How can I create a second instagram account?

The question clearly requires some operation in Android, either setting up new android profiles, or using a particular software. Is questions about android apps not on topic here?

    Al's answer and eldarerathis' comment are dead on. It's not "clear" at all that a platform-independent third party service with web access to its content requires signing up through the app. I've reopened the question. – Matthew Read Jun 1 '15 at 14:11

That one seems a bit borderline to me.

The reason used, "Questions which are Android-independent...are off-topic..." is technically correct. I'd expect that Instagram in iOS would act the same way.

But it's also not like you can go to the website and create an account; you can only create an account by installing the app.

So I think the question is fine here, even if the answer is probably "you can't".

    I imagine this is probably the reason people voted to close it. In particular, anyone who is not familiar with Instagram (I am personally not; I had to look this up) may not realize that your account is connected to the app directly. A bit of elaboration on the account creation process may be useful for this particular question, to highlight why it is directly tied to the app/Android and not just a question about Instagram as a service. – eldarerathis May 31 '15 at 20:48

    Agreed. I think I voted to close this question as I was unaware that you can only create accounts via the app. Given that this is the case, I see why it was posted here and that it does in fact appear to be on-topic. – bmdixon Jun 4 '15 at 8:22
