Facebook’s $1 billion acquisition of Instagram has really put the the headline on the already popular photo sharing app. Instagram has reached 40 million users. Since the launch of an Android version of the app 10 days ago, Instagram has seen 10 million new signups. The figure was confirmed Rakshith Krishnappa, creator of Instagram-viewer Gramfeed, who told TechCrunch that Instagram’s API now lists a total of 40,026,379 users. Until now Instagram has not officially confirmed the 40 million users’ amounts.
Social networking giants Facebook took over four years to hit 100 million user base. Instagram is on the right path to beat that figure. Instagram was launched back in 2010 and saw 1 million users by December. It then topped 10 million users the following September. And in just 6 days following its Android app launch, it picked up 5 million new users, now adding a total of 10 million users in just the last 10 days. “We’re committed to building and growing Instagram independently. Millions of people around the world love the Instagram app and the brand associated with it, and our goal is to help spread this app and brand to even more people” Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said.
