The Instagram 3.0 Update Furthers the Popularity of this App

 - Aug 17, 2012
With the recent software update for Instagram 3.0 and the widely succesful Rich Kids of Instagram Tumblr, a lot of smart phone users are flocking to the popular photo sharing application to see what all the buzz is about.

Instagram, which was recently bought out by powerhouse company Facebook, has been a force to be reckoned with and companies are starting to take notice.

Magazines, clothing lines, photographers and art retailers are now using vintage filters in their photo shoots, in their magazines and in their work to bring in more sales. It’s an approach that seems to be working and will continue to grow.
