What is Instagram?

Instagram definition: Instagram is a social media network launched in 2010 by Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger. It was bought by Facebook in 2012.

Instagram is the world’s sixth most popular social media platform with one billion active monthly users. The platform focuses on photo and video sharing.

Users can take, share and edit photos to be shared with their friends. Each post can include captions and hashtags. It grew in popularity because it allowed users to apply filters to their images.

Instagram also allows users to post “stories”, a type of disappearing content that appears at the top of a news feed for 24 hours; over 50% of their users watch and use stories.

Manage all your social media accounts in one place.

Craft, schedule, & auto-post content to all your social channels, then track analytics and manage interactions from a single, easy-to-use dashboard.
