Helpful Instagram Apps
Case Study: Nike
The hashtag obsessed.
#postforlikes #cute #me #pictureoftheday #love #friends
The shameless selfie.
Every photo is just their face with a less than witty captions
It makes us feel like we’re inside their lives a little bit.
The traveler.
Admit you’re a little jealous of all they’re doing and wondering how they afford it all.
Anyone with an Iphone or Android phone can use Instagram
Majority of users are female
Users are predominantly between 18-29 years old
Food, scenery, cute animals, and ‘selfies’ are all common items to Instagram
You can set your profile to public or private
Public: anyone can view, like, or comment your photos
Private: only users who send a request that you approve can view, like, or comment your photos
Instagram community is based around purely visual connections
Its audience is self-reflexive. Users indulge in the clichés.
Businesses, celebrities, and public figures have become popular users to build up their markets and followers.

The wannabe foodie.
Add a filter and your dining hall meal will look like it’s from a 5-star restaurant
The indulgers.
It’s not Thursday without a throwback.
By now I should have 3 free plane tickets and a free hotel stay from all the online competitions.
At a glance
The Basics
Some of the people you'll meet on Instagram

Plan A: burbn
Received $500,000 in funding from Baseline Ventures when the founders were working on Burbn
Do not have any other source of income
Raised $7 million dollars from investors and was valued at over $25 million.
Still not making any income
In April, Facebook buys Instagram for $1 Billion
In October, Instagram, now associated with Facebook, introduces it's first "sponsored" ad.
It ain't all about the Benjamins!
Instagram wasn't concerned with making money
Focused on building its community, user base, and functionality.
By not chasing the dollar, they could focus on making the app better.
What was their secret?
Kept overhead low - only 13 employees.
Didn't have a expensive headquarters.
Stayed nimble enough to switch from Burbn to Instagram.
Most importantly...
People LOVE the app!!
Filters make it possible to post professional looking photos
Uploads are quick and easy
Can share easily with other social media platforms
Bad move by Instagram?
Since Facebook bought the company, Instagram has grown from 30 million users to 150 million users.
Twitter is worth $30 Billion and has over 230 million users.
Should Instagram have waited out for more money???
"Our focus with every product we build is to make Instagram a place where people come to connect and be inspired. Building Instagram as a business will help us better serve the global—and ever growing—Instagram community, while maintaining the simplicity you know and love."
