Instagram – The Biggest Rage in Photo Social Networking

Instagram is one of the most popular apps for photo social networking, available with Facebook account integration to share pictures. It started with basic features of sharing pictures and now has evolved to be one of the global leaders in the application industry.

Instagram was then used to share memories in the form of pictures and is still used for the same but adding on to the list of the features is now another feature which is videos. You can now also post videos and make your sharing experience better than ever before. Different people use Instagram for different reasons – for branding, for expression and some even for the pleasure of regular social networking.

How does Instagram work?

Well speaking about the functionality of Instagram and how it works there’s nothing too complex, but let me explain to you in a few simple steps how it works and how you can make the best out of your Instagram account.

  • You will first have to download the application which I will discuss later in this article.
    Ensure that your Facebook account is logged in into the phone which you have used to download the Instagram application.
    Once you have downloaded the application, you will have to open it and wait for a while till it gets initialized
    Following to the initialization is a screen which will appear with an option called log in with Facebook.
    You have already got your Facebook logged in the phone you are using, now click on the option.
    Once you have clicked on login with Facebook, Instagram fetches the basic information what it needs to create your profile automatically from Facebook
    And then your profile is Instantly created.
    Your profile is created! Now, what? Once it is done, you will have options to edit your profile and make it look more interesting. You can add or delete any information you want to. Start adding pictures and getting followers to kick start your Instagram profile! Remember, it is very important to have a catchy Instagram username to build a strong Instant presence and a following.
