No filter: the inside story of how Instagram transformed business, celebrity and our culture

By: Frier, Sarah
Material type: TextTextPublisher: London Random House Business 2020Description: xxii, 326 p. Includes indexISBN: 9781847942531Subject(s): Instagram - Success | Instagram - Business strategy | Instagram - InfluencersDDC classification: 658.872 Summary: In just ten years, Instagram has gone from being a simple photo app to a $100-billion company. The journey has involved ground-breaking innovations, a billion-dollar takeover, and clashes between some of the biggest names in tech. But it’s a story that has never been told – until now. In No Filter, Bloomberg’s Sarah Frier reveals how Instagram became the hottest app in a generation, reshaping our culture and economy in the process. With astonishing access to all the key players – from Instagram’s co-founders to super-influencers like Kris Jenner – Frier offers behind-the-scenes glimpses of every moment in the company’s life: from its launch to its unlikely acquisition by Facebook, to its founders’ dramatic disputes with their new boss, Mark Zuckerberg. But this is not just a Silicon Valley story. No Filter explores how Instagram has reshaped global business, creating a new economy of ‘influencers’ and pioneering a business model that sells an aspirational lifestyle to all of us. And it delves into Instagram’s effects on popular culture, rewiring our understanding of celebrity and placing mounting pressure on all of us to perform online – to the point of warping our perception of reality. The resulting book connects one company’s rise to a global revolution in technology, culture and business. Facebook’s decision to buy Instagram was the best investment it ever made. But we’re still learning about what it has cost the rest of us. https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/671686/sin-filtro-la-historia-secreta-de-instagram--no-filter-the-inside-story-of-instagram-by-sarah-frier/
