While Instagram allows users to share images/videos and gather followers, the app can also give you anxious feelings about maintaining a perfect image online.
Instagram is one of the most popular apps in India. Worldwide, the Facebook-owned photo-video-sharing app has over a billion users. Instagram can be a beneficial source for sharing your memories with your friends, and also can help keep track of what your favourite celebrity is up to.
