Today, Facebook-owned photograph-centric social network Instagram announced that it has hit 400 million users. This comes just nine months after announcing that it hit the 300 million mark.
Instagram now has 400 million users
Only nine months after reaching 300 million users,Instagram now has reached the new milestone of 400 million users | Techzubi.
Instagram now has 400 million monthly active users.
Instagram’s 400 million active users are collectively sharing 80 million photos each day on the social network.
The last 100 million users that have joined Instagram are celebrities, political figures, global sports stars, and more.
The wide active use of Instagram has helped the social network prove itself as an upcoming (if not established) powerful online communication platform that lets brands share images relating to their products, sales promotions, or company values or culture to an enormous audience.
Looks like they’ll have to update this chart:
Here’s what the team had to say about hitting the 400 million user mark:
”Our community has evolved to be even more global, with more than 75 percent living outside of the US. To all the new Instagrammers: welcome! Among the last 100 million to join, more than half live in Europe and Asia. The countries that added the most Instagrammers include Brazil, Japan and Indonesia.”
Yes, it’s no mistake that the team wanted to let all of us know that it’s growing internationally, the key to grabbing its “next 400M.” It’d be sure nice to know what the splits are on iOS vs. Android, though.
