Instagram has become a widely popular social media platform for everyone to share their pictures. The app lets users take pictures and share them with followers, all while being able to add a filter, crop, and edit the picture in just a few seconds. By December 2010, the app had 1 million registered users. Now, the app not only allows users to share pictures, but videos as well. The best part is that now everyone can share travel photos and videos with followers of their adventures abroad by using this app.

For all you travel and social media obsessed, Travel Freak mentioned a Twitter hotel awhile back. Now,  an Instagram Hotel just opened in Sydney, Australia.  The 1888 Hotel recently launched this social media hotel mashup, and has a revolving digital mural of Instagram pictures, a selfie spot to take a picture of yourself during check in, and Instagram shots decorate the spaces rooms. Rooms start at $140 dollars a night, and those who exceed 10,000 followers get a free nights stay. Now, travel and social media have finally found the perfect match in this Sydney hotel.
