There are many social media platforms, but out of all of them, Instagram is the one that grew the fastest. In a concise amount of time, Instagram gained a lot of popularity and users. One reason it grew so fast is that it was founded and is owned by Facebook. To this date, FaceBook is the most used social media platform, so it already has a number of users.
When Instagram came out in 2010, FaceBook was able to advertise the platform to its existing users. Along with that, it was something new. People were used to apps to share their thoughts, but one exclusively for pictures was a new concept that many enjoyed.
Instagram is a very popular site that gained its popularity in a very short time. It helped that Instagram was founded through Facebook and is actually owned by Facebook. Since Facebook was created in 2004, it has been used many more years than Instagram. Instagram was invented in 2010 and launched shortly after that. Since Instagram was already created by a popular company, Facebook could advertise Instagram using their marketing tools.
They also had plenty of money to fund this new app, Instagram. Therefore, it is not surprising that Instagram became such a huge success in such a short amount of time. Whenever a company becomes successful with millions of dollars, they can create another successful business or product more easily since they have the money.
