Instagram is a mobile, desktop, and internet-based photo-sharing application and service that allows users to share pictures and videos either publicly or privately. It was created by Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger, and launched in October 2010 as a free mobile app exclusively for the iOS operating system. A version for Android devices was released two years later, in April 2012, followed by a feature-limited website interface in November 2012, and apps for Windows 10 Mobile and Windows 10 in April 2016 and October 2016 respectively.
Instagram lets registered users upload photos or videos to the service. Users can apply various digital filters to their images, and add locations through geotags. They can add hashtags to their posts, linking the photos up to other content on Instagram featuring the same subject or overall topic. Users can connect their Instagram account to other social media profiles, enabling them to share photos to those profiles as well. Originally, a distinctive feature of Instagram was its confining of photos to a square; this was changed in August 2015, when an update started allowing users to upload media at full size. In June 2012, an "Explore" tab was introduced in the mobile apps, showing users a variety of media, including (but not limited to) popular photos and photos taken at nearby locations, trending tags and places, channels for recommended videos, and curated content. Support for videos was originally launched in June 2013, and had a 15-second maximum duration and limited quality, with Instagram later adding support for widescreen and longer videos. Private messaging, called Instagram Direct, was launched with basic photo-sharing functionality in December 2013, and has gradually received major updates incorporating more features. Updates include easier private sharing from the news feed, threaded conversations, sharing locations and hashtag pages, increased support for text and emoji, and the ability to make photos "disappear" after being viewed by the recipient. In August 2016, Instagram introduced a "Stories" feature, letting users add photos to a story, with the content disappearing after 24 hours. Instagram added live-video functionality to Stories in November 2016, and augmented reality stickers in April 2017.

Instagram began development in San Francisco, when Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger chose to focus their multi-featured HTML5 check-in project, Burbn, on mobile photography. As Krieger reasoned, Burbn became too similar to Foursquare, and both realized that it had gone too far. Burbn was then pivoted to become more focused on photo-sharing.

The word Instagram is a portmanteau of instant camera and telegram.

On March 5, 2010, Systrom closed a $500,000 seed funding round with Baseline Ventures and Andreessen Horowitz while working on Burbn.

Josh Riedel joined the company in October as Community Manager,
[10]
Shayne Sweeney joined in November as an engineer,
[10]
and Jessica Zollman joined as a Community Evangelist in August 2011.

On October 6, 2010, the Instagram iOS app was officially released through the App Store.
[12]
[13]
In February 2011, it was reported that Instagram had raised $7 million in Series A funding from a variety of investors, including Benchmark Capital, Jack Dorsey, Chris Sacca (through Capital fund), and Adam D'Angelo.
[14]
The deal valued Instagram at around $20 million.
[15]
On April 3, 2012, Instagram was released for Android phones,
[16]
[17]
and it was downloaded more than one million times in less than one day.
[18]
In March 2012, The Wall Street Journal reported that Instagram was raising a new round of financing that would value the company at $500 million,
[19]
details that were confirmed the following month, when Instagram raised $50 million from venture capitalists with a $500 million valuation.
[20]
The same month, Facebook bought Instagram for $1 billion in cash and stock,
[21]
[22]
[23]
with a plan to keep the company independently managed.

Britain's Office of Fair Trading approved the deal on August 14, 2012,
[27]

The deal, which was made just prior to Facebook's scheduled IPO, cost about a quarter of Facebook's cash-on-hand, according to figures documented at the end of 2011.
[26]
The deal was for a company characterized as having "lots of buzz but no business model", and the price was contrasted with the $35 million Yahoo! paid for Flickr in 2005.
[26]
Mark Zuckerberg noted that Facebook was "committed to building and growing Instagram independently", in contrast to its past practices.
[26]
According to Wired, the deal netted Systrom $400 million based on his ownership stake in the business.
[30]
The exact purchase price was $300 million in cash and 23 million shares of stock.
[31]
In November 2012, Instagram launched website profiles, allowing anyone to see users' feeds from their web browsers. However, the website interface was limited in functionality, with notable omissions including the lack of a search bar, a news feed, and the ability to upload photos.
[32]
In February 2013, the website was updated to offer a news feed,
[33]
and in June 2015, the website was redesigned to offer bigger photos.
[34]
[35]
On October 22, 2013, during the Nokia World event held in Abu Dhabi, Systrom confirmed the upcoming release of the official Instagram app for Windows Phone,
[36]
after pressure from Nokia and the public to develop an app for the platform.
[37]
[38]
The app was released as a beta version on November 21, 2013, and was lacking the ability to record and upload video, though an Instagram spokesperson stated that "We're not finished, and our team will continue developing the Windows Phone app to keep releasing features and bringing you the best Instagram possible".
[39]
[40]
In April 2016, Instagram upgraded the app to Windows 10 Mobile, adding support for video and direct messages,
[41]
followed by later updates in October 2016 that extended the app to Windows 10 personal computers and tablets.
[42]
[43]
The Android app has received two major exclusive updates. The first, introduced in March 2014, cut the size of the app by half and added significant improvements to performance and responsiveness on a wide variety of Android devices.
