Welcome to the Connected Church News!
This news item is part of the weekly top 5 news bulletin (from Week 4, Nov 2022) specially packaged for leaders of Nonprofits, Churches, and Faith-based Social Ventures.
Instagram has announced that you can now add music to your regular Instagram image posts on Newsfeed. Now, these are regular photo posts, which is what originally made Instagram popular. And now instead of just posting, say, an announcement of your event, a ministry event, or a picture of your worship session or something like that, you can add music to it. Think about it. It makes things much more interesting. I think in a ministry and nonprofit setting, this can be really useful. And because of TikTok success, most social media channels are now realizing that music draws people, makes things a little more enhanced. So think about a music before you start posting photos now, the announcement says that you can choose a segment of between 5 and 90 seconds of a song to use. Of course, if you have a brand account, then you have a little bit of limitations on the type of songs, but you can still use Meta’s sound collection. Do pass this on to your social media team.
