Instagram Hits 400M Users Just 9 Months After Announcing 300M

Today, Facebook-owned photograph-centric social network Instagram announced that it has hit 400 million users. This comes just nine months after announcing that it hit the 300 million mark.

Here’s what the team had to say about hitting the 400 million user mark:

Our community has evolved to be even more global, with more than 75 percent living outside of the US. To all the new Instagrammers: welcome! Among the last 100 million to join, more than half live in Europe and Asia. The countries that added the most Instagrammers include Brazil, Japan and Indonesia.

Yes, it’s no mistake that the team wanted to let all of us know that it’s growing internationally, the key to grabbing its “next 400M.” It’d be sure nice to know what the splits are on iOS vs. Android, though.

For anyone who was worried that ugly Instagram ads would scare users away in droves, that’s not the case. This is good news for advertisers, who are starting to fill up the network with both photos and video commercials.
