Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced the acquisition in a post on his Facebook Timeline.
  6. 6. Facebook & InstagramA lot of people are wondering why a 15-month-oldphoto-sharing app is worth so much money.But the real value is the community Instagramcreated in such a short time. It‟s now one of thelargest social networks with more than 30 millionregistered users. More than 1 billion photos havebeen downloaded, or about 5 million per day. Theamount of engagement is impressive too: the photosgenerated more than 575 “likes” on Facebook persecond, and more than 81 comments.
  7. 7. Facebook & Instagram Here is an excerpt from Mark‟s blog post: “This is an important milestone for Facebook because it‟s the first time we‟ve ever acquired a product and company with so many users. We don‟t plan on doing many more of these, if any at all. But providing the best photo sharing experience is one reason why so many people love Facebook and we knew it would be worth bringing these two companies together”
  8. 8. Welcome So you‟ve downloaded the Instagram app for your iPhone from the app store, now what? So let‟s assume you do not have an account on Instagram and are opening it for the first time. This is what you will see:
  9. 9. Signup & LoginAs you may have noticed at thebottom of the last screenshot youhave the option to Signup or Login.When signing up you will only beasked for the basics- nice andsimple.You will also be prompted to importcontacts or find friends fromcontacts, Facebook or Twitter.Additionally Instagram will suggestpeople to follow.
  10. 10. Feed Now that you‟ve signed up and logged in, you will be brought to your „Feed‟. Your Feed is all the recent activity of those you follow. A post consists of: the person‟s photo, name, the post itself and the likes and comments it receives.
  11. 11. Popular Next to Feed on the bottom navigation is „Popular‟. As you would guess, this page is full of popular photos on Instagram right now. 25 of them to be exact. You can refresh this page by clicking the refresh button in the top right hand corner.
  12. 12. Share The big button on the bottom in the center is the Share button. This is how you go about sharing your photos with the Instagram world. You can choose to share a photo taken at that moment in time or you can choose one from your Camera-roll. The button to take a photo is pretty self-explanitory and placed right in the center at the bottom. To pick one from your photos click the bottom left button that looks like two overlapping squares. The eye icon on the bottom right brings up your filters.
  13. 13. Share The top buttons are more customizable options. Add a border around your photo. Flash on/off toggle. Flip between the two camera lenses on your iPhone. Tilt Shift- This adds blur to certain areas of your photo. The options here are linear and radial. After you take the photo you can tap or drag to define the area. Lastly- this cancel‟s your upload
  14. 14. Filters One of the great features of Instagram is the ability to use filters. Here are the filters that are available to you. Your best bet would be to check each one of these out with your own photo‟s and see how they look. Currently you can only add one filter to each photo but we found an article explaining how to add multiple filters to one photo- how cool!
  15. 15. News Once you‟ve uploaded your photo it will bring it up on your feed and the feed of those who follow you. Your feedback on the photo can be tracked through the News button on the bottom navigation along with any new followers and the time that has elapsed since the event. You can switch between your own news and the news of those you are following at the top. This page can be refreshed by hitting the refresh button on the top right.
  16. 16. ProfileThe last button on the bottom navigation is your Profile. Here you can find friends,search Instagram, view your photos, photos you‟ve liked and edit your profile.
  17. 17. Profile If you click Your Photos you will be brought to the page people see when they click your user name. It shows your profile photo, a count of all your photos uploaded, how many followers you have and how many you are following. You can click the followers and following buttons for a list of each. You can also toggle your view at the top of the screen. You can view grid style photos or larger photos that you will have to scroll through individually.
