Instagram has a large user base, the visual appeal of the platform is engaging, and curiosity in the app has grown significantly over time, and together, they’ve contributed to Instagram’s net value rising above $110 billion as of January 2022.
Instagram is a photo, and the video-sharing app was started in 2010 by Kevin Systrom, a computer programmer and American entrepreneur, and Mike Krieger, a software engineer, and Brazilian entrepreneur.
It is impossible to ascertain Instagram’s stock price because it isn’t listed, and its stocks are not publicly traded. Because Facebook purchased Instagram in 2012, there was never any publicly traded Instagram stock; hence there is no Instagram stock price.
Because Facebook Inc., the parent business of Instagram, controls 100% of the shares, the stock symbol for Instagram is [NASDAQ: FB]. Investing in Facebook shares is essentially the same as investing in Instagram directly.
