Instagram is one of the fastest booming social media platforms in our world today. The social media platform was initially released on the 6th of October 2010 exclusively on iOS through the APP store. This means Instagram is eight years old. Instagram was created by Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger. The android version was released over a year later in April 2012.


It was made available on Windows 10 mobile in April 2016 and the Windows 10 version was made available in October 2016. Instagram is popularly known as “IG” or “Insta” by making. It is a photo and video sharing platform. Photo and videos can be edited with different kinds of filters; users can also add location and use hashtags on their photos while uploading to the platform. Facebook bought Instagram in March 2012 for the sum of $1 billion in cash and stock. I hope you find this information helpful.

Instagram and Twitter are two examples of social media platforms. Both are similar in that they were created for content and media sharing. However, there are a lot of differences between the two social media platforms. Instagram was created in 2010, and it was created solely for media sharing; that is, it is a platform where you can post pictures, short videos for friends to view. Operations on twitter are more than media sharing; you can post different content on twitter. In fact, twitter is a good platform for politicians and celebrities because of news on twitter trends very easily.

On Twitter, you can't post any content using more than 140 characters. Instagram, on the other hand, does not really have a specific character limit. Twitter supports posting of ordinary text, video, pictures, and it is a good platform to conduct polls. Instagram focuses mainly on media sharing. This means you can only post pictures, GIFs, videos, and add captions or hashtags to them.

I don’t have one particular Instagrammer that is my favorite because I like to look at all sorts of different pictures. When I become interested in certain celebrities or I watch a movie and I like the actors in it, I may want to learn more about this new actor.


Usually celebrities have Instagram accounts. I will search for them and look at their pictures if I have access to it. I like to analyze and learn about people, so using Instagram is the best way to do that. If I had to pick a favorite Instagrammer, I would not be able to narrow it down to just one person. Instead, I enjoy looking at soccer players’ Instagram to see what other hobbies they like to do.

There are many reasons why a successful company would invent or create another company. It is because they have the money and know-how to design a company or product that relates to the original product. However, they may want the new product or service to stand on its own. They want the users to use both products which are those offered by Facebook and by Instagram. If Facebook was to integrate with Instagram, the users may only choose one either Facebook or Instagram to use and not both of them.


So, keeping them separate may have increased the number of users that created accounts for both Facebook and Instagram. It is often believed that combining them will give Instagram more success, but it doesn’t always work out that way.

Definitely, I do think Instagram can take over Facebook in the user count. It’s a matter of time; Instagram will become the leading social media platform in the world. In fact, many experts are already predicting that Instagram will overtake Facebook in user statistics by 2020.


In 2017, Facebook lost over 2.5 million users under the age of 25 in the United States alone. Instagram, on the other hand, had over 800 million users between December 2016 and September 2017. This shows clearly that many users are gravitating towards the use of Instagram rather than Facebook. Instagram also offers a more mobile-friendly platform which gives its users a better experience. Hope you find this information helpful.

Instagram is a popular website for people to create an account and then post pictures for their friends and family to see. It seems as if Instagram has been around forever, but it really has only been around for a short period of time. In the middle of 2010, the construction of Instagram was complete and it went viral in July. The creator of Instagram was Kevin Systrom and he was the first person to post a picture on Instagram.


He posted a picture of his dog and the foot of one of his friends as the first post. Instagram has actually technically gone viral several times after its initial launch. This is because it went viral on other devices like Android.

UI stands for user interface. User interface is the things that the user sees on the screen based on the site that they are on. Behind the scenes, there are all sorts of codes that the user never sees. These codes and languages are what makes the site work. One problem that Instagram faced was when they were faced with criticism based on offending language. Also, Instagram wanted to have the users’ name and photos can be used by businesses.


This idea brought about criticism about who owns the content that is displayed on the screen of Instagram. Other issues that have come about with Instagram include censorship problems, negative comments displayed, a timeline algorithm and promoting illicit drugs or exposing mental health problems on Instagram.

The correct answer to this question is No. Facebook is not required to sign up for Instagram. While it is not required, the user does have the option to use their Facebook to create an Instagram account. This will link the two platforms together, so when a post is done on Instagram, it will be automatically shared on Facebook. Creating an account with Facebook will also allow the users to see their friend's usernames on Instagram and be able to follow them. If one doesn't have a Facebook, they can sign up with an email address or by using their phone number. From there, all that is required is a unique password.

Before you delete your Instagram account, it should be noted that doing so will permanently erase your information and data. There is no other way you can retrieve back your account once you delete it. If you are sure that you want to delete your Instagram account, log in to your account and go to the Delete Your Account page.

Once done, click on the drop-down menu next to “Why are you deleting your account?” and it will prompt you to re-enter your password. Please note that you have to state your reason why you plan to delete your account – it may be for personal reasons or any reasons you see fit. Click “Permanently delete my account”, and that is the last step.

There are a lot of people who wish that they would get a lot of likes on Instagram. It seems that celebrities find it easy to get likes. People would just like their photo because they like the celebrity. It can be harder for regular people to get the likes that they want unless they start using hashtags. Hashtags will allow other people to view their posts.

When other people like their posts, they can get more likes on Instagram. You may use up to 30 hashtags on your Instagram post so that you can place the hashtags that will offer the most engagement from other people. Yet, a lot of marketers say that you can work with about 5 to 6 just so you can get the likes that you are targeting from certain people.
