From an old-timey looking picture of a puppy to a $1 billion buyout by Facebook, Instagram's come a long way from its first photo upload on July 16, 2010. The free photo-sharing program, originally called Codename, when public three months later, in October, recalls an Instagram blog post commemorating the anniversary.
Now, "1 year and 9 months later, over 50 million people have shared more than 1 billion photos on Instagram," the post continues. "We’re humbled by the amazing photos shared every day on Instagram and the incredible community that’s formed around the application."
That's a lot of pictures of food people are fixing to eat, along with everything else we now upload, with a vintage feel.
