Instagram is fun, so let’s keep it that way.

Filmmaker Casey Neistat is on a personal mission to keep up the quality of the social media platform and wants you to follow some simple rules to make it a better experience for everyone. One piece of advice, for instance, is “post then chill, post then chill, don’t bleed the feed” — amen, Casey.

Check out Neistat’s take on how to not suck at Instagram:

    My Instagram reflects my website, which means there’s lots of food and lifestyle-related pics, so yes, I agree with the video.

    This is AWESOME! It makes me want to go and watch old episodes of The Neistat Brothers show. They make such creative videos.

    He’s quite an amusing guy!
    I agree with the video – it should be about inspiration and documentation of lovely moments, not vanity.

    I love Instagram and this is such a great film. I dislike the “follow me!?” comments and and overloading of hashtags! Not cool.
