What was born in 2010 as a simple application to edit photos, apply filters and share them with our friends, over the years has become one of the most important social networks on the planet, up to Facebook or Twitter. We talked about Instagram, the photography platform created by Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger in which millions of users, including some of the world’s best known celebrities, post photos and videos of their daily lives.
And as it could not be otherwise, the social photo network par excellence also has its own mobile application for iPhone and iPad. In fact, it was just iOS platform for which Instagram was created that, due to its popularity, would eventually develop web, Android and Windows Phone versions later. In it we can access all the functions that have made this social network one of the most popular: publish photos, videos, apply filters, follow other users and like other publications.
Who uses Instagram?
Well practically everyone. That you still do not use it? Well you must be one of the few that have not yet been released on this platform, because today it is estimated that it has more than 500 million users. And although the prototype user is usually a young person or teenager (terms and conditions indicate that you must have a minimum of 13 years of age), it is also widely used by brands and celebrities to get even closer to their audience.
From there we find from singers like Alaska, Shakira, Alejandro Sanz or Selena Gomez to characters from the Spanish show business such as Makoke, Dulceida, Ylenia or Bea from Big Brother, passing sportsmen of the stature of Cristiano Ronaldo or Messi. As you can see, there is room for everyone in this social network.
