It's not a secret that the majority of content that we like to share in social media is images. Some of us lazy users, don't even add a caption!

Originally, Instagram was designed as a social platform with a continuous feed of solely images. Texts were optional. 

Thus, when creating an Instagram post in PromoRepublic, adding a picture is mandatory. Otherwise, you won't be able to either schedule or publish it. Instead you will be prompted with a red camera icon to the right (pictured below).

If you want to share a link, feel free to insert it into the text field. Automatically a URL preview will be uploaded, containing a thumbnail picture and some short text. Depending on the website settings, you can see text only auto-populated. 

Please, note that the preview image shown is not necessarily your post picture nor the post itself. Still, the red camera icon will jump on the right.
