Gmail, or Slack. There are literally thousands of combinations to explore.
