What Instagram achieved is simply amazing. They are the living proof that a simple social media website can connect more than 400 million users on a single platform. Imagine that everything started with a mobile network that allowed you to add filters on your photo.
Today, we can see talented photographers, brands and agencies that connect to their community through Instagram.
