PHOTOS: How Governments Are Using Instagram
The photo-sharing app isn't just for artfully filtered food pics. Governments are increasingly using Instagram to connect with citizens.

For many, the app is synonymous with beach selfies and artfully filtered food pics.

When viewed together, these public-sector Instagram feeds provide a snapshot of government life across the country.
