Although it is difficult to connect with people online, many fandoms are joined by Instagram fan pages. Yiseth Nunez, a WMS student, states, having a fan page is a way to “show your love” for your favorite celebrity or idol.
You can inspire users who also like it.” However, it is hard when someone first starts; many people are easily confused when it comes to setting up a fan page.”
- Choose a good username
The first step of creating a fan page on Instagram is coming up with a great username. Fan pages on social media take pride in their usernames; it’s how other fan pages identify them. Inside jokes, or something special the fandom shares is something that can be braided in the username to make it unique, or funny. For instance, a Dan, and Phil account could be called @dansladydoor, and an Adelaine Morin might be called @beepbopmorin.
- High-quality profile picture
A photo is also needed for an Instagram account. Usually, for a personal Instagram account users add a clear picture of themselves, but most fan pages create their profile picture to use.
- Write the perfect bio
Bios are also very important for a fan page. They let you share a bit about your real off-screen personality. Users include different data in their bio, but it is essential to add who the fan page is for. It is also necessary to add pronouns, first name/ nickname, and age range.
- Start creating content
After you give Instagram the information needed to create an account, you’ll need to create the first post. Your first post changes the way other fan pages look at each other; everyone desires to have a good first impression, like in life. Usually, for a first post, people re-post a photo of their idol with a caption. For the first caption, you may include facts about yourself, like sports you play or books you like. Fan pages frequently create photo collages, memes, or videos to post.
- Schedule your posts
The last thing to do is to create a constant posting schedule. Fan accounts may post once a week or every day. The schedules are based on what users can do in the time they are free.
A fan page should be something that people love. Rupita Refat talks about how people should stop worrying about what other people think, and that “It’s your fan page, not for them.”
