Many already know what Instgram is but for the uninitiated, let me explain. Instagram is a photo and video sharing social media platform. It is an app that you use with your smartphone or tablet to capture life’s wonderful moments, funny videos (15 seconds or less), promotional shots or clever pictures. You take the picture/video upload it and share it on Instagram immediately.
The personal profile pages always has a collage of pictures or videos that have been uploaded (hence the different views – above & below).
You can have a private or public profile. If it is private, only people that you have accepted as followers can see your pictures. If it is public, anyone can search and see your pictures but only followers will automatically get your feed. You can also use # hashtags to track popular topics; tag others using the @sign (when you share it on Twitter, you can tag with the person’s twitter handle); and you also have the ability to like a pic or to comment on it.
Instagram introduced the capability to create videos after Vine became very popular with their six second video clips. It is pretty easy to join Instagram and download the FREE app to your smartphone or tablet. Instagram does NOT work on a laptop (other then to view content). In other words, you cannot Instagram an image from a file on your computer.
