Instagram reaches 200 million users

It is normal for social media companies to reveal their latest numbers in terms of users and reach. Doing so will not only prove that a company is doing well, but it will also help spread the word and reputation.

Instagram announced today that it now has over 200 million users or "Instagrammers." So far the Facebook-owned photo-sharing service is seeing steady growth. It was just six months ago when Instagram celebrated its 150-millionth milestone.

That means 50 million new users in six months. Not bad.

Furthermore, the company also revealed that it has shared more than 20 billion photos since time immemorial.

"Over the past six months, we’ve seen new communities coming together in cities and towns across the world, whether they be in Guthrie, Oklahoma, or Guatemala City. With January’s Worldwide InstaMeet 8, we saw record turnouts of communities coming together to form friendships, explore new places and celebrate creativity in all corners of the globe from New Dehli to New York, Bucharest, Nairobi and beyond," the company said in a blog post. "To the 50 million of you who’ve joined in the last six months, welcome. We’re so glad you’re here. And from our team to all 200 million of you, thank you for making Instagram great. We can’t wait to see what you’ll create next."

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
