Instagram has announced that it now has more than 600 million users. The photo-sharing app had 500 million users by the end of June this year, and has added 100 million users in just six months.
Instagram has added many interesting features over the past several months, like Instagram Stories, disappearing photos and videos in direct messages, turn off and like comments. Just yesterday, it added the bookmark feature that lets you save photos and videos privately that can be watched later.
A lot has changed this year, but the Instagram community and the diversity of expression it provides has remained consistent. And you now have more ways to share than ever before with Instagram Stories, live video and disappearing photos and videos in Direct. Additionally, with updated safety tools that give you more control over comments and other parts of your experience, we’re working to make Instagram safer than ever for connection and self-expression.
