Instagram is one of the very popular social media platforms that people use nowadays as it lets its users do more than take and share photos and videos. Unlike Facebook and  Twitter, Instagram makes sure that your photos are the center of attention with its simple and straightforward interface. It also features different filters and effects that users can use to improve their photos.

Express yourself better

When Instagram first came to be, users were able to enjoy the basic functions that were limited to a few but were nonetheless enjoyable. These included taking and editing photos by applying the app’s featured filters, which could change the color and overall feel of the pictures. Some filters even come with frames. Basic photo editing was also made possible and users were able to adjust the brightness, contrast, sharpness, and other photo elements until they are satisfied. Now, as time passes, lots of improvements are made to upgrade Instagram and make it a timeless photo-sharing platform. Of course, you can still take pictures and videos, add customized filters, and share posts not only on your Instagram feed but as well as on your other social media accounts like Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare, and Tumblr. What makes Instagram’s latest version infinitely better than before is that users can now better express themselves.

The functions are no longer limited to posting, sharing, liking, and commenting on photos and videos. Instagram is now also capable of showing daily and by-the-minute updates through stories, which can either be a photo, video, or a simple text poster. The app also took in face filters and added it to their fat list of features. There are other special effects that users can enjoy when posting stories such as dramatic zoom-ins, geo-tags, and background music. Instagram may not have the same noisy feed that Twitter and Facebook have but expressing yourself through your photos and videos is also a great way for you to share your thoughts, hobbies, and other interests with others.

Discover and explore

As mentioned, while it is not the perfect tool for expressing yourself through words, Instagram still has a Facebook-style feed, where you can view all the uploaded media both from your own personal photo collection and the people you follow. It is a great way to get acquainted with other users’ interests, which might also help you develop a passion in new things. With that said, Instagram is equipped with an Explore feature where you can find posts and stories that are somehow related to your own interests. The content you will find in this tab are based on your commonly liked posts. However, if you have a specific idea in mind, you can always just look it up using the search bar. The results are sorted according to Instagram users, tagged places, and hashtags used in the post to make it easier for you to find what you are looking for, whether it is the profile of a famous actor, a good vacation spot for the coming holidays, or delicious and mouth-watering desserts. 

Forming intimate connections

Aside from posting and sharing photos on your timeline for people to see, Instagram also lets you send private messages with fellow users. It basically has a chat app as well a place where you can share posts to specific people only and exchange text messages with them. Additionally, you can react to their messages by liking them so they would know that their sentiments are greatly appreciated. 

Another feature that has been recently added to the Instagram new version is being able to choose who will be able to see your uploaded stories. Aside from simply hiding them from specific users, you can create a group of close friends. This way, when uploading stories, you can just select the “close friends” option and your post will automatically stay exclusive within that chosen group of users. 

Instagram TV

Instagram TV is the very latest installment of Instagram. This section works just like YouTube except it specializes on featuring vertical or portrait videos. Instagram also lets its users upload videos of longer length compared to the 1-minute limit of regular timeline posts and 15-second limit of Instagram stories. With Instagram TV (IGTV), users are allowed to upload videos with a minimum of 15 seconds and a maximum of 10 minutes. It is dedicated completely to lengthy vertical videos that you cannot upload as a story or a regular post. This is actually another really good way to be able to share more of your interests to your followers and other users. IGTV is often used by influencers, famous celebrities, and travel bloggers. Of course, whatever you want to do with your channel is completely up to you.

Experience Instagram

Instagram is an app that has a lot to offer besides posting and sharing. Many artists use this social media site as a portfolio or tool where they could influence and inspire others through images. A picture is worth more than a thousand words and Instagram’s basic function as photo-sharing platform is a testament to this. By letting you apply filters and do simple adjustments to your pictures, Instagram is allowing you to add your own personal touches. You can create and share wonderful content, discover the simple pleasures in life, and preserve unforgettable memories through your uploaded photos and clips.
