comment What does “instagram” mean?
As Turkish is my native language, I've encountered the Turkish of telegram which is telgraf. Turkish has a lot of borrowed words but I have never encountered any one ending with gram. I guess my confusion comes for this reason.

Diminution is much more common. You can see this NGram. You can also check OneLook where diminution is found in lots of dictionaries. Finally, search Google for both terms separately and compare the number of results.

comment Is “over-exaggerated” correct English?
I think over-exaggerated is redundancy. I would avoid using it. Similarly, if something is unique, then it is unique, we don't call it very unique.
