Instagram’s Birthday: Pushing Culture Forward
Since we started, people have come to Instagram to connect with their friends, explore their interests, and be entertained.
From fashion, to food, to entertainment, to travel, to the emergence of #weeklyfluff, people on Instagram have shaped the world around them. Through it all, meme accounts have kept us entertained, and countless people have turned their passions into a living on Instagram.
We’ve also seen how people all over the world can rally around each other for support and connection, with important conversations including #setembroamarelo, #iweigh, #realconvo, #366daysofkindness, and #kindcomments. And how our community has used Instagram to speak out against issues like systemic racism and inequity, helping spread movements like #blacklivesmatter, #metoo, #lovewins, and many more.
Right now, we’re witnessing enormous shifts in how people create and enjoy culture. Musicians have ways to reach people without labels. But it’s often young people and creators who spark those conversations.
