The clearly popular photo-sharing network, Instagram has announced continued growth, reaching the incredible milestone of 100 million active users a month.
The Facebook owned company saw backlash late last year over a Terms of Service change that was thought to lead a huge decline in users. It appears that many people didn’t mind the change.
In February, Instagram reported that they had reached 90 million users. By reaching 100 million in February, Instagram saw an impressive 10 million user growth in just one month. The growth comes despite having some competition, with Flickr’s latest photo sharing app, Twitter’s own photo-filters in its mobile apps and Vine.
Now, nearly two and a half years later, over 100 million people use Instagram every month. It’s easy to see this as an accomplishment for a company, but I think the truth is that it’s an accomplishment for our community,” wrote founder Kevin Systrom in a blog post. “Now, more than ever, people are capturing the world in real-time using Instagram—sharing images from the farthest corners of the globe.
