The first Instagram post
Before it was the platform of choice for brunch selfies and overexposed photos of sunsets, before it was even called Instagram, this photo of a golden retriever and a woman’s foot was uploaded by the founder Kevin Systrom. Five years later, there are an average of 80 million photos posted every single day.
The first GIF
The first GIF was created by a team of developers at CompuServe, who considered it to be the best and most versatile image file format around at the time. No one really knows exactly what the first one depicted, but CompuServe's former CTO thinks it was probably a picture of an airplane.
