Instagram now Boasts of 100 Million Active Users

By February 27, 2013

Follow me on:

Instagram, the already very popular mobile social photo-sharing app, now boasts of a staggering 100 million active users per month. This means that at least 100 million people from all over the world are using this app at least once a month.

Many of you may be aware that the Instagram app that was originally designed for the iPhone is now also available for the Android OS as well.

According to the creators of this app, the number of Instagram users just ten months ago, was a mere one-third of the current figure. What is even more surprising is that this app had reported 90 million active users last month, which implies that it has generated 10 million more users in just 3-4 weeks' time.

This is an inspiring success story for all of you app developers seeking to create a top-selling mobile app. Follow the example set by Instagram and you will also learn how to develop and sustain user interest in your app.
