Social Media: Instagram

Instagram is an online photo-sharing, video-sharing and social networking service. The real advantage of publishing on instagram is immediacy. You can get an immediate audience for your work. Plain and simple. If you're a skilled photographer you can generate a fair sized audience in a short time. This lets you put quick creative energy into photos and get them out to people in seconds.

It not only enables its users to take pictures and videos, but also to apply digital filters to them, and share them on a variety of social networking services, such as Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Flickr.

A distinctive feature of Instagram is that it confines photos to a square shape, similar to those produced by the 'instant' cameras of old - the Kodak Instamatic and Polaroid Camera. The square shape is in contrast to the 4:3 aspect ratio typically used by mobile device cameras.

Users are also able to record and share short videos - only up to 15 seconds in length.
