Today, a common person spends most of his time on social media, and it is a fact. With so many different social media platforms available, there's entertainment to suit each one's needs. However, among the large array of applications, Instagram is arguably the most popular app filled with interactive and attractive features. Recently, the Facebook-owned app, Instagram, launched another fun-loving feature called 'Reels.' It was rolled quickly after India banned TikTok among 58 other Chinese apps in June. Reels largely replicates the top features of TikTok, a short video-sharing platform. 

Instagram Reels allows the user to create 15-second short videos and post them with effects, creative filters, music, and more much like TikTok videos. Social media innovations are the need of the hour to keep users hooked, and when an interesting creation takes place, people usually welcome it with open arms. And that is what happened with Instagram Reels. As soon as it was launched in India, many people began exploring it by making fun-filled clips and sharing it with their followers. 

Not only the common man but many 'socially active' celebrities also experimented with this new feature and reeled their way into fans' hearts.
