Instagram now has 700 million active users, breaking another important milestone.
The new markÂ is especially impressive when you consider how fast Instagram reached it. AfterÂ announcing it had reached 600 million users back in December, it has taken the service four months to grow by 100 million.
Instagram has put a great focus on making its platform more accessible by adding more enticing features. It added Storiesâ€”a stolen feature from competitor Snapchatâ€”and recently revamped Instagram Direct.
When Instagram first launched in December 2010, it took nearly three years to reach 100 million users. It took it another 13 months to reach 200 million. Now, itâ€™s getting closer and closer to reaching the hallowed 1 billion user mark, something services such as Facebook and WhatsApp have surpassed.
At the rate itâ€™s going, it might even reach it before the end of the year.
