There was the world before Instagram. People did take pictures, and they did share them with their friends and families every once in a while. But since the introduction of the app back in 2010, with its snazzy filters and easy sharing options, soon we all became addicted to not only post pictures of our special moments, but to share every single detail of our lives—as irrelevant as it could be—, from a casual selfie to a cute doggie, to a pretty sunset, to a hipster food snap.
Instagram did not introduce the wonders of photo taking, but it certainly revolutionized the way we share them and enjoy them. Want to learn more about Instagram? Check out this new report from Website Builder.

Not for nothing, it is used by millions of men and women from every corner of the world, numerous celebrities and public figures from Hollywood and even the White House, and let’s not forget about the many well-known brands like Nike and Nat Geo that think of Instagram as a spectacular marketing tool.
