If you’ve been following the website and its social networks for the last couple of years, you already know that I just love using Instagram to share my adventures doing PiercingMetal concert and event coverage with the world of visitors dropping in. As we close out the 2017 year, it was time to share what amounted to our “Top Nine” images on the Instagram app and I’ve presented them to you down below. I’ll throw in some background on them down below as well so check it out.
About These Visuals: I don’t think that I need to name any of the musical personalities in the “Top Nine” or do I? If so, that’s James Hetfield (Metallica), Mike Patton (Faith No More/Dead Cross), Bruce Dickinson (Iron Maiden), Papa Emeritus III (Ghost) and one of the Nameless Ghouls (also Ghost). It was cool to see visuals being in the top even though I liked some o the other Metallica photos in my feed a little bit more. Those concert photos were done with the professional rig and not my mobile phone and I shared them to Instagram with the Official Facebook Page we maintain. Oh wait, the Dickinson one was done with the mobile since I had a very close seat to the action. Among the other images are the now currently shuttered Webster Hall which was snapped during its final days and a quick hello from the Metallica shop that was set up during their recent tour. The image from the websites twelfth anniversary is there which is nice and by the way we are closing in on the thirteenth anniversary. The last one is probably the most recent photo and is photographer Ville Juurikkala who had a HIM exhibit up for a few days when the band was in our city for the final time during their farewell tour. The collage says that we got almost 33K likes to 1.6K images so please keep it coming if you are using Instagram as well. At the point of this writing we have 4,758 images posted and just under 1,300 followers. The more the merrier much like our Facebook I always say.
At this point in time the PiercingMetal Instagram is followed by a little under “1300” accounts and our demographic is 54% Men and 46% Women. Our biggest region is New York (no surprise there) and followed by Los Angeles. The top age range is 25-34.
