From our CEO @kevin:
“Today, we have two big announcements to share. First, Instagram is now a global community of one billion! Since our launch in 2010, we’ve watched with amazement as the community has flourished and grown. This is a major accomplishment — so from all of us at Instagram, thank you!
Second, we’re announcing our most exciting feature to date: IGTV, a new app for watching long-form, vertical video from your favorite Instagram creators, like LaurDIY (@laurdiy) posting her newest project or King Bach (@kingbach) sharing his latest comedy skit. While there’s a stand-alone IGTV app, you’ll also be able to watch from within the Instagram app so the entire community of one billion can use it from the very start.
IGTV is different in a few ways. First, it’s built for how you actually use your phone, so videos are full screen and vertical. Also, unlike on Instagram, videos aren’t limited to one minute. Instead, each video can be up to an hour long.
We made it simple, too. Just like turning on the TV, IGTV starts playing as soon as you open the app. You don’t have to search to start watching content from people you already follow on Instagram and others you might like based on your interests. You can swipe up to discover more — switch between “For You,” “Following,” “Popular” and “Continue Watching.” You can also like, comment and send videos to friends in Direct.
Also like TV, IGTV has channels. But, in IGTV, the creators are the channels. When you follow a creator on Instagram, their IGTV channel will show up for you to watch. Anyone can be a creator — you can upload your own IGTV videos in the app or on the web to start your own channel.
Instagram has always been a place to connect with the people who inspire, educate and entertain you every day. With your help, IGTV begins a new chapter of video on Instagram. We hope it brings you closer to the people and things you love.
IGTV will be rolling out globally over the next few weeks on iOS and Android.

“This island is a big asylum because there is the sea, but there is also the fact that you don’t have rights anymore. You don’t have rights,” says Médecins Sans Frontières psychiatrist Alessandro Barberio describing the Greek Island of Lesbos, now home to 8,000 refugees. The conditions in the camp for the refugees exacerbate or even create mental health problems. 19 year old Syrian, Farzat, self harms and has attempted to take his life. The war left him traumatised. The camp provides little chance to heal. “I saw the blood of young children, they all died and that’s how I got a mental disorder, I see it in my sleep. It’s always terrifying when I sleep.”

Moria camp in Lesbos overflows with refugees and their desperation. Inhuman living conditions and a snail-paced relocation process can drive the already traumatized towards depression and suicide - mental health issues that haunt a people with no home. They risked their lives to get to Europe. They thought they had escaped the trauma & would find peace, a future. They were wrong.

No wonder that haul-out rocks are covered in Steller sea lions, otters cling to abundant kelp, and it is common to see the white heads of bald eagles speckling the treetops.

“Acrobat and mountain guide Lukas Mathis on the top of Fiamma, a peak in the eastern part of the Alps,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Romano Salis. “After several fails, Lukas could hold his handstand and I was able to catch this breathtaking moment.”

“This seems so dangerous, to do a handstand on the peak of this rock face. I love how wide you made this frame, revealing not only the epic landscape to this moment, but also the height of Fiamma. I agree with Your Shot photographer Valerie Bryan who commented, 'Awesome shot! Although my knees got a bit weak looking at it! LOL! The sky is in perfect formation drawing your eye right to the man! Love it!'" — @natgeoyourshot Producer David Y. Lee (@davidylee)
