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.


IGN is a world leader in games and entertainment media website operated by IGN Entertainment Inc.



IGN focuses on games, films, television, comics, technology, and other media. The site delivers a content-rich experience to users through streamed publisher presentations featuring pre and post discussion and analysis shows.



IGN gives both gamers and fans a platform to interact. After signing up on IGN, users get access to a live event where they can send and see reaction videos from home. Users get to vote for their favorite games.



Gamers can improve their games and get a higher score. IGN allows game developers a chance for re-review, however only after proof that significant changes have been made.

To get higher scores, game developers need to visit the site and compare the highly voted videos to see where theirs fall before posting.
