Instagram: Social Networking for the Photographically Inclined

I was first introduced to Instagram by PA Hillary’s hubby Dan but it wasn’t until a few weeks ago that I finally decided to join. I have a tendency to almost compulsively photograph my life. So, Instagram, an app that allows you to, as their website says, “share your life with friends through a series of pictures” is sort of made for me. This free iPhone app allows you to take a picture with your phone, apply a filter, and then easily share it with your friends on Instagram and sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and Flickr. There are a bunch of apps out there that allow you to apply different filters to iPhone images and share via social networking sites but none have the simplicity of Instagram. It’s like Twitter but with pictures instead of words, which is sort of awesome.

Here are some of my recent Instagram shots, enjoy!

Instagram is free and available from the iTunes store.
