Social media can be a great tool to promote yourself as an artist and get your work out there.
However, Facebook is a notorious time-waster and too many people sit tight by their screen after posting something on Instagram or whatever and wait to see how many ‘likes’ and comments they receive.
Two things are certain when it comes to people who run super popular accounts on social media. The first is that they don’t waste time waiting for the social love to come their way, and the second is that they have push notifications turned off on their phones.
How do I know this? Because of this next video, where an Instagram user with 8 million followers turned on his notifications and his iPhone looked like it was having a seizure.
