Presenter, Sam Moore,

Topic, Instagram for iOS

 Instagram is a social media platform that has been around since 2010. It can be downloaded for free in the App store. Instagram is for sharing photo and video content. You can create and share content with your family and friends. You can also view content created by businesses, brands, influencers, and other members of the community. Unlike other social media, Instagram is intended for and works best on your mobile device. Join us and learn about how this extremely visual, social media platform has transformed in the past decade to be more accessible to the blind and low vision community.
