Facebook owned Company, Instagram, is growing faster than ever. The company just announced that it has achieved the milestone of 700 million subscribers. In a very short interval of time, Instagram Reaches 700 Million Monthly Active Users.
Instagram launched back in October 2010 and reached 100 million monthly users till February 2013. After one year, the number of users reached 200 million. Then it took 9 months to add one more 100 Million users until last December. Last December, Facebook owned company, has reached 600 million monthly active users. Now Instagram take four months to achieve this milestone.
Unlike Snapchat, Instagram’s user base is primarily international, as 80% of its users are outside of the US. Brazil, for example, is the app’s second largest market with 45 million users.
Facebook owned company, Instagram has introduced its stories feature last year. Now Instagram Stories Overtakes Snapchat with 200 Million Daily Active Users. Under this feature, users can post multiple photos and videos that disappear after 24 hours. No doubt, Instagram has introduced this feature to compete with Snapchat.
According to Instagram, over 200 million people are using the Stories feature on a daily basis. Where as, its rival app, Snapchat, has 161 Million active users. Moreover, over 600 million total Instagram users are uploading or checking out Stories. Surely, it is a bad news for Snapchat as its rival app is getting more popular as compared to it.
In upcoming Instagram Update, the company will bring some new features for its users. Earlier, Instagram has announced a feature to save posts for later view. For all those who want to save posts can bookmark those posts. All those posts are saved in bookmark folder. But now Instagram Update Allows to Save Posts to Private Collections.
