Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/) is an American photo and video-sharing social networking service owned by Facebook It was created by Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger, and launched on October 6, 2010 exclusively on iOS, and later for other devices. The app allows users to upload photos and videos, which can be edited with filters and organized with tags and location information. An account's posts can be shared publicly or with pre-approved followers, and users can browse content by tags and locations and view trending content. Users can like photos and follow other users to add their content to a feed.

Originally distinguished by only allowing content to be framed in a square (1:1) aspect ratio with 640 pixels to match the display width of iPhones, these restrictions were later eased in 2015 with an increase to 1080 pixels. Instagram also has messaging features, the ability to include multiple images or videos in a single post, as well as "Stories" — similar to Snapchat — which allows users to post photos and videos to a sequential feed, with each post accessible by others for 24 hours each.

After its launch, Instagram rapidly gained popularity, with one million registered users in two months, 10 million in a year, and 1 billion as of May 2019. In April 2012, Facebook acquired the service for approximately US$1 billion in cash and stock.
