If you haven’t heard of Instagram, you may be wondering what it is. It is a photo and video sharing service that was founded in 2010 by Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger. In April 2012, Facebook acquired the company for approximately US$1 billion. Now, more than ever, people are using this service to share photos and videos with their friends and family. In fact Picuki, it is now the most popular app on the social media website.
As of August 2017, there are 30 million users of the iPhone version of Instagram. The app has been available on Android for a few months and recently broke the 1 million download mark. Bell, Karissa, and David Cohen released a faster and more compact version of the app. They wrote the article for Adweek. They also spoke with Alexia Tsotsis, who created the Instagram blog. The new features of the app are described below.
The recent release of the Android version of the Instagram app is another big update. The new application is smaller and faster than the iPhone version. According to Instagram, the new version will support more than 30 million users. It will soon launch on PCs and tablets, as well. In April 2017, Instagram had 700 million active users – twice as many as Twitter. With these new additions, the app is gaining momentum. There are even plans to introduce a website for Instagram.
In June 2015, Instagram announced that it is ending its Apple Watch app. The iPhone app was built using watchOS 1 SDK, and the company has decided to discontinue this version. While Instagram is committed to developing its iPhone app, it has also decided to drop the Apple Watch app entirely. This means that the app will no longer be available for users of the Apple Watch. This means that if you’re looking to buy an AppleWatch, don’t waste your time on Instagram.
The iPhone app also changed. In June 2015, the desktop version was redesigned. It became more flat and minimalist. The layout was very similar to the mobile version. The Instagram homepage only had three photos per row. Profile pictures were also made circular. After the re-design, the iPhone app is no longer a standalone app for watchOS. This change is a major step for the iPhone. And for its users, it’s a great change!
In June 2017, Instagram accidentally advertised itself on Facebook with a rape threat photo. Immediately after the post was published, Instagram removed it and blocked posts that support Soleimani. After the first class action lawsuit was filed, the company was forced to remove the posts and banned them from its site. Eventually, Instagram also removed these posts and blocked them, allowing the user to get back to their original content. It’s all about the right way to express yourself and make your audience feel comfortable.
