Instagram passes 700 million active global users

Instagram reached 600 million users in December 2016 and took just four month to add 100 million new users.

'This is an important milestone for Facebook because it's the first time we've ever acquired a product and company with so many users. In the latest blog post, Instagram now claims that it has over 700 million monthly active users.

Instagram has grown to over 700 million members. If the photo sharing app somehow continues to follow that growth trend, they'll hit 800M by the end of July, 900M by the end of September, and 1 billion users before the year is out.

An Instagram spokesperson told TechCrunch that its growth was driven by improved connectivity, including a simplified sign-up process.

There had been concern North Korea might decide to mark the occasion with a nuclear or missile test, but it never materialized. The display featured what appeared to be a new long-range missile and two new types of large missile canisters.

Approximately 560 million of Instagram's total user base now resides outside of the United States, which indicates the site's broad appeal across the globe. In mid-April, Stories reached 200 million daily active users, a number which surpassed Snapchat's figures, ironically. Based on the accelerating rate at which the photo sharing platform has been adding users, Instagram could be less than a year away from joining the exclusive club of billion-user properties. That's a lot sure, but not anywhere near Instagram's numbers.
