Lurking on Instagram can be a gut-wrenching experience for anyone battling an eating disorder, considering how many of us take endless photos of our breakfasts, lunches, snacks, and dinners. For Swedish 18-year-old Antonia Eriksson, Instagram is where her journey began when she was admitted into a hospital for anorexia not more than 15 months ago.
"So I don't know for sure yet, but tomorrow I'm probably being put in hospital for my eating disorder," Eriksson wrote on her first Instagram photo. "I just can't fight it on my own anymore and it's gotten really serious and out of hand. I'm anyway considering starting a blog so I can write about my life and my disorder in a better way, what do you think?"… Read more
InstaLomo HD for Instagram isn't a bad photo editor by any means, but it doesn't have enough filters or features to beat out countless other options. It's prone to glitches and slower performance, as well. There's just not much here to pull you away from your current photo filtering app of choice.
Though this app references Instagram, it's not connected to it at all. This means that while you don't have to log in, you don't get any of the polished Instagram features, either. Instead, you'll get a handful of Instagram-esque photo … Read more
Twitter has a major Instagram problem, based on the latest findings from a new survey from the Pew Research Center's Internet Project.
The older social network for sharing 140-character updates is neck-and-neck with the Facebook-owned photo application when it comes to their respective audiences. Pew found that 18 percent of online adults now use Twitter, while 17 percent of online adults now use Instagram, and both applications have nearly identical audiences.
"Twitter and Instagram have particular appeal to younger adults, urban dwellers, and non-whites. And there is substantial overlap between Twitter and Instagram user bases," Pew concluded … Read more
Action Grid for Instagram does a neat job of making collages, but mediocre layout and limited customization hinder the app's overall appeal. There just aren't enough ways to tweak the grid the app creates for you. The app is worth trying, but you might be better off with a more traditional collage-making app.
Though this app mentions Instagram, it's not really connected to that app at all. Instead, the app lets you record two to nine seconds of footage and then pick nine different still images to turn into a 3X3 grid collage. When you're recording, … Read more
It was only a matter of time before Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, R2-D2, and the rest of the gang from a galaxy far, far away invaded Tumblr. While beloved "Star Wars" characters have shown up in millions of memes, animated GIFs, and probably quite a few fan fiction entries on the popular blogging site, this week marks Vader's official presence thanks to Lucasfilm and Disney Interactive.
Instagram's "magazine-like" ads are totally double-tap worthy -- at least that's the message the Facebook-owned entity is telling everyone.
Thursday, Instagram shared results from its first four ad campaigns and touted that early guinea pigs like Levi's and Ben & Jerry's reached more than 7 million people in the US in just over a week with their sponsored photos.
Most of Instagram's revelations are cloaked in advertising jargon, making them hard to unravel. The company said, for instance, that across the four campaigns there was a 32-point incremental lift in ad recall per … Read more

When the daughter of British rock star Bob Geldof took a photo of herself and her son Astala, a ghostly interloper seemed to get in on the act.
An unexplainable image of a mysterious hand appeared on socialite Peaches Geldof's shoulder when she took the photo of herself and her son in the bath. When she posted the photo on Instagram she wrote:
"Close up shot of the mystery ghost hand in pic I took of Astala and me in the bath!! And no that isn't my hand -- one of mine was round his waist to hold him during the photo, the other holding the camera to take the shot. Also the hand is around my shoulder so totally weird angle if I did it myself!! How terrifying!!" … Read more
I am blue in the face.
But it doesn't matter how many times you tell people -- especially criminals -- to be very careful about what they post on social networks. They don't listen.
Here is the story of Depree Johnson. He's 19, and he's already been in a little trouble.
However, he's now in 142 times more trouble, all because he couldn't help posting Instagram images of himself with those twins of modern despair: guns and money. (Johnson's Instagram account -- duce22ceritfied (sic) -- has now been shut down.)… Read more
