What better way to recap the story of Instagram than with the 'Instagram The Timeline' infographic. Depicting the carriage of the company from zero to billion in 17 months, this infographic uses Instagram images to show the progression of the company from a little office to Facebook's recent purchase.

These pictures have Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger sitting together at a messy desk having raised $500,000 in funding at the very beginning and progresses to opening the app in Apple's app store. Shayne Sweeney then joins the team, moving on to hashtags and then moving into Twitter's first office in San Francisco! Benchmarks such as $7 million in capital and reaching five million users are also included. Finally, a picture depicting the Facebook logo eating the Instagram logo features the end of the company's run and joining with another social media giant.
