The Flyer’s Instagram account gets some props

We were excited to find out yesterday that the Flyer’s Instagram account was featured on an Instagram blog post titled, “Getting Your News on Instagram.”

Prompted by a recent New York Times article on how Instagram users spread the word about Osama bin Laden’s death through the iPhone photo app, the Instagram team highlighted a few news organizations that they believe are “leading the way in communicating the latest news through photos.”
