What is Instagram?
Instagram is a video and photo sharing social media platform. Instagram is also called as IG and is available for apple and IOS. The application was founded by an American entrepreuner with the intention of expanding community by bringing people closer. The platform allows the user to share his photos or videos publicly or privately through his Instagram handle. The application is typically used by young-adults and teenagers. The application is upgraded every single year and the users are introduced to new features.
Instagram is famous for the filters that they use. Along with that, the user can also use the hashtags to gain popularity. Bloggers and social media influencers use Instagram to promote their blogs. The influencers of Instagram monetise their account by promoting brands and posting sponsored posts. For monetising the account, the user should have his account verified by Instagram and also should have a large number of Instagram followers.
Instagram became popular because of the instant validation that was given to the user. The user can instantly see the likes and comments once he has posted some content. Instagram gives the users the liberty to like, share and comment on a particular image or video.
The application’s algorithm works in such a way that, the user only sees the content he is interested in. A few years back, upon seeing the success of Instagram Facebook decided to buy Instagram by paying 1 billion dollars. Therefore, Instagram solely belongs to Facebook.
