50 million new users in six months. Instagram is on a roll.

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."
