Insight on Instagram

by Michelle C. Motivational Speaker

You must not be new to this term, right? Being a part of this world every single person who owns a mobile, is on Instagram. We all know that it is an American photo and video sharing social networking service and guess what? Face book happens to be the owner! Kevin and Mike had been credited for packing such a unique world in just an app. Not only does this app allow its lucky users to upload media but that media too is offered filters, tags and location information. One of the reasons it has become so popular is because it offers a private account for people who like to be only with their close friends. If you don't want strangers peeping onto your account and your personal information or your pictures maybe then you may work in perfect synergy with Instagram. This way you can freely share anything as per your mood but don't have to worry about people knowing the updates as your account would be restricted to the ones you want. Approval of a follow request sure is a strong policy that Instagram offers you.

Although sharing stuff is also common among the 2 billion Facebook users out there but what actually makes Instagram different is how it represents the uploaded content. Yes! Instagram allows only the content to be framed in 1:1 that is a square with 640 pixels to match the display width of the iPhone screen, although it changed to 1080 pixels in 2015. See how up-to-date this app happens to be?

We all get the point that it is a photo and video sharing site and obviously allows it, but that too is available in different fun forms and Instagram stories are one of those kinds. If you too are followers of a famous personality like anybody else then you would know it too, people literally go crazy to see these stories as these are available for a span of 24 hours. By far the best way your celebrity crushes can show their daily routines and what they are up to is through these crazy stories. You get to see their pictures and daily vlogs and it's easy for them too because Instagram keeps every hustle and bustle caused by the fans, in its control. As described by a report of 2019, these stories gained over 500 million users daily, that is insane!

It was typically brought to life in 2010 and surprisingly gained popularity like nothing else, leveraging over a million registered users in just two months which too soared up to a decent ten million in just a year. The fact that over 40 billion photos were uploaded in 5 years is ample enough to blow anybody's mind. All these fancies apart, Instagram too had to face criticism due to its policies and interfaces changes and primarily due to the improper content that its users uploaded.

The person who simply rocked here was Cristiano Ronaldo with over 222 million followers going crazy after him. Bringing women under consideration we have Arian Grande who has been successful in grasping 187 million fans and followers.

Being the 4th most downloaded app today, it was declared as runner up for the best mobile app in 2010.

Bringing everything to a much simpler note, Instagram is all about visual sharing so we everybody is on an urge to find the best photos and videos they have got with an intension to share with everybody. Instagram user profile owns a followers and the following count that makes everybody clear about one's circle of liking and friends. Every user profile typically owns a button that allows you to follow someone and you become friends of the person you tend to ping up if he approves your follow request. 

Interacting on posts is fun too! You basically double tap on the photo that you like and it leaves a pretty little heart. We can share it through Instagram direct or save it by clicking that cute icon by the side of the post. 

If you are planning to add more friends or maybe interested to increase your following counts then Instagram serves you with a search bar to browse through tailor posts that are recommended to you and if you know exactly whom you are going to connect with then you are given an option type and search to ping that person up.

To wrap things up, Instagram is one of those engrossing apps that has become a mere addiction to all those cool guys around and is by far the symbol of trend and style.
