Instagram App is a popular social media platform that allows users to share photos and videos with their followers. It was created by Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger and launched in October 2010. In 2012,

Instagram allows users to create an account, follow other users, and be followed by others. Users can post photos and videos to their profile, add captions, apply filters, and tag other users. They can also use hashtags to categorize their posts and make them more discoverable. Additionally, Instagram offers various editing tools and features like Stories, IGTV (Instagram TV), and Reels.

Instagram has a “feed” where users can view posts from the accounts they follow. They can like, comment on, and share posts. Instagram also has a explore page that suggests content based on the user’s interests and the accounts they follow.

Instagram: What Are the Risks?

If a user’s profile is set to public – it means that the pictures or videos created and shared using the app can be seen by anyone. We don’t need to outline to you the obvious privacy issues that this raises. See how to make posts private at the end of this article. With an increase in new features such as Instagram Questions, the risk is that they will be used negatively and to cyberbully other users. If you experience cyberbullying, screenshot the messages, block the bully and report them.

Like many other social networking sites, Instagram also has age limits, albeit ones which are difficult to enforce.

Instagram: What Are the Benefits?

As with many of the most popular social networking websites, while there are risks, there are also benefits. Instagram is all about encouraging creative originality. Indeed, Instagram is probably among the reasons behind the resurgence in the popularity of photography. The app allows its young users to share their lives in quirky, filtered photographs, hashtags or short video clips and has certainly been put to good use by the majority of its users.

Young people also like the fact that they can follow famous people or influencers on the app, keep up-to-date with new businesses, news and with friends.
