Big week for Instagram. The product is clearly in good hands with Facebook, but what an exciting ride for founders, Kevin System and Mike Krieger. We’re excited to see what they build next!
“Instagram was founded in 2010, but initially focused on location check-ins as an app called Burbn. Mr. Krieger and Mr. Systrom noticed that early Burbn users were heavily using the app’s photo features, so they retooled it around sharing photos and changed the name.”
