With over 400 million users, Instagram pips Twitter

  • Facebook-owned popular photo-sharing website Instagram has added 100 million new users in the past nine months to zoom past the micro-blogging site Twitter which currently has 316 million monthly active users.

    Out of over 400 million users, more than 75 percent of Instagram users now live outside of the US.

    "When Instagram was launched nearly five years ago, 400 million seemed like a distant dream,” Facebook said in a blog post.

    "Now, we continue to strive to improve Instagram? helping you experience the world through images and connect with others through shared passions,” the post added. (Source: IANS)
