Instagram started off some years ago as an application with filters and effects to enhance images, allowing the users to share their pictures just like on a social network. It gradually got more and more successful until it was finally acquired by Facebook due to its potential and became a much more powerful communications channel than its developers had ever dreamed.
Nowadays, on Instagram, we can find all our favorite brands, football players, influencers and loads of other celebrities and famous people that share every single moment of their lives on the Internet to make their fans feel closer.
