The Founder Of Instagram
The photo-sharing and later on video-sharing, social media sites company's development began when the creators preferred to concentrate their multi-featured HTML5 check-in task, Burbn, on mobile digital photography.

The name Instagram is derived from the words "instantaneous electronic camera" and also "telegram". Their iOS application was formally launched with Apple's Application Store on October 6th, 2010 as well as later to Android on April 3rd, 2012 through Google Play (a.k.a. Android Market).
