Which of these Instagram accounts is your favorite?
Instagram is now owned by Facebook, but the story of how it got started is pretty interesting! Kevin Systrom, a Massachusetts-born Standford graduate, created the platform out of his passion for photography. I wonder if he thought it would such a vital part of our culture, with everyone documenting their lives in pictures. Either way, Kevin became a billionaire, and the rest of us are hooked!
