An intriguing fact about Instagram is that it initially started out as a check-in app called “Burbn”.

Instagram co-founder Kevin Systrom originally developed Burbn as a location-based app that allowed users to check in, post plans, and share photos at specific locations. However, Burbn was overly complicated and cluttered with features, making it difficult for users to navigate.

Recognising the need for simplicity, Systrom and Mike Krieger, the other co-founder, decided to strip Burbn down to its core photo, comment, and like features. This pivot led to the creation of Instagram as we know it today, focused solely on photo sharing.

The app’s name “Instagram” is a mix of “instant camera” and “Telegram”, reflecting its focus on instant photo sharing. Instagram was launched on October 6, 2010, and became an instant hit, attracting over 25,000 users on its first day. This simplicity and focus on visual content are what ultimately set Instagram apart and led to its massive success.

There are now reportedly 2 billion monthly active users on Instagram. For this reason, and because of our recent app launch, we have decided to join Instagram (@ecologicadotlife) to provide our followers with regular, visual content.
