Instagram

A photo sharing app

The purpose and history

Instagram is a photo-showing app. Its for taking pictures. The purpose of Instagram is to make connections with people who see the world in interesting ways. Instagram was created in October 2010 by Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger.

Pros and Cons

Pros

If the privacy is applied, it is impossible to see the photos.

Provides a variety of filters. These filters help in enhancing the images and add more character to them. Now there is no need for a separate editing app for basic editing and touch ups. There is hardly a useless functionality on Instagram.

Cons

The app is highly addictive. With hundreds of thousands of photos and the hashtag search, one could dig up thousands of photos of interest.

The photos are small.

You can't edit the privacy of each photo differently. They are all either public or private.

Personal Relevance

I use Instagram to show my friends what im up too and to share memories with them.
