The ways people use Instagram to connect with each other always inspires me. Over the years, reading enthusiasts have connected over what they’re reading through #bookstagram posts, where they post an image of the book they’re reading. These images range from shots of a book cover, to photos of objects that reference something from the book. I love reading to learn and I want to share that experience with other people who love it, so I’m joining in!
I enjoy reading books that I can apply to my work at Instagram. This month, I re-read The Innovator’s Dilemma by Clay Christensen, which explores how established businesses often discount new and disruptive technologies because it doesn’t solve their current customer needs. Less established businesses with less to lose are more likely to adopt new and disruptive technologies and find new markets to apply them to, eventually disrupting the markets of the incumbents. I see this pattern repeatedly with the businesses I study so I wanted to re-read it to stay fresh on the topic. Have you read it? If so what did you think?

At Instagram, it’s our mission to help people strengthen relationships with the people and passions they care about most. We do this through our products like the co-broadcast feature in live, and through meaningful programs like #kindcomments. Making our mission a reality drives my work at Instagram every day and so does having strong relationships with our incredible team. I love the regular dinners with my team to share what’s happening in our lives. Tonight’s dinner is bittersweet, because it’s the last dinner with my assistant, Kylie Riggins. Over the last two years, Kylie’s made a huge impact with her ‘no job is too small’ attitude and her drive to keep things moving forward. While I am excited to see what she’ll accomplish in her next chapter, on Instagram’s Creation & Communication team, I’ll miss the warmth and humor that she brought to my office. Thank you for all your hard work, Kylie. You will be missed!

@Dolly wishes everyone a happy Halloween! 🎃 This year she asked to be a Lion but we really think she was angling for a bunch of new toys 😝

Last week I sat down with @mrporterlive to discuss Instagram’s focus on craft, design and kindness. The article is up now as part of The Journal on mrporter.com - as part of the article we did a fun photo shoot here in the office so I’m sharing a couple of the best shots 🙌🏻

This morning, I attended Vogue’s Forces of Fashion conference, where I joined @marcjacobs and Vogue’s Sally Singer on stage to talk all things fashion and Instagram. Afterwards, I was able to meet a bunch of young fashion enthusiasts to learn how they use Instagram to find inspiration. Scroll through to see more!

Last week I rode nearly 800km around Japan. I left the pristine streets of Tokyo, through the dense forests around Shirakawa Mura, to the cultural center of Kyoto. The route was demanding but the views and experiences made it worthwhile. As tired as I was at the end of each day, I stayed up sampling local food, learning more about the villages we were staying in, and connecting with other passionate cyclists. I reached out to @tokyocyclist on IG and he was nice enough to show me around! While I am happy to be back at home with @nicole and @dolly, I am grateful for the experience and friendships built along the way.

Today I rode 100mi in rural Japan through forests and in canyons along rivers. About half way in we turned a corner and saw this! Japan may be one of the most beautiful places on earth—especially when it's pouring rain 🇯🇵

My favorite thing about working at Instagram is the team I get to work with. Tonight, @nicole and I hosted the people who help run Instagram. They're a supremely talented and fun bunch that make the app we all love work! Thanks to them and the rest of the team for all they do to make IG great!

In this month's @wired, there's a great read about what we’re doing at Instagram to keep our community safe and positive, including applying AI to filter negative comments. While building these tools can be technical, the goal is simple – cultivating kindness. Creating a kind community is important because it ensures people are free to express themselves, share authentically and connect with others. The article features interviews with me, and kindness ambassadors Nicky Jackson Colaco and James Mitchell, pictured here, who are leading the charge to make Instagram the kindest community possible.

The silhouette of a monster - @Canyon Aeroad 9.0 disc. Took it out for a spin today and had a blast. Never been on an aero bike before and I'm surprised by how different it feels (fast!). I'm also excited for the disc brakes which will come in handy in SF #fogust summer 😂

I’m happy to share that @nicole and I are expecting a baby girl in January! Some of my favorite moments on Instagram over the years have been following along as my friends and teammates have become parents and share that experience. I can't wait to join in! I am so lucky that I get to be Nicole’s husband and the father of our little girl. 🎉

Today on vacation I met @chrisfroome, the winner of this year's Tour de France, for a training ride. Although I've been cycling quite a bit it was challenging just to keep up on the descents! It was massively fun and I can't thank them enough. Good luck at the @lavueltaaespana guys!

One year ago we launched Stories on Instagram. Since then over 250 million people use it every day. Our mission is to strengthen relationships and Stories do that for each of these people. Congrats to the team pictured here on launch day one year ago! 🎂

Yesterday morning I hosted a Q&A for some of our inspiring interns. As interns, they work on teams throughout Instagram and Facebook. I had the opportunity to answer their questions around innovation, disrupting your own ideas, and some of the new products we’re building for Instagram. I learn so much every time I meet with the people who work so hard to make Instagram and Facebook great. Thanks for having me!

This week, my friend and teammate Joy-Vincent passed away. It's a tragedy, and I’m a loss for words for how to describe how much I will miss him. He brought a positive and enthusiastic spirit that lifted me and the Instagram family over the years of working together.

JV stood for everything IG stands for. He stood for craft, showing kindness without expectation of gain, and looking at the world through a lens of curiosity. These values are stronger at IG because of him.

He was also one of the most talented designers I’ve ever worked with. His skill influenced our new campus, our logo and our app. He made a lasting impact that will go on for the life of Instagram. I speak for everyone at Instagram when I say, we will miss him dearly.
