CALIFORNIA — Instagram is one of the few websites on the web that is currently dominating the world. It is a company that was bought by Facebook a couple of years ago. Since then, it has become a house hold name and is now a 300 million user base.
The website is an image sharing website where users can post and share images or videos. It has become very popular among teens and has been referenced in various music videos. The term “#Selfie” is one that originated from Instagram and is a popular thing that young people do on the site. The site is definitely one of the most visited sites and is worth billions of dollars now.
Instagram now has something to celebrate this holiday season with its massive milestone that it has reached. According to PC Mag, Instagram circulates a whopping 70 million image and video shares a day. Compared to Facebook’s 1.3 billion users, Instagram still has a long way to go.
“We’re thrilled to watch this community thrive and witness the amazing connections people make over shared passions and journeys,” CEO Kevin Systrom said in a blog entry.
