Instagram Hits 400 Million

There are 400 million reasons for brands to maintain a presence on Instagram, as the company recently announced that its community has reached more than 400 million members.

According to the social network, more than 75 percent of its members live outside the U.S., and more than half of the last 100 million that have joined the network live in Europe and Asia. What's more, the social network says that it sees more than 80 million photos shared per day on its platform.

"When Instagram launched nearly five years ago, 400 million seemed like a distant dream. Now, we continue to strive to improve Instagram - helping you experience the world through images and connect with others through shared passions," Instagram said in its blog post.
