Technology has played a huge role in the way we communicate with one another, and social media is no exception. One of the most popular social media platforms today is Instagram, a site that allows its users to post photos or videos to the internet, as well as interact with other people through liking and commenting on their posts. Furthermore, users can apply various filters and emojis to their photos, amongst other things.
Users can upload photos or videos taken with a camera. Instagram uses a feature known as “Geo-tagging”, which uses the user’s location when taking a photo, to customize each post made by that user. Instagram users can apply various digital filters to their pictures, and add hashtags or texts to the picture. If the user chooses, they can associate an emoji with their post.
As of February 2018, over 1 billion active users were using Instagram.
