In No Filter: The Inside Story of Instagram (Simon & Schuster, 2020), award-winning reporter Sarah Frier reveals the never-before-told story of how Instagram became the most culturally defining app of the decade. Instagram co-founders Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger stayed on with the company after Facebook purchased the app for a historic $1 billion. Just as Instagram was about to reach a billion users, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg (who was once supportive of the founders’ autonomy) began to feel threatened. Frier explores what happened next.
