File this one under "the things you only see on Instagram." If you follow the user novelgram, you won't get selfies; instead you'll see the story on how one character named Instagram came to be. We don't know much about Instagram: A Novel except that it's a work of fiction, it has no connection to Instagram itself, and it's written by someone who goes by the name of J. Gone.

Ahead, some of the cliffnotes, er, highlights, for your viewing and reading pleasure.
