Launched in 2010, Instagram is a social networking app that allows users to share photos and videos using their handheld devices such as smartphones or tablet devices. Like Facebook or Twitter, you can create your own Instagram account and watch content through your newsfeed. If you post pictures or videos on the app, these will be shown on your profile.
The app showed so much potential that Facebook bought it just 18 months after its launch through an acquisition deal worth $1 Billion. What's even more impressive is that the platform has sustained its expected growth.
Recent data from statista.com reveals that Instagram is now the second most popular social networking app in the United States. As of February 2018, the app recorded more than 106.17 million monthly users.
