Instagram Hits 300 Million Milestone!

Our beloved photo sharing platform, Instagram, proved itself once more. As a rapidly growing social network, Instagram acquired 100 million new users compared to the last quarter.

And now the mobile platform announces hitting the “300 million” users milestone!

On the blog post by the CEO, Kevin Systrom, it is stated that every day 70 million photos are shared through the platform. Quite a number!

This milestone also means something else. For the first time, Instagram manages to leave Twitter behind! In October 2014, Twitter had around 284 million users and with such a growth rate, it does not seem possible to catch up with Instagram.

Of course, the announcement of 300 million users immediately raised the criticism of fake accounts on the platform. That’s why Instagram plans to add “verified account badges” into its agenda, just like Facebook and Twitter do.
