Instagram: Online photo-sharing and social networking service
Instagram is an American photo and video sharing social networking service owned by Facebook, created by Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger and originally launched on iOS in October 2010. The Android version was released in April 2012, followed by a feature-limited desktop interface in November 2012, a Fire OS app in June 2014, and an app for Windows 10 in October 2016.

Users can browse other users' content by tags and locations and view trending content. Users can like photos and follow other users to add their content to a feed.
