We all know the internet loves bacon. But what Australia specifically? Turns out that, when it comes to bacon on Instagram, Australia is punching above its weight.

As Jumanji has started to wrap up production, Dwayne Johnson's continued to bless us with his Instagram. While we're still on the fence about the movie itself, Johnson's on-set pranks against co-star Kevin Hart are a sight to behold. He always looks like he's having way more fun than anyone else.
Instagram did such a good job of completely ripping off Snapchat's stories feature that you might think the two features work exactly the same. Well, I've got some bad news for you: Your Instagram stories are totally public.
Video: Out-of-office emails are boring. To be fair, though, they're only boring to the people that get them — while you're out of the office sunning yourself on holiday, you don't really care. If you want to make your email buddies even more jealous, though, you can now turn your away message into a travel diary of your Instagram photos.
Mobile apps are great when you're away from your desk, but there are times when you might just want a full keyboard, gigantic screen, and comfortable chair while you fiddle with your apps. If that's the case, you might be surprised to learn that many of your favourite apps can run on a laptop or desktop with very little fuss. Here's how you can get started.

Snapchat doesn't allow viewers to download other people's videos, but there are a host of third party apps that give you that option.
I didn't want to like Instagram stories, not one bit. I think it's not very nice of Instagram — which, if you don't remember, is owned by Facebook — to basically rip off the concept of a smaller competing app for its own benefit. Instagram has 300 million daily active users, while Snapchat has half that. Still, here I am, already four images deep in my first ever Instagram story — I have yet to update my Snapchat story today — and I must admit, dang Instagram, you did goooood on this one.
Instagram, one of the internet's most popular ways to brag about what food was just placed in front of you, might not have become as popular as it is today if were it introduced back when Windows 95 was the operating system of choice. As designer Misha Petrick reveals, it would have been a hot mess 20 years ago.
