I have an account but not for real estate. The only downside is you only get one link, and that's in your bio. That right there is what keeps me from posting too often.

I'm on it with 49 followers and I'm following 277 people.  It is my business account, but I also follow a subset of people and companies I'm interested in (mostly government agencies, real estate related, bodybuilders and very few competitive shooters).

 

I get a few likes on a couple of my photos and infographics.  No business has come from it and I'm not holding my breath.

I know that Instagram is popular .. and highly-used ... by many of the young homebuying segment, Sally K. & David L. Hanson  .. but darn if I can come up with HOW a Lender can utilize it within their marketing.  Need to do more homework, because I can see where it could prove beneficial ...

Have one, rarely visit it, but I do the easy post to it when it's offered on sites; visible is hire-able in our social media world. It's not in my top 5 though.

1. Active Rain ( I post most here).

2.  Facebook (biz page).

3. Youtube

4. Linked In 

5. Vine/Pinterest tied for 5th in usage.
