Some news outlets understand the value of social media. For months, iconic magazine National Geographic has been wowing its 984,000 fans on Instagram, where their photos feature breath-taking views of animals, people and places across the world.
Instagram is celebrated as an ideal hub for photography enthusiasts, and who better to showcase stunning pics than a magazine well-respected for its images? National Geographic knows its photographers deserve a platform, and that's where their Instagram feed comes in.
Every day, the NatGeo feed publishes at least one photo from their magazine or unpublished reports, giving us a taste of what their photographers are experiencing in far-flung regions.
