Teens all over the globe are discovering Instagram, an iPhone app that allows users to take, share, and comment on photos. It all started in 2010 when the program was launched into Apple’s App store. From celebrities to young teens, the Instagram community is packed with all sorts of users. Here are a few reasons why the application has become so popular among teens today.
Photography- Instagram not only allows the sharing of photos, but it has also become a very popular way for teens to take pictures. With the Instagram app, pictures taken on the iPhone get a more “artsy” look to them, and add something more to the otherwise average pictures. Many teens can’t get enough of the app because it brings an every day photo to a whole new level.
Celebrities- From Justin Bieber to the Karadashian sisters, Instagram is filled with some of today’s most popular celebrities. And, with just one simple click of a button, users can follow their favorite movie stars and artists. Every time that celebrity posts a picture onto the site, their fans are able to “like” and comment on the photo. This is very appealing to teens because it gives them a kind of communication with the celebrities they usually can only see on the big screen or hear in their favorite songs.
