Instagram Reaches 400 Million Users!


Instagram is a free, popular platform to connect with people online by sharing images, videos, and comments. As a user you can also share the content you post on Instagram on other social media websites, such as Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Flickr.

What makes Instagram unique is that it allows you to post pictures and videos, however, these can only be of certain dimensions, making them look square and a lot a like old polaroids. This unique feature played a big part when it launched in 2010, and helping them gain 100 million users by 2012, and quickly gaining more and more users.

The fact that they have upgraded the platform and added other features, (like now letting users upload images of different dimensions) has helped their user count keep going up. By the end of 2014 they had around 300 million users who published images, videos and commented frequently and just last month, Facebook-owned Instagram, said they had just reached a new milestone in the development of their brand, housing over 400 million active accounts.
