Instagram, how to deactivate or delete


Instagram is a social media network focused on sharing photos and videos. The site was founded in 2010 by Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger who had previously worked together on a check-in site known as Burbn. Initially in 2010 Instagram was only available for iOS devices with Android availability launching in 2012 followed by a website based option in late 2012, and Windows mobile in 2016 with a Windows pc option in late 2016. The service is available worldwide, with the exceptions of China which has banned the use of Instagram, North Korea which has censored and blocked some posts, and Turkey which periodically blocks social media sites including Instagram. Instagram is available in 36 languages around the world. Signing up for an Instagram account is free for both businesses and individual users and requires only an email address and password to create a profile which can then be edited to include a short biography, profile picture, and name. The site is available via the website as well as via mobile applications for both Android and iOS devices. Members may link their accounts to their Facebook profile following the acquisition of Instagram by Facebook in 2012. Accounts on Instagram have no fees associated with the site, however, businesses may spend money to purchase ad space on the site and have their ads shown to users. Members may close their accounts at any time if desired, and have their profile and photos deleted as part of this process. More information can be found below to help with the closing and deletion of an Instagram account.
