Instagram in a social network that is based on multimedia content (images, short videos and GIFs).
Its use is more focused on mobile than computer, therefore, although we can access the Instagram website or download the app in Windows 10, if we want to use all the features of this social network we must do it from our mobile with its Android app or for iOS.
This recipe means that students can do specific research through Instagram.
Nowadays, Instagram is one of most popular applications with young people

Creating a profile on Instagram is quite simple and fast, for this we go to the main page of Instagram, or we download your application on our mobile and open it.
