Instagram is actually a combination of the two words instant camera and telegram, which means instant messaging through photos and cameras. Instagram is a free social network created to share photos and videos. Instagram, like most social media apps, allows you to follow the users you like, which is called following. Following people allows you to see the recent posts of the people you follow on the home page. Their post is Like, which mainly means liking, and also below the post, you can express your opinion or feeling and leave a so-called comment.
Instagram creators Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger were working on a multi-purpose project called Burbn. This project was related to mobile photography. Their activity continued and expanded in San Francisco. Mike believed that the project had similarities to the foursquare program, but this project could have included more features, so the burn project continued to focus on sharing photos.
