Since its inception in October 2010, Instagram has become the premier photo-sharing program on the market, creating an enormous social networking platform that allows its 100 million users to take photographs, apply a digital filter to it and then share it with other users, be it through Instagram itself or other social networks such as Twitter and Facebook. The fact that Facebook offered to purchase the company for $1 billion in cash and stock after just 18 months of its program going live speaks for itself (with just 13 employees at the time, one can only imagine the staff party that Instagram had that Christmas). Instagram’s success lies in its simplicity, as well as the impressive filters that users can apply to their photographs; in just a matter of seconds, one can make a seemingly prosaic photograph appear illuminating and a good snap, well, outstanding.
