It’s hard to believe that five years ago today, Instagram was a young app just trying to find its footing in the digital world. Fast forward to now, where the site boasts hundreds of millions of users who interact, share and use filters to capture moments from their, at times, unfiltered lives.
In celebration of this milestone occasion, the popular app has taken on a task that none of us could take on all our own. They’ve gone straight to the very beginning and dug up the very first pictures that some of our most active celebrity users ever posted on the app. You know, before the arrival of those premium, photo enhancing filters.
In addition to that, other fun tidbits to know about IG after spending five years in the game are that the Taylor Swift is the top account and the most liked photos on Instagram revolve around Swift, Kendall Jenner and the rest of the Kardashian clan. They also included the very first pic ever posted on Instagram, a picture of Kevin Systrom’s dog. Systrom is the CEO and co-founder. As we know, it’s never too early to post a #tbt, especially on a day like today!
Happy birthday Instagram! Flip through to see the plethora of throwback goods.
