Instagram Reaches 400 Million Users!
Instagram reached a milestone this week: 400 million users sharing more than 80 million photos per day. Whoa. In just five short years, this platform has changed the way we share and record our lives. I’m sure it’s champagne all around for founders Kevin Systrom (@kevin) and Mike Krieger (@mikeyk).
My first “insta” was posted (very fittingly) during SXSW 2011. Grainy image, no caption. Now even amateurs can create stunning works of art with nothing but a smart phone and in-app filters.
Instagram is a powerful platform for branding and visual storytelling, and with each new enhancement (advertising and full-size images) they make it more enticing.
My wish list?
- An admin panel for managing multiple accounts
- Post hyperlinks
- In-app sharing
