Instagram is on the rise. The photo and video sharing network announced this week that it has surpassed 150 million monthly active users.
The site has gained 50 million users in just the last six months, putting it on pace to rival networks like Twitter, which boasts over 200 monthly active users! The international presence on Instagram is also on the rise, with over 60% of Instagram users located outside the United States.
This announcement comes after Instagram’s billion-dollar acquisition by Facebook and integration with the network. Instagram officials also picture starting to make money by offering ads on the network sometime in the next year.
