Instagram Reports 200 Million Active Monthly Users

By March 26, 2014

Follow me on:

Shortly after Facebook announced its shiny new $2B acquisition of virtual reality headset company Oculus VR on Tuesday evening, everyone's favorite Facebook-owned mobile photo-sharing app revealed some new stats about its users.

Instagram now boasts an impressive 200 monthly users -- adding 50 million users over the past six months. Users have shared a total of 20 billion photos through the app since it launched in 2010.

Somehow, this crazy little app has blossomed into one of the hottest social networking services of all time.

To put things in perspective, Twitter is now 8 years old and has about 241 million monthly users, with 3.5 year-old Instagram and its 200 million users trailing closely behind.
