Instagram is a photo and video-sharing social networking service owned by Facebook, Inc. It was created by Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger, and launched in October 2010 exclusively on iOS. A version for Android devices was released two years later, in April 2012, followed by a feature-limited website interface in November 2012, and apps for Windows 10 Mobile and Windows 10 in April 2016 and October 2016 respectively.

Instagram is widely used by fans to share images such as fanart, cosplay, convention photos, etc.

Social Media AU often features Instagram posts and comments made by the characters, either through manipulating real screenshots or using coding (such as work skins on Archive of Our Own) to style parts of the work to look similar to the platform.
