The idea that social media can connect people all around the world can be a wonderful thing. The ability of social platforms to reveal locations to millions in an instant may not be loved by everyone, but it certainly is exposing the great outdoors to a new demographic.
The hashtag #nature has been used on Instagram over 400 million times! These kinds of tags have exposed scenic locations to people who never even heard about their beauty. Some believe the outdoors should be a place of discovery and exploration – not a place to get more likes. In contrast, many national parks staff use social media platforms like Instagram to gain followers and stay connected with a new generation of visitors. (1)
With Instagram driving new visitors to get the perfect shot and park agencies using the platform as a tool for education, there is a clear connection between outdoor adventures and photo sharing networks. As more people take off on excursions to get that perfect shot in scenic locations, they will want gear and accessories that enhance their Insta-grid aesthetic and reinforce their outdoorsy image.
With the popularity of outdoor lifestyles continuing to rise, the trend of sharing nature photos on social media is sure to continuing growing as well. High-quality, unique promotional products are a great way for brands to get exposure via this popular Instagram trend. Brands who promote their message on outdoor gear, apparel and accessories are certainly likely to end up gaining extra exposure thanks to #nature and the Instagram era.
