Instagram has announced today that their social photo sharing platform has 80 million registered users.
This is a phenomenal number for a smartphone only network that has apps for just two platforms iOS and Android.
Instagram does not let third party apps post photos through their platform so the only way to share photos is by using the official apps.
The company said:
We’re excited to announce that the Instagram community has grown to over 80 million registered users who have shared nearly 4 billion photos! Since we launched Instagram in October 2010, we’ve expanded from one platform to two, bringing Instagram to Android users as well as iOS users. As the community has grown, we’ve seen people sharing photos from all around the world, from South Korea to Bolivia, and even underwater!
