Instagram Monthly Active Users Hits its 700 Million Milestone

Instagrammers doubled in size when the last milestone hit, up from 300 million monthly active users to 600 million in two years. Now, the last 100 million Instagrammers came onboard in just about five months. “We’re thrilled to announce that our community has grown to more than 700 million Instagrammers. And the last 100 million of you joined faster than ever,” the company wrote.


Instagram explains it’s done a lot to make the platform more user-friendly by providing more popular features. “We’ve made it even easier for people across the globe to join the Instagram community, share their experiences and strengthen connections to their friends and passions. With new features like stories, live video and disappearing messages in Direct, people now have more ways than ever to express themselves and feel closer to what matters to them.”

Instagram just introduced a new saved photos collection feature. The photo sharing network also recently rolled out Instagram Stories creative tools when the platform hit 200 million daily users.

Instagram initially released on October 6, 2010. Facebook bought the company in April 2012 for approximately $1 billion.
