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.

WHO IS Flickr?

Flickr is a media platform used for uploading, organizing, and sharing photos and videos.


Flickr is an online image and video hosting platform. The platform helps professional photographers and those with a casual interest in photography peruse the digital galleries and discover creative photography.


Flickr is not just for professionals; anyone can join the most influential community of photographers in the world. The platform allows users to upload, edit, and share photos from any device, at any time.


Flickr has developed tools to help users improve their digital media using any type of camera. For instance, Flickr’s mobile app for iOS has additional features that are integrated on the iPhone and iPad camera software. The feature gives photographers the ability to perform a two-finger tap on the screen to lock focus and exposure. The feature helps separate areas of the picture. Users can take better and quality images with the help of a Flickr mobile tool.
