Instagram now has 80m users

Since its launch in October 2010 Instagram has arguably become the leading photo-sharing app for iOS on iPhone and iPad and on Android

 

Instagram has today announced that it has over 80 million users while the Instagram community has taken over four billion photos. This comes just a few months after Facebook confirmed that it had bought Instagram for the cool sum of $1 billion.

This is a 50 per cent increase in their user base over just a couple of months, the success has no doubt been in part down to the launch of their new Android App which has already been optomised for the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the HTC One X.

Instagram was recently bought by social networking site Facebook for the sweet sum of $1 billion, a figure which raised some eyebrows especially in the UK where Facebook came under investigation for competition law violation.

The concerns were that the purchase would essentially rule out any chance for rivals to gain a market share as Instagram would always take priority on Facebook.
