Instagram

(INSTAnt camera teleGRAM) A very popular photo and video social networking service for mobile devices founded in 2010. Initially for iOS, Android and website versions were added in 2012.

Pictures taken with the Instagram app can be sent to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, foursquare or Flickr, as well as to the user's account on the Instagram website. In 2012, Instagram became famous overnight when Facebook announced its acquisition of the year-and-a-half old company for USD $1 billion.

Stories and Live Video
In 2016, Stories was added that lets users post photos and short videos that last for 24 hours. A slide show can be created by adding images and videos. Also in 2016, Live Video lets Instagram users share videos in real time. See Boomerang and Hyperlapse.

Follow Your Favorite Instagrammer
Individuals, entertainers and commercial enterprises post images about their area of interest, invite comments and enable people to "follow" them similar to Twitter.


Enhance Before Sending
Instagram includes a raft of image filters users can choose before sending off their photos. With a couple of taps on the iPhone app, this original photo (top) was greatly enhanced. See image filter.
