How does groupme or instagram really works? I know in groupme when you want to send a message everybody receives it instantly. Do they have somebody in a company transfer all the data? How are all the old messages save? Do they have a cloud program? How does it work when there's an app that save data files?

It's called the speed of light. They do not all arrive at the same time, just in the same instant. Noone at any company touches them. It's done by the magic of software.

I think in group message, you can send the same message to everyone in just an instant. In instagram, you can edit pictures and share it easily to facebook, twitter and others.

Welcome to HTG Seth.

Just in case you hadn't noticed, you've replied to a two month old
thread and it's unlikely we'll hear back from the original poster.

Feel free to stick around and join another, more current, discussion.

Closing.
