Instagram Celebrates 400 Million User Mark

By Justin Lafferty Comment


Instagram is growing at quite the pace and now is roughly 1/3 as big as parent Facebook. The photo-sharing network announced that it has more than 400 million monthly active users.

The platform has gained 100 million users in less than a year, as the company announced in December that they were at the 300 million mark.

Instagram announced the milestone in a blog post:

We are thrilled to announce that the Instagram community has grown to more than 400 million strong. While milestones like this are important, what really excites us is the way that visual communication makes the world feel a little bit smaller to every one of us.

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.
