Instagram has 90 million active users

When Instagram changed its ToS last month, many misread the site's intentions and believed that the change would allow Instagram to sell your pictures for advertising, and keep all of the proceeds. The uproar was so loud that Instagram quickly changed the ToS once again to get rid of the offending passages. At the time, the New York Post reported that the number of Instagram subscribers had dropped over the Christmas holiday from 16.4 million to 12.5 million as a backlash from the ToS change.

But those numbers turned out to be way off. Instagram has announced that it has 90 million active users. An amazing 40 million pictures are added to the site daily. And the site receives "8,500" likes and 1,000 comments per second. Oops! There's another 8,500 "likes"...and another. Co-founder Kevin Systrom says that Instagram continues to show strong growth around the world.

"Instagram continues to see very strong growth around the world. With many of the product and internationalization improvements we’ve made, we’ve been excited to see these efforts resonate with users globally."-Kevin Systrom, co-founder, Instagram

I'm one of those 90 million that has an account that I don't use anymore. I realize that the whole filter thing you can throw on a picture is cool, but at the same time i think it's popular mostly because of its easiness to share to facebook/twitter. All you ahd to do was snap the picture add your favorite filter and hit done and it would send.... I then found out I can just hit share, then faceboook/twitter on my phone without having to use instagram and its even faster.

Instagram does have the ahhh effect though
