Instagram have hit it out of the park once again with yet another creative and totally original addition to their app! Nice job!

Wow! What an incredibly cool and original idea! Everyone gather around, it seems that Instagram have stumbled upon something truly miraculous. Get this: You've heard of photographs, right? Well what if you could take your photographs (or 'selfies', amirite kids?!), and add cool, colourful filters to them? WOULDN'T THAT JUST BE A DREAM! Well we're happy to report that Instagram have done just that! Honestly, we do not know how these guys keep coming up with all these solid gold ideas, but we know we love 'em!


This new feature comes hot on the heels of Instagram's last breakthrough invention: stories. Stories, if you'll recall, are a really cool concept that Instagram totally invented and didn't steal, which allow you to share little snippets of your day with your followers. Neat! Now it looks like you'll able to add cool filters to your stories too, making them even more awesome. The update is already rolling out, so just open up the Instagram camera, press on your face to activate filters (yes really, they are shameless lol) and have fun!

It's a pretty cool update and ... oh ... wait ... as I type we seem to getting a breaking report coming in?? It seems that Instagram has just announced that they'll be changing their logo to a white ghost on a yellow background and will also introducing some weird branded stories that no one cares about. Awesome stuff! Instagram, it looks like you've done it again!
