Instagram Now Boasts 700 Million Active Monthly Users

In a very short interval of time, Instagram Reaches 700 Million Monthly Active Users.

But a year ago, you might have said there was a question whether a picture-based service like Instagram could have reached similar scale - whether it was universal enough, whether there were enough people whose phones could handle it, whether it could survive greater competition from newer photo networks like Snapchat.

The company, which was founded in October, 2010 took over two years to cross the 100-million user mark.

Over time, the app withdrew digital frames from its library of filters, while also adding a number of features as it grew.

The 8th Circuit Court of Appeals denied them relief, and only one received a clemency recommendation. Jones was convicted in the 1995 rape and murder of a mother in front of her young daughter.

The firm said the growth was due to its new features "like stories, live video and disappearing messages in Direct". It makes sense. Facebook had once attempted to buy out Snapchat, to no avail.

Facebook already has a couple of products in its portfolio that have already reached the billion user milestone.

Even if it just maintains this current rate of growth, Instagram will soon join other Facebook apps Messenger and WhatsApp in having a billion users. They are celebrating hitting 700 million users. There's just no competition here, clearly. The platform is expected to debut a broad range of new features in the coming months, most of which will likely be focused on video, the format that its parent company believes is the future of commercial Internet. So far, it's working.

Instagram appoints the rapid growth to a number of reasons.These include a simplified sign-up process and a barrage of new features introduces over the past several months, much like those found on Snapchat. About 80% of its users are now based outside the USA, notes TechCrunch.
