Instagram is a simple way to capture and share the world’s moments. Follow your friends and family to see what they’re up to, and discover accounts from all over the world that are sharing things you love. Join the community of over 500 million people and express yourself by sharing all the moments of your day––the highlights and everything in between, too.
Use Instagram to:
• Post photos and videos you want to keep on your profile grid. Edit them with filters and creative tools, and combine multiple clips into one video.
• Share multiple photos and videos (as many as you want!) to your story. Bring them to life with text and drawing tools. They disappear after 24 hours and won't appear on your profile grid or in feed.
• Watch stories from the people you follow in a bar at the top of your feed. View them at your own pace.
• Discover photos and videos you might like and follow new accounts in the Explore tab.
• Send private messages, photos, videos and posts from your feed directly to friends with Instagram Direct.
• Instantly share your posts to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and other social networks.
• Use Handoff to switch between your Apple Watch and your iPhone.

Its my favorite
Im lost really with all the amazing artists and photography and short videos but it doesn't bother me too much because its not always about me. I have made friends with people from all parts of the world , bought a painting from an amazing artist I follow in the 🇬🇧 uk and have a favorite confidant in Pennsylvania and keep up with a few friends who moved to New York. And it is a great place to see creatives Takubeats who's music and photography I may never have heard of. It is my favorite social media platform. The only thing is they have gotten really strict not letting you add music that I use for little clips.. I am not making any money off my james bond theme that I paid 1.29 for for example.. thats the only thing that's irritating, besides that they have just improved and the redesign of their widget was kind of a bad choice considering they had their choice of millions of entries... but that has no effect on the content of the app... i am really irritated that when I piece together a little clip and add a soundtrack then its removed, especially since I have only a few followers... and Sia encouraged people to make videos to her songs and they remove them .. change that... sometimes it's just something for fun ... Instagram and facebook have to be more lenient about it especially if I spent 1.29 on something ill never use .... but its still a five star
Would love viewing options
Although no other app has captured the attention of so many around the world & been more effective at communicating ideas, beauty, creativity or the fostering of relationships, many are disappointed that their viewing option of 'real-time' posting has been eliminated. The other part that used to drive a real hope into the hearts of IG users was the 'recommendation' area that picked aspiring photographers or artists and brought great opportunity to those who were 'recommended'. It was almost like "playing the lottery" as literally lives were changed for those people who tapped into the energy created by a 'recommended' account. It caused people to view quality with the hope that if they improved their presentation or quality of their own posts that there was a chance of winning that 'lotto'. There is a general sense now that the difficulty of 'making it' is not worth it....almost as though there's 'no hope' anymore in putting forth a great effort to post with the hopes of building a high follower count. For me, I came in at the very end of the 'Glory Days' and am content with taking the slow growth road over time....and in the meantime, building several lasting relationships with people who love California Vineyard landscapes (my personal & professional focus). So, 4 stars for probably the best app for many years to come....even with its current blemishes. Nicholas Karavidas, Winemaker
My hatred for Instagram is unfathomable
When this app first came out it was great. I started my most popular account, bees420, (im currently bees421) a little over one year ago. When I started it, I made it a joke, however throughout the life of that account, as I gained more followers, I started taking it seriously. I could communicate with people around the world that I had never met. I made friends with people from many different countries, and bonded with thousands of people. A few days ago, I reached 17,000 followers, the most I have ever gotten on any account. Later that day, when I went to post a picture, I received an error that I had been logged out. When I tried to log back in, I received the message that I had been disabled for being against the community guidelines. I wanted to know specifically what I did wrong, and learned that I was apparently "glorifying self harm", which is completely false. I made a new account to try to get my followers back, and through the help of my friends I gained about 600 followers, but the other 16,400 people have no idea where I went. When I saw what had happened I was shaking for 20 minutes, and I wanted to die. Instagram deleted my successful account for no reason, and later I learned that they were deleting other accounts unfairly as well. Instagram has been corrupted and is no longer a good app.
