How the World's Most Popular Photography App Started: The Origins of Instagram

As social media platforms go, Instagram is one of the most popular apps in the world. To see how this app went from humble beginnings to what is it today really puts into perspective how much of an impact it has had on the industry and the world at large. 

In his latest video, Dagogo Altraide from ColdFusion discusses the origins of Instagram. Altraide regularly produces high-quality videos that are packed with lots of useful information. If you haven't already, I highly recommend that you subscribe to his channel. 

This latest video dives into the beginning of Instagram and how it started from being an app called "Burbn." Today, many of us know and probably use Instagram regularly. Of course, the app does have its darker side, with issues relating to mental health. This is why Instagram has been removing certain features from the app, such as the likes counter.

Nonetheless, it's difficult to argue against the fact that Instagram has had a huge impact on the world. From individuals to huge multinational corporations, Instagram seems to have a page for almost everyone. 

Check out the full video linked above to see just how the app started.

And then Facebook bought it, promised them that they wouldn't combine websites but then started to screw it up with the same crap that ruined Facebook and that's when the main founders bailed. It's gotten worse every day since because the main guy behind Zuckerberg stole everything he created and has no clue what he's doing. End of story.

I hate it, but I have to use it to survive. Nobody goes to blogs anymore.
