Who Is Instagram?

Instagram is a free photo and video sharing social media app available on Apple iOS, Android, and Windows Phone. The app allows users to upload photos or videos to their service and share them with their followers or with a select group of friends.


Disqus is a hosting service for web sites and online communities that use a networked platform.



The networked community is available for use by hundreds of thousands of people across the world. The platform offers various features to the users, including social networking, spam and moderation tools, social integration, mobile commenting user profiles, analytics, and email notifications.



Disqus is a third-party JavaScript app that runs in your browser and injects itself on publishers' websites. After installing, the application helps you gather and save data you browse online easily.  It also works by allowing engagement through comments on content created on websites.



Disqus is a powerful tool for engaging your audience. It has been built to help you build engaged communities, fuel interesting discussions, and efficiently moderate comments. Disqus can also help users understand their audience better, monitor engagement, and optimize content strategy.



In summer 2007, Disqus was first developed as a Y Combinator startup headed by Daniel Ha and Jason Yan. Later that year on October 30, 2007, Disqus was launched.

In early 2011, Disqus raised $10 million in funding from North Bridge Venture Partners and Union Square Ventures.

By March 2013, Disqus was being used by 75% of websites.

On December 5, 2017, Zeta Global announced that it had acquired Disqus.

In November 2010, Disqus began officially offering three add-on packages for web sites.

In July 2012, Disqus started offering two premium packages, the VIP package and a single-sign-on-only package for $99/month.

In March 2013, the premium packages were phased out.

In March 2017, Disqus’ new premium packages started rolling out.

In 2017, Disqus began offering several subscription plans. The same year, Disqus had translated in 36 languages including Spanish, French, Japanese, and Chinese using crowd-sourced translation on Transifex.
