Instagram Hits 400 Million Users
What is this?
Facebook-owned Instagram just hit 400 million users. That’s up from 300 million users it announced in December of last year. Instagram has revealed that more than half of its recent users hail from Europe and Asia.
“When Instagram launched nearly five years ago, 400 million seemed like a distant dream,” the company writes. “Now, we continue to strive to improve Instagram — helping you experience the world through images and connect with others through shared passions.”
Why is this important?
Social networking are commonplace nowadays and this new information has proven time and again how powerful Internet is when it comes to influencing people over the world. As Instagram grows, advertising opportunities also will abound. Looks like Facebook’s $1 Billion dollar acquisition was worth it after all.
