Instagram is a very interesting social phenomenon. This is a perfect variant of online version of a convenient diary which has such an option as to share your experience with your friends and even with the whole world.
Nowadays it is a great place to recommend some worth-visiting places, for example, restaurants and cafes, to boast of buying some new staff and just to inform about some news.
Compared with Facebook, Instagram has some evident benefits, from the parents’ point of view. The case is it is not for constant communication. Consequently, it takes not so much time, as Facebook does. Teens do not waste their entire time browsing in Instagram.
I believe that the idea itself is really great. It makes teens be more open and easy-going leaving more place for real communication.
