#QOTD: Where do you watch or listen to the #AskGaryVee Show?#TIMESTAMPS00:58 – Do you think it is necessary to have an outgoing personality to be a successful entrepreneur? 02:37 – Numbers of monthly users aside, do you think Instagram is actually a larger social network than twitter. 04:02 – What actor would you want to play you in a movie about your life? 04:40 – I notice that you post the same things multiple times. Please explain why this is a calculated move and not obnoxious. 07:27 – Because you have this 500 person agency, I want you to explain why people should use a digital agency? whats the circumstances? when should you use it? when not to use it? Why not just control it and own it internally? #LINKS00:57…08:10…I think that Instagram and Twitter are tremendously different. Look, Twitter is the town hall, the cocktail party of the social world. When things happen in the world and there’s breaking news, we’re running to Twitter not Instagram – we want the chatter, not the images. However, I do believe that Instagram has found a way (at least up til now) to gain the most attention from the consumer where we’ve found ourselves looking at those pictures pretty consistently. Attention wins and that’s what Instagram has been able to capture. People are actually consuming content on Instagram, whereas on Twitter, those days are over. Back in the day I used to be able to send out a tweet and although I had a substantially lower reach I was still able to garner that attention. Instagram, due to its image-focused nature, is naturally able to capture our attention more easily. And let’s face it, we’re lazy, and it’s much easier to consume an image than to take the time to read a few lines or click through to a long form piece of content. It’s just the nature of our tendencies, our attention spans, and the mediums where we’re consuming this content, which happens to stem from the palms of our hands.OH! And did I mention? I have an Instagram account. You should follow me 🙂 @GaryVee
