How Instagram Works
Transcript of How Instagram Works
By: Grace Wangen Hour:5
Instagram is a photo sharing application for smartphones that combines social networking applications with easy to use filters and options for personalizing the photographs you take.
Setting up an Instagram Account: After downloading the free app, you'll want to check your settings first. You want to find that perfect moment and want to share it, and you don't want to mess around with the basics.
In the main photo screen, there are three main toggle options like, front/rear camera, portrait/landscape setup and various flash options. You will be changing these often depending on your location and proximity to your subject.
One setting to consider, here, is whether you want to be "Public"--the default--or a "Private" user. If you choose later, you'll be asked every time you OK a shot whether or not you want it public on your feed.
You can also choose how you'd like to be notified, Facebook style, whenever people react to your feed. Whether or not you are a public user, you can still connect to and follow other users. There are search options available to find your friends.
Finally Instagram is committed to joining location-based apps like Foursquare, Yelp, and Facebook places, so you'll need to decide whether you want your pictures to appear automatically on a map of exploits as you upload them.
Everyone's privacy needs are different in the online world of today, but Instagram has options for everybody. The home screen keeps up a running feed of your friends' pictures, with options to comment or "favorite" them, similar to your Tumblr or Flicker feed. You can also branch out to look at other pictures from a given user, change your relationship settings, or see what else is going on.
There are many screens on Instagram: Explore Screen=(a compass rose), News Screen=(represented by a heart symbol in a word balloon), Profile Screen=(look for the text-message box symbol on the bottom far right). Once you take a photo, you'll have the option to filter the shot, delete it or automatically upload it to your public or private feed. Just remember to have fun with it and be safe.
