Instagram is an extremely popular photo-sharing application founded in 2010 by Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger. In April 2012, the app had grown to have 100 million active users and was acquired by Facebook for about US$1 billion. The app now has over 150 million active users, and is available through the Apple Apps Store, Google Play, and Windows Phone Store. Users use Instagram by uploading photos & videos (video added in June 2013) and adding descriptions including hashtags and tagging friends. Users may also like pictures and follow other users. To date, billions of photos have been uploaded and the service is still growing.
