*We haven’t dealt with Instagram.  It is a free photo sharing application that allows users to take photos, apply a vintage filter, and share it on the service or on a variety of other social networking sites.

**Another social media site we have not covered. “Pinterest is an online pinboard” that helps you “organize and share things you love.”
