In a blog post Tuesday, Instagram announced they’d crossed the 200 million active users mark, which is quite the figure for a company just three and a half years old. 50 million users have joined in the last six months alone.
If you recall, the Internet nearly exploded when news broke that Facebook was buying Instagram in April 2012. When the deal closed five months later, it was difficult to say if Facebook got a steal of a deal or just lost out big. Now that the dust has settled, as it always does, the future looks bright.
If you had any doubt that Instagram was a social network here to stay, it’s safe to put those doubts to rest. Since inception, more than 20 billion photos have been shared, and there’s no end in sight.
