Who Invented Instagram
The photo-sharing and later on video-sharing, social media firm's development began when the owners decided to concentrate their multi-featured HTML5 check-in task, Burbn, on mobile photography.
The Brazilian business owner and software engineer Krieger recognized, Burbn ended up being also similar to Foursquare. Burbn was then rotated to become more concentrated on photo-sharing.
The name Instagram is derived from the words "instant cam" as well as "telegram". Their iphone application was officially launched through Apple's Application Shop on October 6th, 2010 and later to Android on April 3rd, 2012 with Google Play (a.k.a. Android Market).
