Instagram now has 10 million users

It took Instagram, the popular photo app, less than one month to add that last million users to reach 10 million members. Instagram wrote in a blog post just a few hours ago:

“Last October, we launched Instagram live in the App Store. Today, less than one year later, we’re happy to announce that the Instagram community now consists of over 10 million registered users.”

Account number 10 million is “homer123” (view on Statigram) but it has not posted any photos yet. Since account number 1 and 2 are missing (first working account is Kevin Systrom at #3), you might say that the 10 millionth account is 10,000,002: “dinbeebis” (possibly Swedish?).

Instagram is also close to reaching a quarter of a billion hosted photos since photo number 240 million was uploaded this morning:

Instagram now has 9 million users

The popular photo app Instagram is growing rapidly. As I blogged this weekend, it now hosts more than 200 million photos and it continues to grow. Instagram has also just passed another milstone since it now has more than 9 million members (today, even more than 9.1 million). In June it had 5 million members, as reported by TechCrunch, which means that it has added an additional 4 million in less than three months.
