Instagram has announced that they have hit the 100 million monthly active users milestone, two and a half years after launching.
“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,” Kevin Systrom, Instagram’s co-founder said in his announcement. “For the first time, we understood why Instagram was going to be different. We understood the power of images to connect people to what was happening in the world around them. And, although Instagram had a fraction of the user base it does today, that night we saw a preview of what Instagram would enable at a much larger scale down the road.”
