How to create an Instagram account?
There are a few simple steps to creating an Instagram account.
First, download the app from the App Store or Google Play. Once you have installed it, open it and tap on “Sign Up With Email Address” or “Sign Up With Phone Number.” You will then be prompted to enter your name, email address, or phone number.

How to add friends on Instagram?
There are many ways to add friends on Instagram. The most common way is to search for them by their user name or email address. Once you have found the person you want to follow, tap on the Follow button. If the person doesn’t follow you back right away, don’t worry! They may not be notified that you’ve tried to follow them so they might not know yet.
Another way to add friends is by linking your account with other social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter. This will help populate your contact list with people who are also using Instagram but aren’t already following you. To link your account, open up Settings and scroll down until you see Add Accounts under Connections. Tap on it and input the necessary information.
If someone has shared their User Name or Profile URL with you in order for you to follow them, simply copy paste that information into the Search bar at the top of Instagram and hit Enter. You can also invite others to join Instagram by sending a personalized invitation from within the app itself (Settings > Invite Friends).
