Since its founding in 2010 Instagram has taken the world of social media by storm both is an incredibly popular image sharing site but also is one particularly relevant in popular culture even if you don't use Instagram yourself you felt its effect whether it's through the celebrities the site has helped create or the jokes and references the site of spawned from viral pets too expensive posts.


1.First photo

To start off the list we go back to the very start of Instagram almost eight years ago you know Instagram has been around for a while but do you know about some of the first content ever posted on there it really does seem like the founding members of social sites like animals because the first photo published on Instagram was of an adorable puppy the photo of the pooch has received over 80 thousand likes but the poster Instagram CEO and co-founder Kevin Systrom says that he regrets posting it as the first photo and that he wishes he had started the platform with a photo where he had tried a little harder system says the photo was taken at a taco stand in Mexico where the dog just happened to be giving him the opportunity to snap the now-famous photo it also uses a filter which is still on Instagram today which just goes to show you how much of a long and yet persistent history the platform has.


2. Selfie

 

We're going to delve way back into Instagrams rich history selfies today are as much a part of life on Instagram and the Internet at large as pictures of dogs or food the term selfie itself is actually surprisingly quite old and was first known to be said in 2002 on an online forum but the first photo to actually be tagged as a selfie on Instagram wasn't posted until nearly half a year after the platform's founding that's right in January of 2011 Jennifer Lee of San Francisco California became the first person on the entire platform to tag a photo as being a hashtag selfie even though the photo only has a little over a thousand likes it will forever go down in Instagram & even internet history as a milestone for what would become one of Instagram's most useful purposes sharing pictures of yourself while we're on the topic of selfies.

3. Numbers

 

Now that we mention all those users it's a good time to ask you ever feel like your post too much on Instagram no need to worry you're not alone in this regard the half a billion people who use Instagram daily have managed to post a grand total of 40 billion pictures in the history of the platform not much of a poster you're still contributing the like button on photos is hit 4.2 billion times on average daily but for those who do post the numbers will only continue to rise 95 million posts were made per day in 2017 and that number only continues to increase in the double digits every year it looks like you're not the only addict.

4. Addiction

 

We have some bad news for American viewers you're probably the most addicted of all though everyone in the world over uses Instagram a survey found that among Americans nearly 60% of users check Instagram nearly daily with a large part of that percentage using it multiple times in a day maybe it's an exaggeration to say that some people are attached to their phones but Americans seem to blow everyone else out of the water when it comes to excessive use maybe it's time to give looking at dog photos and taking selfies a short break.


5. Use by Earnings

 

It's time for a bit of a break from telling you that you're using Instagram too much maybe you are but that doesn't mean it can't have a positive message a study by an English statistics firm found that in the United States just about everyone seems to use Instagram not literally of course but no one seems to be left out the study tracked the percentage of people by income group who use Instagram regularly and found that the numbers are very close to each other across groups with both minimum-wage workers and six-figure workers using Instagram at a nearly equal rate on the internet sometimes it doesn't matter how much money you have it's all about the content.


6. Employees

You would think that with all their power and money Instagram would require tons of employees to keep such an utterly massive network together but when it was founded only two guys its founders were working on the project and by the time several years later when Facebook bought the company in early 2012 when the company was worth over a billion dollars still only thirteen people were employed to keep the growing platform running today Instagram as a company employs nearly 500 workers and Counting which just proves how far the company has gone since its founding.


7. Stories Copy

This time the embarrassed company is Instagram itself when insta first adopted photo stories in early 2017 many users were lightning-fast and pointing out how the feature felt as though it was copied directly from Snapchat and to their credit, Instagrams response hardly beat around the bush VP of the product on Instagram openly admitted that Instagram copied stories from Snapchat and went on to claim those good ideas in tech are meant to be shared but even after this explanation, Instagram had the egg on their face for their heavy-handed attempted imitation even if stories are now a regular part of the Instagram. experience.

8. Geotagging

 

One feature that's very common across almost every social media and tech platform is geotagging the ability to tell people where you are whenever you decide to post on Instagram the feature is a fun way to show your friends all the places you've decided to visit eBay on vacation or simply a trip to the Starbucks down the street but where you might wonder gets the most geotags in terms of location New York City is king by far having the most geotags of any city in the world but what about attractions in specific locations New York City is almost king Times Square is beaten out for the most geotag location on Earth by Disneyland in Anaheim California but New York California rivalry is strong wherever it comes up and Instagram is certainly no exception.


9. Best times to post

 

Have you ever posted what you thought was a great picture but it only wound up getting an embarrassingly low amount of likes forcing you to delete it fear no more in analyzing how corporate accounts might better time their posts the best times to post on Instagram based on the win that most people would be using it have been estimated on "Sunday and Wednesday 5 p.m". is the best time but from there things get weird you're gonna want to post it 7 and 10 p.m. on Mondays 3 a.m. and 10 a.m. on Tuesdays 7 a.m. and 11 p.m. on Thursdays 1 a.m. and 8 p.m. on Fridays and 12 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Saturdays sure it seems complicated but when you're out for exposure that's just the kind of thing you'd find yourself memorizing after long enough.


10. Spambots

Remember how we mentioned how many followers the Kardashians seem to have well don't get too jealous just yet not all of them are human no they're not aliens or dogs they're spambots a group of cybersecurity researchers did a sweeping study in 2015 and found that a whopping 24 million accounts are almost definitely spambots and the number is likely even higher now celebrities and influencers will commonly buy spam followers who can be identified by nonsensical posting your following habits to make their account appear more influential than it really is whenever Instagram attempts to ban a large amount of these spam accounts celebrities like Justin Bieber will lose millions of followers at a time still even if you don't buy these bots they might just follow you anyway many are programmed to follow simply based on who's posting in certain hashtags.
