Instagram was launched in October 2010 by co-founders Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Download the free app on your iPhone or Android and then simply snap a photo and choose a filter to transform the look and feel. Pictures are shared on Instagram, and can be easily uploaded to other social media platforms including Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr.
PUBLIC OR PRIVATE?
Photos are public by default which means they are visible to anyone using Instagram or on the instagram.com website, however you can choose to make your account private — then only people who follow you on Instagram will be able to see your photos.
