A Brief History of Instagram
Instagram is a free photo sharing application tat allows users to take a photo, apply a digital filter, then share it on a variety of social networking services including Instagram's own. A distinctive feature confines photos into a square shape, in homage to bot the Kodak Instamatic and Polaroid cameras.
Instagram development began in San Francisco, when Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger chose to focus their multi-featured HTML5 check-in project Burbn on mobile photography.
