Instagram now has 500 Million active Users Globally

In recent times, instagram has been on the headlines for various reasons; apart from its acquisition by Facebook a couple of months ago,  the logo was re-branded to feature a modern camera and some cool colors just to showcase the reason for the app which is primarily for sharing videos and photos.

This time around, the popular Instagram has reached a milestone of 500Million users globally. See the announcement by the company below; 
Today, we’re excited to announce our community has grown to more than 500 million Instagrammers — more than 300 million of whom use Instagram every single day. Our community also continues to become even more global, with more than 80 percent living outside of the United States.
As you’ve captured and shared the moments happening around you, you’ve formed incredibly varied and diverse communities. Whether you’re an illustrator, a sneakerhead or an astronaut on the International Space Station, every photo and video you share helps bring people closer to friends and interests, broadens perspectives and inspires a sense of wonder. You’ve made Instagram a place where the everyday and the epic are always within reach.
Thank you for your creativity, your openness and your passion for sharing your worlds with one another. We can’t wait to see what you create next.

Congrats to Instagram
