Do you have an Android phone or an iPhone? Are you one of the many users of the extremely popular app Instagram? If you are, great! We would love if you followed us at Moose951. If you aren't quite sure what Instagram is, keep reading!

Instagram is one of the most popular apps to emerge in the last year or so. To explain it as simply as possible, Instagram is a photo sharing utility, but What makes it special is the ability to add filters to photos to give them an artistic effect.

In addition to the 18 great filters, Instagram also allows users to follow other users. This way you can stay updated on what photos friends, family members, celebrities, and businesses are snapping.

You can add a description to  each photo as well. Many times users will include a hashtag (any word with a # in front of it.) For example, #Bozeman is a popular hashtag. Once a hashtag is included in a photo's description such as #Bozeman, the hashtag becomes clickable and it will direct to a photo stream of all photos ever tagged with #Bozeman. See the growing #BozMusicOnMain photo stream here.

Instagram also works well with Facebook and Twitter allowing you to share your photos immediately on either or both.

I recommend a brief look through of some of the really cool photos on the Instagram home page of the app. Once you take a gander you'll be instantly hooked on creating Instagrams! If you need help signing up, follow these easy instructions.
