    The First Instagram Picture Ever Uploaded Is Now Four Years Old

    Obviously it included a dog.

    Instagram co-founder Kevin Systrom uploaded this picture on July 16 2010.

    A blog post by Instagram also reveals the image was actually uploaded to an app called Codename.

    "Three months later, in October 2010, Instagram launched to the public," it recalls.

    But no one really cares about that: it's the dog we're interested in.

    And now Systrom has another unbelievably cute puppy in his home.

    This is the real reason Instagram was created.
