On October 28, 2010, Instagram was featured as App of the Week. Today, more than 130 million people use Instagram, generating 1 billion 'Likes' everyday.
What Instagram brought to the table was a way for people to easily snap a picture, add a simple filter, then share it with other amateur smartphone photographers everywhere. Since the initial launch, it's added small features to streamline the process and, more recently, added 15-second videos to keep people interested in sharing their work. There are hundreds of copycat apps, but Instagram was the one that really got the image-sharing revolution on its way.
