Next month sees images from the photo-sharing social network Instagram being brought to life in a first of its kind exhibition, 'My World Shared' (http://www.myworldshared.com)
Organised by @IGersLondon (https://twitter.com/#!/IGersLondon), 30 participants will be displaying a selection of images posted on Instagram at the East Gallery, Brick Lane, from 22-23 October.
Barely a year old, Instagram (http://www.instagram.com) allows iPhone users to post and share photos with a wider community.
At nine million plus members, with an Android application in the pipeline, Instagram is showing a faster growth rate than Twitter or Foursquare during the same period of their development.
Since its creation in March 2011, @IGersLondon has grown into a vibrant community of people from various backgrounds, brought together by the love of photography on their iPhones.
The group organises regular ‘photowalks’ and social events as well as supporting online communities in Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
@IGersLondon is part of the Instagramers community, created by Instagram user @philgonzalez in January 2011.
Now spanning 100+ cities worldwide, the Instagramer community and website provides a forum by which users can learn best practices, tips and techniques around the application.
Other organisations supporting the exhibition include social media agency 'Rabbit' (http://www.therabbitagency.com), app development company Splashlime (http://www.splashlime.com) and independent quarterly street art magazine VNA (http://verynearlyalmost.com/blog/)

Instagramers is the one and only blog around the Instagram photo sharing app all over the world.
The blog was launched in January 16, 2011 by Instagram user @philgonzalez, conscientious that it was important to create a place where users could learn best practises and tips around the app itself. Instagramers.com became soon a useful ‘first stop’ for any user interested in optimizing their use of the Instagram app.
Today the network has more than 136 groups all over the world. The first local groups were just launched in February in Barcelona and Madrid, and that movement spread rapidly to the rest of the world.
In just 8 months, Instagramers Network became a strong community of more than 70,000 members quickly growing in new cities and countries.
