Instagram Now Has 300 Million Users With Verified Accounts

Instagram has a lot to celebrate this Holiday season. They now have 300 million users with verified accounts. This number has topped Twitter’s 284 million members with verified accounts. Facebook bought Instagram in 2012 and is the biggest social network with a whopping 1.35 billion verified members. According to a report posted by PC Mag posted on Dec.10, Instagram is growing rapidly every day. There are more than 70 million photos and videos shared every day on the photo sharing social network.

Instagram is growing so fast that they were just at 200 million members in March and here it is December and they are at 300 million verified users already. This is great news for the photo sharing social network!

According to a report posted by Fortune, Instagram has grown by 50 percent this year from last year. They were bought by Facebook for $1 billion in 2012. Also, according to Fortune, they are even larger than LinkedIn which, although they don’t track their active users, they do have 331 million accounts.

Instagram has also announced a few new features they are rolling out fairly soon. One feature is that they are launching verified badges and starting with celebrities, brands, and athletes. They have also started deactivating fake and spammy accounts to keep it a social network site that is free and authentic for everyone.

How do you feel about this great milestone for Instagram? Do you think it will keep growing so fast? It is no wonder it grows as fast as it does since it is owned by Facebook. With everyone sharing so many photos and videos every day, it will be up to 400 million users pretty quick.
