Instagram, also known as IG, is a photo and video-sharing social networking service. It was founded by Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger on October 6, 2010, and is headquartered in Menlo Park, California. Its community allows users to upload photos and videos, fplow other users’ feeds, and tag content with hashtags.
On June 21, 2012, Instagram announced it had reached one million registered users,which increased to two million in 2013. By November 2013, its user base had grown to thirty million, and it could be accessed from a wide range of mobile devices, including Android cell phones. In April 2014, Instagram Stories was launched, a feature which lets users upload photos and videos from their life that disappear after 24 hours. The media interest from the launch of the feature resulted in the network reaching one billion active users in September 2014. In October 2015, Instagram Stories reached 200 million active users. In April 2016, Instagram launched two more features. “Shop Now”, which allows shopping through photos and videos from select retailers, and “Explore”, a feed of popular content from a variety of categories. In September 2016, Instagram secured an additional $50 million in funding from venture capital firm Sequoia Capital for a total funding amount of $500 million.
In November 2016, Instagram released Boomerang, a feature allowing users to share videos that play backwards and forwards. The app also added support for other languages such as Arabic, Danish, Dutch, Hungarian, Malay and Vietnamese.
On August 2, 2017, Instagram announced that it would allow advertisers to buy “Instagram TV” advertising to promote videos that play on Instagram’s vertical video format. The move marked an evpution for the platform as it attempts to further emulate the commercial appeal of television. This ad format would allow for longer form videos as well as other interactive elements such as stickers and ppls. The company stated that four percent of videos shared on the platform were posted in the vertically oriented 16:9 ratio – indicating that about 20 million posts on Instagram were made in that format – making up around eighty percent of the video views on the service. The update also included improvements to video sharing and Story features. users can now use multiple filters when editing a photo or video before posting it; vertical videos not set to “private” will appear full screen; and users can now use Instagram’s Boomerang feature to create looping video clips.
According to Forbes magazine’s list of top social media influencers in 2015, there are more than 80 million Instagram users who have a stronger influence on buying decisions than any other social network. As a result, a lot of brands have seen a rise in popularity because of the growing number of people using Instagram as a way to connect with other people. Many businesses have been using this opportunity to have their brand promoted by using the hashtag #ad or #sponsored. In addition, many businesses have been using this as a way to create a relationship between them and their customers as well as going viral. One example is a campaign by Sony where they created an instagram account called @sony_camera_gram. They take pictures taken by different customers and post them on their instagram account. They also encourage people to tag themselves in the picture. This allows people to connect with other customers and create a relationship between Sony and their customer base.
In addition to creating a relationship between them and their customers as well as going viral, many businesses have been using this as a way to increase sales by posting pictures of their products on instagram. Instagram has also been used as a way to advertise deals and promos which help businesses get more customers to visit their stores. For example, McDonald’s Malaysia has used instagram as an advertising channel through product placement and deals. They posted pictures of their food and drinks on instagram and asked people to tag themselves in those pictures. This allowed them to gain more exposure towards their customers as well as letting people know about their deals. Other companies such as Domino has used instagram ads which targets specific groups such as teenagers. They use targeted ads such as student deals which helps them attract potential customers as well as getting more traffic into their stores.
