Instagram is a Menlo Park based photo-sharing social media platform.

Instagram is a photo-sharing social media platform headquartered in Menlo Park, California. It also has offices in San Francisco and New York City. Instagram was founded in 2010 by Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger. The platform allows users to take and share photos and stories, apply filters, and directly message other users on iOS and Android based devices. In January 2020, Instagram reported that it had 1 billion average monthly users.



The company was acquired by Facebook in 2012 for $1 billion. The company launched IGTV in 2018, a video sharing app. In September 2018, Instagram founders Systrom and Krieger resigned from the Instagram.



Adam Mosseri became the head executive of Instagram following the founder's departure. Mosseri has led efforts to make the platform a more positive space for users through "Project Daisy" which aims to curb bullying and encourage better mental health through hiding likes count on users publicly visible profiles.
