Instagram has announced that it now has more than 400 million active users, the company has managed to add an extra 100 million users since December 2014.
The company also shared some details about its user bases, noting that they have gained more users around the world and more than 75 percent of their users are outside the US.
We are thrilled to announce that the Instagram community has grown to more than 400 million strong. While milestones like this are important, what really excites us is the way that visual communication makes the world feel a little bit smaller to every one of us.
Our community has evolved to be even more global, with more than 75 percent living outside of the US. To all the new Instagrammers: welcome! Among the last 100 million to join, more than half live in Europe and Asia. The countries that added the most Instagrammers include Brazil, Japan and Indonesia.
There are now more than 80 million photos shared every day on Instagram and the 400 million active monthly users means that Instagram now has more active users than Twitter.
