Instagram is a social mobile app that works on android, windows and iOs phones and even the computer system. It is more or less integration of some apps’ special features, into one application with an easy and fast interface. This application is visually used by many in the world today. Like other social media applications such as Twitter and Facebook amongst others. It allows for pictures and video (not more than 15 seconds) uploads.
However, unlike Facebook and Twitter, where links, status, quizzes, pictures, etc can be posted. Instagram will only allow users to upload videos and pictures. The application runs like some other app with an interface which includes:
- Hipstamatic’s cool photo effects
- Reddit’s popularity filter
- Facebook’s video & picture upload
- Twitter’s followers & hashtags ideas.
In terms of sharing, Instagram is more or less like the Twitter social media platform. Users choose people or brands to follow, and their pictures/videos appear on the user’s Instagram timeline page. Others can still follow the user as well. The user pictures/videos the posts will also appear on the people timeline they are following. Also, you can unfollow a user whenever you feel like, with just one click.
More features of Instagram
Instagram has some attribute of ‘Facebook’, and some other social media platforms. This is in respect to the posting of photos/videos’. But unlike Facebook, there is no need for permission to add someone to your circle. Once you click on ‘follow’, you automatically follow the person/brand you intend to follow.
The user can browse through other people’s photos without following them. But again this is if their account is not a private account, just as people can do the same to your own account too. A user can also comment and like or unlike a post. Unlike Facebook, a user cannot save a post except through the use of other apps such as the InstaSave service.
Generally, Instagram is a fun application. It creates an avenue for exposure, in terms of fashion, entertainment, music and so on. It brings people closer to each other, a user can easily access his or her favorite celebrity, crush, role model, friends and people around the world. Therefore the platform has made it possible to have diverse people in a user’s circle.
Instagram Photo and Videos – Altering a photo
A user can decide to alter a photo they intend to post, using any of the 17 filters on the application. Images change as the user flips through the filters. There is also the option of going back to the original photo if the user wants to. Altering photos is an option that a user might decide to use or not. This solely depends on if the user deems it necessary or not.
