  • “Instagram is an incredibly intuitive and easy-to-use plat-form; however, it is important to post quality images ratherthan quantity. Instagram automatically converts all images square format so images should be sized appropriately to avoid unwanted cropping. When publishing patient cases,images need to be anonymized before posting to Instagram to ensure that no protected health information gets published. Instagram does not have in-app tools to anonymize the image. Lastly, the default setting for Instagram videos is autoplay with the sound off. The user must actively turn the volume up on their device to hear the video’s sound.”
