New York’s hottest photo sharing app….is Instagram. Well not just New York, but I really wanted to work Stefon in here, so deal with it.
-Launched in October 2010, they had 100K sign ups in the first month, 1 mm by the end of 2010 and now has 5 million users
-Growth trajectory is 625K new users per month
-Considering that this is strictly an iPhone app, this is crazy bananas
-95 million photos have been shared so far, with 100 million slated to be uploaded in the next few days (this took Flickr 2 years to reach that same mark)
-Average of 19 photos per user
-860K new photos per day
-2,500 unique apps are accessing their API
-Sending over 10 mm Push Notifications per day
-Check out who is on Instagram here
Fun fact- they only have FOUR employees! That’s 1.2 mm users per staff member.
