One of the new social media attracting people's attention is Instagram which has become a medium for photo and video sharing. The aim of the study is to classify and describe the type of word formation on the name Instagram using the word formation theory proposed by Sablayrolles, and to classify and analyze new words formed from the lexeme Instagram or from the fracto-lexeme insta- in the Czech language and French language. The study maps neologisms in the Czech language captured in the Neomat online database and neologisms in the French language captured in the Néoveille web platform for neologisms. The search results are compared with lexemes found in the corpora Czech Web 2017 (csTenTen17) and French Web 2017 (frTenTen17), and Araneum Bohemicum III Maximum and Araneum Francogalicum III Maximum. The two most common ways of forming words in Czech and French are affixation and compounding. Czech and French words formed by the derivational process of affixation use either prefixes or suffixes, or both. In compounding, two roots or complete words are combined to make a new word. The main result of the analysis is a list of derived and compound words from the lexeme instagram in Czech and French.
