Instagram informed today in its blog that yesterday, Thanksgiving Day, there was a record usage of the application.
The statement says that there were more than 10 million photos mentioning Thanksgiving-themed words in their captions, with more than 200 of those photos being posted every second during several hours. The number of shared photos was more than the double from the day before.
Instagram is a tool by which users can take photos, apply a filter to them, and then share those images in multiple social networks such as Twitter, Facebook, and many others. The filters are predefined processes by which the looks of the photos are changed, automatically setting aspects such as its color or texture. With Instagram's filters users can, for example, make a photo look as if it was taken by a Polaroid camera.
Facebook bought Instagram in an agreement made last April 9.
