Showing absolutely no sign of a slowdown, Instagram is racing ahead and now has 80 million users, that’s a 60% increase from just the past 13 weeks. AllThingsD spoke with an infrastructure engineer and he said, “We now have >5.7m users per employee and “We’re hiring :),” Branson added.
It seems that those concerned that Facebook’s commitment of $1 billion would prove a negative effect on growth have been proved wrong. There also looks like there is no sign on the horizon for this growth to stop or even slowing down. So whether you’re using the Android or Apple version of Instagram, ones thing for sure, you’re not alone, not by a long shot.
