This page is under construction!
Well, yeah, a wiki page is always under construction, but this page is really not ready yet.
What you see here shouldn't be considered an official ArchiveTeam page with official ArchiveTeam content. Both the content and the style may be under construction or debate.
Come back later, or if you have something to add or note, use the talk page or the IRC.

Instagram is a photo sharing website which has been around since its first appearance on the iOS App Store in October 2010. It has been owned by Facebook since 2012, but Facebook's influence on the platform had been mostly unremarkable until recent years. Although it started off allowing just image posts, it has since added the ability to share video clips in posts and as part of "Reels", and also allows live-streaming similar to what one can find on YouTube or Twitch. It also allows the creation of "Stories" that disappear after 24 hours, no doubt inspired by the functionality of self-deleting apps like Snapchat, which no doubt inspired YouTube and Twitter to then copy the copied concept with its own "Stories" and "Fleets", respectively.
They got rid of Photo Maps in September 2016.
