Instagram provides a platform for you to apply filters and other effects to your photos and then share them with friends. You can choose to post only to Instagram, or you can share simultaneously on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Foursquare right from the app.
Hashtag searches: In addition to adding your own photos to Instagram, you can also browse through the millions of photos other users have posted. One great way to see the kinds of pictures you're interested in quickly is to search for certain hashtags. And you can also include hashtags along with your own photos to make sure they get maximum exposure.
Follow friends: Once you set up your Instagram account, you can start looking for people to follow, and other users can follow you if they choose. You can make your profile private if you want the option to reject certain followers, or you can open it up and share your photos with anyone who's interested. If you link your Instagram and Facebook accounts, you can also see when any of your Facebook friends join Instagram, so you can start following them, too.
Slow camera: When you go to add a photo to Instagram, you can either choose an existing one from your camera roll or take one through the app. The in-app camera function is rather slow, though, and you only get one shot. In most cases, it's easier to take a bunch of photos with the regular camera on your phone and then decide what to share with Instagram (or other sites) later.
Instagram is a fun, free app with tons of images that you can browse. There are also plenty of good filters and other effects to add to your photos to help you create just the right look to capture a memory.
