As of April 26, 2017, over 700 million people use Instagram each month. That’s right, millions of people log in to Instagram every day to upload photos, share stories and get an insider’s look into everything (and everyone) they love. Businesses use the platform to reach out to customers in a way they never could before. Friends use it to share memories and moments in real time. Other people start their careers on Instagram. And everyone, at least once, has used it to creep a crush.

Kevin Systrom and Mike Kriger created Instagram six years ago to start an open community for sharing photos. In the first 24 hours, 25 000 people joined. Since then, more and more people join and continue to use the thriving social platform every day. #Boss #Hustle #WerkIt

Kevin and Mike have the privilege to have first choice of usernames @kevin and @mikeyk while the rest of us must use some form of punctuation or extra letter to get what we want.  Kevin’s precious pup, Dolores, even has her own handle @dolly where she shares the most adorable photos. #SoLucky #Want #Jelly

Dolly is almost four years old, so naturally for #ThrowBackThursday, Kevin posted a puppy photo of an itty-bitty Dolly! #TBT #PuppyLove #Awwww
