Instagram has announced a music channel , @Music . This channel is “dedicated to exploring music around the globe.” Instagram aims to use its photo-sharing social community to promote discussions on music.
The idea behind this channel was fueled by the fact that one-quarter of the most popular accounts on Instagram today are those coming from musicians. A number of popular artists today have Instagram accounts, including Davido , Wizkid , D’banj , Rihanna , Justin Bieber and more.
Instagram says the new Channel will cover lots of music related activities from both already established and upcoming artists. Content will include short profiles of featured artists and a mix of editorial series, including one offering 15-second music lessons and another spotlighting independent artists in cities around the world.
The Channel (@music) will post once daily from Tuesday through Sunday and each discussion will be specified by a designated hash tag.
