US State Department Joins Instagram
On Monday, the United States State Department launched its very own Instagram account.
According to the US agency, the Instagram account will be “showcasing behind-the-scenes images of the Department’s domestic and overseas work, including the Secretary’s travels.”
However, this is not the first social media account of the State Department as it already has a long list of social networks which it has accounts on.
The first post of the Instagram account of the US State Department is a video of Secretary of State John Kerry.
Kerry said, “Finally, the State Department is on Instagram!”
As of publishing, the account still has just 8 posts and just over 3,500 followers.
Other posts include two photos of the United Nations headquarters in New York City.
“All eyes are on New York this week as foreign leaders gather for the 68th #UN General Assembly. #UNGA,” the State Department said in one photo.
“This week, world leaders will make statements from this podium. What would you say if you were standing here? #UNGA #statedept” it said in another.
It also carried a photo of President Obama addressing the UN General Assembly, a photo of flags in storage for the General Assembly, and a video of “The Beast” driving through New York City.
