When Instagram was purchased by Facebook for one billion dollars in 2012, the world's collective jaw dropped to the floor. Traditional business analysts couldn't imagine that a relatively young company with only 13 employees, who's sole product was a a picture sharing app, could be that valuable.

Fast forward ten years and Instagram is, for many in the 18 to 45 year old set, the undisputed champion of social media apps. Every day, people are posting millions and millions of pictures--carefully curated, of course--of their lives, their products, their work, etc.

In this episode, Abbie Fink and Dr. Adrian McIntyre talk about Instagram's place in business communication today and what the future might hold for the world's favorite photo sharing app.
