What is Instagram?

”Instagram is a free photo and video sharing app to which people can upload photos or videos, and share them with their followers or with a select group of friends. They can also view, comment and like posts shared by their friends on Instagram.” – Instagram

Instagram is a photo-based social media network that’s been exploding in popularity for the last few years. It was launched in 2010, bought by Facebook two years later and has become one of the top social sharing platforms.

Instagram is a mobile sharing service. Users only post from mobile devices, and most users access it on a phone.

More than 52 million images are posted by some 800 million plus users every day.

What’s an Instagram Story vs. Instagram Post?

Instagram has two primary types of ways to share content – via story or post.

An Instagram Post is the original type of content and includes an image (or video), caption and options hashtags. Users can tag other users as well. Native posts do not include the ability to link to outside content.

Instagram Stories are the newer format and growing in popularity. Stories allow users to share multiple photos and videos in a slideshow format. Stories appear at the top of the main feed.

Most Instagrammers publish a combination of stories and posts.

What’s an Instagram Template?

An Instagram template is a kit of pre-made designs to help you share different types of content to the social platform in a visually consistent manner. A template can be a helpful tool for a brand manager or marketer looking to create a visual identity and theme on the social network.

A solid Instagram template can help a non-designer (and designers, too) create promotions quickly.

A template can include locations to add images and graphics with text, infographics, backgrounds, and other visual elements.
