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 Goodreads?  

Goodreads is a social cataloging website that allows individuals to search its collection of books, annotations, and reviews for free. It’s a social-media page for tracking your reading and communicating with other readers, not a source for books.



Goodreads allows you to see what books the people you follow/friends are reading. It helps you track the books you are reading, have read, and want to read.



To use Goodreads, you must create an account first.

To start reading in Goodreads, you either buy a physical copy, borrow from your library, buy or borrow an eBook, or buy or borrow an audiobook. After reading, get on Goodreads to update and discuss it.

You can import or export a booklist from Goodreads by using the "Import and Export" button, found on "My Books."
