Instagram has announced its latest milestone, it now has more than 300 million users, and the company has managed to add 100 million users in the last nine months.
The 300 million users of Instagram are people who use the service on a monthly basis, so these are active users, rather than just registered users.
We’re proud to announce that there are now more than 300 million Instagrammers. Over the past four years, what began as two friends with a dream has grown into a global community that shares more than 70 million photos and videos each day. Instagram is home to creativity in all of its forms, a place where you can find everything from images of the Nile River to the newest look from Herschel Supply or a peek inside the mind of Taylor Swift.
We’re thrilled to watch this community thrive and witness the amazing connections people make over shared passions and journeys.
The company is introducing a range of new features to Instagram, which include verified badges for brands, athletes and celebrities, you can find out more details over at Instagram.
