Instagram Reaches 150 Million Monthly Active Users

Instagram now has 150 million monthly active users with more than 60% of them residing outside of the United States. At last tally in June, the app had 130 million monthly active users. In February, the company reached the 100 million monthly active-users milestone.

Instagram, which Facebook acquired in 2012, added video capabilities to its popular photo-sharing app in June. Celebrities and brands quickly latched onto the new feature. Soon, pop star Justin Bieber became the first Instagram user to earn 1 million Likes on a video post.

As of April, nearly half of Instagram’s users are Android users. Instagram launched in late 2010 for iOS users and made the service available for Android users in April 2012.

Comparatively, rival service Vine has 40 million registered users — not to be confused with active users — as of last month.
