Instagram has achieved a fast growth in the amount of time it has been available to users – and the social media service has just now hit 200 million users this month.
In February 2013, Instagram had 100 million users – in one year, the service had doubled in “Instagramers.”
Since it was originally created in 2010 in San Francisco, Instagram has grown to become a part of many people’s everyday lives by allowing users to share their photos with their followers.
Instagram allows users to easily access and connect to their other social media accounts, including Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and Tumblr.
Instagram has reported more than 20 billion pictures being uploaded by its users on the site.
The term “Instagram” is derived from both “instant camera” and “telegram.”
