You might have heard of Instagram amongst the melee of other social media names like Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Foursquare, Tumblr and Pinterest – to name a few.

In popularity terms Instagram is right up there because, whereas Facebook basically shares words you can add photos to, Instagram shares photos you can add words to. Confused? Don’t be...

Instagram is all about photos – either ones you take while using it or choose from your library – and it lets you add a range of fun effects, then caption them and share them with your friends. You can share with friends just within the Instagram ‘universe’ or have Instagram also post your photos to your Facebook, Twitter and/or other social media accounts.

Why would you use Instagram and not just post a photo directly on Facebook? 

Well, because the subject of an Instagram post is always a photo it’s usually far more interesting to your friends and family than just words. Plus, the range of fun effects let’s you enhance the look/feel/mood of the image if you want to. Importantly, the Instagram app is far less complex than the Facebook app and you can still Like and Comment on other Instagram friends’ photos.

Simple to setup and use, Instagram is available for Apple and Android devices and might just be the social media sharing solution you’re looking for if you want it to be fun without becoming overwhelming. Try it!
