Instagram announced this morning that the service has hit 500 million users, with 300 million of those people using it every day. That’s a lot of dinner pictures. Additionally, 80% of users are currently outside of the US, making Instagram truly a global service, allowing folks to get a look at the experiences of friends from all across the world.
With such a large base of users, Instagram is able to pull down a few cool stats. According to the company, there are more than 100 million monthly actives in the US, more than 95 million photos and videos are shared per day (on average), and there are 4.2 billion (with a B) likes per day, on average. That’s pretty incredible.
