President Museveni has joined Instagram.
Instagram is an American photo and video sharing social networking service.
It is owned by Facebook, created by Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger and originally launched on iOS in October 2010.
How it works
Users can upload photographs and short videos, follow other users’ feeds, and geotag images with the name of a location.
Users can set their account as “private”, thereby requiring that they approve any new follower requests.
Users can connect their Instagram account to other social networking sites, enabling them to share uploaded photos to those sites.
Museveni’s move is an obvious design to capture the attention of youth ahead of 2021 elections.
The president who has since become tech survy has been engaging youth on his social media platforms (Facebook and Twitter).
Now he has added Instagram on the list, tapping even more young people who can’t do without technology and the internet.
Museveni’s new account already has 50 posts and 9,214 followers.
