Popular photo sharing network Instagram announced that it has reached 100 million monthly active users milestones. It takes the company just two and a half year time since from the time it gets launched in 2010. Instagram last month only revealed that some 40 million photos being uploaded per day with 8,500 likes per second and 1,000 comments per second on board.
Instagram founder Kevin Systrom shared some thoughts on the milestone in a blog post. “One night soon after launch, about a half-mile away, Giants Stadium was full of fans cheering on their team in a race for the NLCS against the Philadelphia Phillies…While we may only have had a few thousand people around the world using Instagram that night, we had a sense that maybe through Instagram we could tune in to what was happening just a few steps away.”
Here is what Intagram has to say about it:
