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.

    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.
