Should you be using Instagram “Face Filters”?

I know this question is lingering in the minds of many, including myself. If you are publishing an Instagram post on your personal account, then it is absolutely fine because it is meant to be fun and attractive.

However, I would not recommend you to use it on your Instagram business account as it may not serve the exact purpose. Again, it highly depends on your industry but typically, it is best to use only on personal Instagram account.
