Instagram is one of the fastest-growing social media platforms, with over a billion monthly active users. Six out of every 10 adults online are on Instagram. And nowadays a lot of them are authors. In fact, Bookstagrammers are the new book influencers in the world of social media. If you want your book to be noticed, you can’t afford to ignore the platform. Social media professor Crystal King will share with you the tricks and tools to develop the best Instagram content (be it photos, Stories, Reels or IGTV), and to find and connect with others with the same interests.

During the course of WWII, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt instituted a series of “fireside chats” on the radio, as a way to regularly communicate self-assurance and calm during times of despair and uncertainty in our country. While once a thing of the past, thanks to the brilliant collaboration of billionaire entrepreneur and Shark Tank TV star, Mark Cuban, and Falon Fatemi, former CEO and Founder of Node.ai, Fireside chats are back, bigger and better than ever, and in a technological format that allows YOU to actively participate!
Fireside is the exclusive, invite-only new podcast platform for the next generation – a socially responsible space for us to come together in real-time to collaborate and create meaningful conversations. Together, we will engage in discussion, debate, and discourse in a public forum and make it a thing of celebration and beauty. We are ready to share our microphone with you and hope you’ll join us as we collaborate in the world’s most dynamic auditorium.
