Instagram celebrates hittting 400 million “active” monthly users

Instagram has announced that it now has 400 million active monthly users.

This marks an increase of 100 million over the 300 million monthly active users that Instagram reported in December 2014.

The company says that the majority of these new users come from parts of Europe and Asia:

Instagram stated:

 

“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.

Instagrammers continue to capture incredible photos and videos from all corners of the earth (and even the solar system). We’ve seen inspiring moments like the first surface image of Pluto and Champions League celebrations, as well as striking locales like the white pools of Turkey and a Namibian desert ghost town. These are just a few of the more than 80 million photos per day shared on Instagram.

Also, a few notable names have joined Instagram in the last 100 million. The most followed accounts include David Beckham from the UK, Caitlyn Jenner from the US, Indonesia’s Raffi and Nagita, German soccer player Toni Kroos and South Korea’s T.O.P.”

Instagram also highlighted that more than 80 million photos are shared on the service each day.
