What is Instagram?
Instagram is a fun and quirky way to share your life with friends through a series of pictures.
Snap a photo with your mobile phone, then choose a filter to transform the image into a memory to
keep around forever. We're building Instagram to allow you to experience moments in your friends' lives
through pictures as they happen. We imagine a world more connected through photos.

Where does the name come from?
When we were kids we loved playing around with cameras. We loved how different types of old cameras marketed themselves as "instant" - something we take for granted today. We also felt that the snapshots people were taking were kind of like telegrams in that they got sent over the wire to others - so we figured why not combine the two?
