Photo sharing app, Instagram, now has 400 million users who post around 80 million images every day. It has now overtaken Twitter, which had 316 million users at the last count. Instagram is also now more popular than Pinterest and Snapchat.
Instagram announced the milestone on Wednesday saying: “When Instagram launched nearly five years ago, 400 million seemed like a distant dream.
“While milestones like this are important, what really excites us is the way that visual communication makes the world feel a little bit smaller to every one of us.’
It added that more than 75 per cent of its users now live outside of the US.
Brazil, Japan and Indonesia are countries that added the most Instagrammers.
“Instagrammers continue to capture incredible photos and videos from all corners of the earth (and even the solar system),” added Instagram.
“We’ve seen inspiring moments like the first surface image of Pluto and Champions League celebrations, as well as striking locales like the white pools of Turkey and a Namibian desert ghost town.
“These are just a few of the more than 80 million photos per day shared on Instagram.’
MailOnline reports that among the most recent new members, David Beckham is the most followed account in the UK, Caitlyn Jenner tops the US list, Raffi and Nagita are most popular in Indonesia.
Other popular new members include German footballer Toni Kroos and South Korea’s T.O.P.
Pinterest announced it hit 100 million users last week, putting it on par with Snapchat. By comparison, Snapchat is the fastest growing social network of the lot.
Instagram launched in 2010 and was bought by Facebook in 2012.
