Formerly, sharing pictures with your family, friends, and others require your time and effort. You need to take pictures from your camera and have them printed, so others can see them when you bring the photos to them physically.
But now, you can easily take a picture from your phone and directly upload it to any of your favorite social-networking site accounts, to let your family and friends see them on the comfort of their homes or work places.
Instagram has made photo-sharing easier; and it is the most likable app for photo-sharing because of its amazing features. Once the picture is shared on Instagram, it can also be shared to other social media accounts like Twitter, Facebook, etc. by doing a few changes in the settings.
