Not too long ago Instagram was just your regular über-popular photo app that was only on iOS. Nowadays the infamous platform is a daily event in millions of people's lives. After evolving from a simple photo filter app it took on a myriad of features to add a more social aspect to sharing your photos--quickly emerging as one of the top social networks among young and old alike.

Initially Instagram's main function revolved around embellishing your photos with a series of filters and unique frames like: XPro-II, Earlybird, Lo-fi, Sutro, Toaster, Brannan, Inkwell, Walden, Hefe, Nashville or 1977. But now, Instagram has scooped up features that originated on Snapchat; including facial filters (masks), live-streaming video, stories and the new release of IGTV.

Despite its many attributes, Instagram's ubiquitousness truly lies in its capacity to cause interaction among users who are endlessly supplied with heaps of the best videos, pictures, and moments on the internet. Easily find content relating to any of your interests by running a quick search, and tag your posts to make them more visible by adding hashtags. Now you can experience a different view of the world from a more local perspective, and instantly glance at other users' snapshots no matter where they're located.

You can also plug in your Instagram account to any other of your favorite social networks like: Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr or Foursquare simply by tapping on the social share button.

Obviously for many users, Instagram will always be a simple photo sharing app at heart. But it's also a new way to express yourself and explore the world, while keeping in close contact with people you care about and those who you share common ground with. For others, it'll continue providing hours of trendsetting activities for them to pursue.
