    My teenager has this app on his phone...What does it do exactly? What is the difference between it and Photobucket?

    I would like to know more about. Apparently, you have followers?

    Instagram is a social networking site that is based on picture and not statuses. Facebook owns them and you can see many similar features and designs now that they are one company.

    Not a bad app just not for everyone. I use it sometimes but have been a Facebook person from the beginning and can't seem to get away from that.

    It is free to try/use so you could certainly give it a try if you wanted to.

    From what I understand, it a photo sharing site and Twitter rolled into one. You can follow other people and share photos through Instagram and other social networking sites.

    It appears FaceBook has offered to buy Instagram, but the purchase is on hold, pending approval by the FCC.

    It sounds like to Photobucket is totally different. I used to use Photobucket to post pictures in forum threads.

    You can post pictures on FB. Why is Instagram better?

    No one said is better.

    The app has defined that "retro" look you see in a lot of photos on the web now a days. It's also the life blood of hipsters and photog wannabes.


    That's a joke, but all just the same.

    Also, you can post photos onto Facebook from instagram, in that way instagam becomes more of a one click photo editing software. To say its like photobucket is like saying an SUV is like a sedan.

    If I 'follow" my son, I will be able to see all the pictures that he posts as well as his friends?

    You would have to follow his friends, just like any social website out there.
