What Is Instagram?

instagram logo

Instagram, a free social media photo-sharing network, allows users to take photos and easily apply their choice of digital filters to them. They can then share the photos with other Instagram users, as well as other social media networks, such as Facebook, and also via email. The enhanced photos can even be saved as a personal photo to showcase your photo skills! MyWinston-Salem has now joined Instagram as @MyWinstonSalem! And don’t worry, this app is FREE so you will not have to drop a dime for this holiday gift to yourself and your family!

Breaking Records

Did you know that on Thanksgiving Day 2012, Instagram posts broke all records? With an average of 200 photo posts per second, people proudly shared their Memaw’s pumpkin pie and other Turkey Day festivities, posting over 10 million photos that mentioned Thanksgiving-related words in their captions. I’m a guilty Thanksgiving Day poster myself. Chances are, Christmas 2012 festivities will come close, if not surpass those records.
