What is Instagram?
Instagram is a picture-based social network and photo-sharing app for iOS and Android that works a lot like Twitter - just with photos instead of words. When you follow your friends or people whose photographs you like, their pictures will come up in a news feed, along with any description they've given it. You are then able to like it or comment on it.
The other side to it is, obviously, for you to take your own photos and post them online to gain followers. The best bit about it all is the great filters there are to choose from to make your normal looking phone snaps look like mini works of art.
Of course, you may have heard it was also bought by Facebook at the beginning of the week for a whopping $1 billion, so it's certainly something to take notice of. If you haven't tried it out yet, read on for how to get started, and for those of you that have, we've got some tips and tricks for you too.
