700 million strong and more features than ever

The photo-sharing app and the community it built that’s relatively unknown some 6 years ago is now 700 million strong. That’s no longer news, as that milestone was reached last April, what’s more notable though, are the new (and some copycat) features being rolled out faster by Instagram.

IGersManila supports #FreedomPledge

In partnership with Google, MTV EXIT recently launched an online campaign called #FreedomPledge, and the video above provides information how we can help raise awareness about this global crime of human trafficking. IGersManila Philippines supports #FreedomPledge, and with our visual storytelling, we can join the fight against modern slavery, using Instagram and our phoneography.

MTV EXIT is a dynamic multimedia awareness campaign that aims to prevent human trafficking and exploitation by inspiring behavior change and social action. Using the power and influence of music, film, and celebrities (like Jason Mraz), the campaign produces award-winning on-air, on-the-ground, and online activities that engage and educate millions of people. As MTV EXIT rolls out the Phase IV of its campaign, it recognizes the youth as an important stakeholder in its goal of reducing human trafficking through positive behavior change that drives social change. https://freedompledge.mtvexit.org/
