Flowchart: How Instagram Started

By | source:imgur Jun 29th, 2015

It all seem so easy when looking at today’s flowchart. Starting Instagram seems like something I could have done in my spare time. It also looks like a lot of luck went into Instagram’s success, but I have a feeling it was just a lot of hard work.

This chart simplifies Instagram’s growth and doesn’t show the countless hours of programming and investment negotiations. This infographic fails to show Instagram’s pitfalls in greater detail. These two co-founders walked a thin line creating this app and probably didn’t see the billion dollar opportunity until the extreamly successful launch.

I’m a big fan of Instagram, it is simple, which I think a lot of app developers are forgetting about. Focus on one need, create the best solution for that need and watch society flock to your application.
