Instagram hits 90 million users with 40 million pictures a day

Instagram hits 90 million users with 40 million pictures a day
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.
