Just over a year ago, Instagram had 100 million active monthly users, and now the company has announced that it has over 200 million active monthly users.
Instagram was purchased back in 2012 by Facebook in a deal worth $1 billion, the company also announced that more than 20 billion photos have now been shared on Instagram.
From documenting a passion for jazz to the protests in Kiev, we’re continually surprised and humbled by the moments you share. As we exceed 20 billion photos shared on Instagram to date, we look back in wonder at the beauty and importance of everything this community has created.
The vibrance and diversity of this community has increased as it has grown. Over the past six months, we’ve seen new communities coming together in cities and towns across the world, whether they be in Guthrie, Oklahoma, or Guatemala City. With January’s Worldwide InstaMeet 8, we saw record turnouts of communities coming together to form friendships, explore new places and celebrate creativity in all corners of the globe from New Dehli to New York, Bucharest, Nairobi and beyond.
In the last six month, Instagram has added a total of 50 million new monthly users, it will be interesting to see how many they have by the end of the year.
