UPDATE: The Instagrams above include some that appear to be posted by Syrians in Syria, others by Syrians and their sympathizers abroad, and appear to mix at least one news photograph with amateur photographs from inside Syria. An earlier version of this post suggested the Instagrammers were all on-the-ground participants in the revolution.
