Instagram, Photo Sharing App

Someone who has Facebook or Twitter account is just an ordinary case. Because what you share only words. Another social network bought by Facebook is different than others. Not words to be shared, but photo, the best angle shot will be the most popular photo ever in this social network. In this case we talk about Instagram. What do you think when the first time you hear about Instagram? This is not one of unit mass. This is a photo sharing social network.


The name of Instagram based on two words, “insta” come from word “instan” that mean simple and “gram” come from “telegram” that mean sharing. How photo will be shared is the aim of Instagram. Nowadays we don’t need a telegram to share something like photo or something else. Internet is the best choice, the fastest and the most efficient way to share. In April 9th 2012, it was announced that Instagram will belong to Facebook for approximately $1 billion in cash and stock.

I used Blackmart Alpha and I downloaded it properly and installation progress as well.
