History of Instagram
In 2010, Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger were working on a mobile check-in app named Burbn. But they were not the only ones. They soon realized that Foursquare was very similar and more popular. Photo-sharing had been a trendy feature among Burbn users. So they decided to focus on that instead. They renamed the app Instagram. The name is a combination of ‘instant camera’ and ‘telegram.’
The first Instagram post was posted on 16 July 2010. Initially, the app was only released for iOS. In 2012 they also released an Android version. Facebook purchased the company in the same year. They reportedly paid $1 billion in cash and stock. That is when Instagram’s popularity really took off.
Over the years they added several new features. In 2013, they added 15-second video sharing to the platform. That was so popular that in 2016 they increased the limit to 60 seconds per video. In 2016 they also launched Instagram Stories. A feature similar to Snapchat. It allows users to add photos to their stories that will automatically delete after 24 hours. In 2018, they launched IGTV, a vertical video application that allows uploads of up to 10 minutes.
Direct messaging, video calling, and in-app purchases have also been added. Turning the app into a social media platform instead of just a photo-sharing app. In 2020, they added Reels to the app. A feature similar to TikTok. Users can record short videos set to pre-existing sound clips from other posts.
