Welcome to Instagram, Jennifer Garner.

On Friday, the 45-year-old actress received a verified account and posted her first post on the social network; a time lapse video showing her writing the words, "I am officially on Instagram...So please follow me because isn't that how this works..." on a white letter board.

"Xx, Jen," she added in her caption.

As of Friday morning, Garner has garnered more than 120,000 thousand followers.

Her profile pic is a photo of her from the 2016 Hollywood premiere of Miracles From Heaven. She has not published a bio.

Garner's profile includes a link to the Save the Children charity's Hurricane Harvey Children's Relief Fund crowdfunding page, aimed at raising money for the victims of the devastating storm that ravaged Houston. The actress serves as a trustee and ambassador for the group.

Garner had previously only had a public account on Facebook, which bought Instagram in 2012.

"I have an official Facebook page. I'm not on Twitter, Instagram," she told People in 2014.

"I have a couple of reasons," she said. "One, I don't want any more guilt coming from my phone or computer. I have the hardest time answering emails, anyway, so the last thing I want to feel is indebted to my phone or computer. So it's time...And the other is, what would I Instagram that people would want to see. There is nothing I would put out that people would want to see. It's probably best to stay away. They don't want to see me and my mom friends after kindergarten drop-off."
