Moreover, Spain is one of the countries with the highest consumption of social networks, and within these, Facebook stands dominates the ecosystem. Instagram, which was bought by Facebook on 09/04/2012 for an amount close to 1,000 million dollars, is an application whose main virtue is the ability to brand and user interaction through photography.
