Instagram is a way to capture, edit and share your photos and videos with others.

Use Instagram to:

  • Post photos and videos using filters and creative tools.
  • Share multiple photos and videos to your story. Photos or videos on your story disappear after 24 hours and won't appear on your profile grid or in your feed.
  • Broadcast live to your followers in real-time only.
  • Send disappearing photos and videos, text messages and posts from your feed to groups and friends with Instagram Direct.
  • Watch stories and live videos from the people you follow in a bar at the top of your feed.
  • Discover stories, photos and videos you might like and follow new accounts on the Explore tab.
