Yesterday we opened our new Instagram New York office! We have almost 300 employees in NYC and they have been building great products across the board, from Feed and Stories to Explore and Shopping. They're also the team responsible for making sure our apps are high quality and stable. It's really exciting to see the continued growth of the team, and the beautiful space they just moved into. I also sat down with @alexheath for a conversation on @cheddar
Happy Mother's Day / Feliz Dia das Mães to all the moms out there, but most importantly mine :) Thank you for the support, wisdom, love, and patience (even when I went through bad hair phases like this one!) We love you!
Today, Instagram announced a set of new products at the #f82018 conference, including integrations with other apps like @spotify, a new Camera Effects Platform so partners can make creative tools for their followers in Stories, a new video chat feature in Direct, a reimagined Explore experience, and a bullying comment filter to keep Instagram a safe and positive experience. Congrats to the teams for all the hard work that went into building these innovative experiences, and a special shout out to @ssarkar1, @tamar.shapiro, and @jsood for doing the keynote onstage today!
@kevin and I are excited to be part of #foundersforchange, expressing our commitment to building a diverse team and pushing for more inclusion in both the startup and investment communities. I was lucky enough that my first startup job was working at Meebo, co-founded by Elaine Wherry and Sandy Jen, two phenomenal women, and they've set an example I strive to continue to follow in building a diverse team and inclusive culture. Check out some of the other entrepreneurs who've signed on at foundersforchange.org.
In celebration of Black History Month, we brought together the legendary @dapperdanharlem and a group of next-gen creatives on Instagram to #CelebrateBlackCreatives. @dapperdanharlem spoke about his new atelier in Harlem and we heard all about how @quillemons explores black masculinity through portraiture, @africancreature is redefining inclusivity in the beauty industry and @wellreadblackgirl is creating awareness of Black literature & powerful women of the past and present. So great to see them building community around their art and empowering underrepresented voices. Thanks to all who joined us today!
We just wrapped up another great year at Instagram with our traditional end of year all hands, and these talented folks from our team were the presenters. The all hands is a chance to review the milestones and changes from the last year, and look forward to the exciting projects coming up. I couldn't be more excited about the year ahead. What would you like to see from Instagram in 2018?
