My top twelve Lake Norman accounts to follow on Instagram

Maybe you’re new to Instagram and you’re having a hard time navigating through all the content to find something you really love. One great way to start is to follow a hashtag that represents something you’d like to know more about. For instance, I follow #corneliusnc, which has 26.9k posts and #huntersvillenc, which has 38.7K posts. It’s simple. Open Instagram and tap the search button at the bottom. Then type in the search bar a “#” followed by the category you’re interested in. Tap follow. Instagram will start sending you a sampling of that hashtag’s content. When you see something you like, follow that account.

If you’re looking for something more specific, here are my top local accounts to follow. Cheers.
