The social media platform Instagram (Instagram) will complete its ten years on October 6. This amazing social networking platform for photo sharing was launched in 2010 by two US entrepreneurs and programmers Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger.
Two years after the launch of Instagram, Facebook bought it. After this, Instagram became the first social media app in the world where users started sharing new experiences with their selfies and photos.
Followers' base for celebs
There are many users on Instagram who have millions of followers. Fashion blogger Chiara Fergani has 21 million followers on Instagram. At the same time, Hollywood actresses Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner have 189 million followers. If seen, Instagram is like a self-made photo album for the people.
Michael Stora, a psychologist and president of the French Research Collective Observatory of Digital Worlds in Humanities (OMNSH), said, 'We have now entered the Internet age where anyone can easily present themselves on a large scale.'
Instagram is the first choice for branded companies
The selfie of millions of users posted on Instagram is shining overnight by the sight of a brand. Let us know that one of the top selfies of the 2014 Oscars, Ellen DeGeneres, Jennifer Lawrence and Brad Pitt's selfie were selected for Samsung's smartphone.
Instagram is the first choice for luxury brand companies around the world. Because according to branded companies, Instagram proves to be a launching platform for their products.
Last year, Instagram has given virtual products to their products as an e-commerce site where users can shop for their favorite things without exiting the app.
A 36-year-old Instagram fashion influencer, Pauline Prevez, said, 'The company posts the product and I spread it around, so now there is no need for an ad agency, in this we are able to take care of everything closely.'
Instagram has revolutionized the food sector. Because with its help, many options have been opened in front of people about restaurants and their many types of recipes.
Big restaurants are proving successful in attracting people with their new recipes with the help of Instagram. Not only this, but people can also book their lunch and dinner tables in any hotel and restaurant through Instagram.
Along with this, users also get to see recipes of big chefs on this platform. At the same time, Chef Jamie Oliver has 8.3 million followers and offers a variety of recipes on his Instagram page daily.
Although many people are earning lakhs and crores of rupees with the help of Instagram, but there are also some who are doing the simple task of sending the right messages to the people.
One of them is Sylvan Havovny, also known as Dr. Shawa Vet. He has one lakh followers on Instagram. Shawa Weight posts pictures of small places around the world that people don't even know about. In addition, he also shares pictures of thousands of animals on his page.
Psychologist Stora says, 'The new things on Instagram have made people addicted to it and it has had a governmental effect on many, especially among the youth, different energy is seen about this platform.'
