This is a short list of our most frequently asked questions. For more information about Instagram, or if you
need support, please visit our support center.
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.
How much is your app?
$0.00 - available for free in the Apple App Store and Google Play store.
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?
How did the idea come about?
We love taking photos. We always assumed taking interesting photos required a big bulky camera and a couple
years of art school. But as mobile phone cameras got better and better, we decided to challenge that assumption.
We created Instagram to solve three simple problems:
Mobile photos always come out looking mediocre. Our awesome looking filters transform your photos
into professional-looking snapshots.
Sharing on multiple platforms is a pain - we help you take a picture once, then share it (instantly) on
Most uploading experiences are clumsy and take forever - we've optimized the experience to be fast
What other services are you compatible with?
Currently, you can share your photos on a photo-by-photo basis on Flickr, Facebook, and Twitter. Additionally,
if you specify a location with your photo, you can opt to have us check you in on Foursquare. Going forward,
we plan on supporting additional services but have nothing else to announce at this time.
Are you hiring?
Absolutely, yes. If you're a talented engineer or designer we want to talk to you. Check out our jobs page.
