I bet most of you know what Instagram is. Most of you must have the application on your own smartphone, don’t you? So, what is Instagram? As I adapted from Wikipedia, Instagram is an online mobile photo-sharing, video-sharing, and social networking service that enables its users to take pictures and videos, and share them on a variety of social networking platforms, such as Facebook,Twitter, Tumblr, and Flickr.
Originally, a distinctive feature was that it confined photos to a square shape, similar to Kodak Instamatic and Polaroid images, in contrast to the 4:3 aspect ratio typically used by mobile device cameras. In August 2015, version 7.5 was released, allowing users to post photos captured in any aspect ratio. Users can also apply digital filters to their images. The maximum duration for Instagram videos is 15 seconds.
So, if you got the application on your smartphone, how many followers have you got? 50 followers? 100 followers? 1000 followers? Or 5000 followers like I did. ( Follow my Instagram @MirwanChoky ).
