Ten Million People Uploaded Their Photos to Instagram on Thanksgiving Day: Another sign of how technology usage, in this case social media usage, is transforming our society can be found in the fact that ten million people uploaded their photos to Instagram on Thanksgiving Day.
For those who aren’t familiar with it, Instagram is a photo sharing app available for both Apple and Android devices that allows one to easily take a photo via his or her cell phone or tablet, put a customized frame around the photo, put a caption to the photo and then quickly put it out on the Internet for family and friends to see.
Ten million of course isn’t a small number and that ten million people used on photo sharing app to upload photos on the same day is notable as a sign of the changing times. However, if we consider ten million a huge number consider the related fact that on an average day three hundred million photos are uploaded to Facebook! Three hundred million – wow – that is an even more colossal number! That is approximately how many people we have in the United States! And of course, I came across an interesting article that relayed these facts – it is from PC World and is titled Instagram Users Set Thanksgiving Photo Upload Record. Here’s the link:
