When Instagram launched nearly 5 years ago, 400 million seemed like a distant dream. Now, they continue to improve Instagram, helping users experience the world through images and connect with others through shared passions.
The Instagram community has evolved to be even more worldwide, with more than 75% living outside of the US and more than half live in Asia and Europe. The countries that added the most Instagrammers include Japan, Brazil and Indonesia.
Instagram is an online mobile photo-sharing, video-sharing and social networking service that allow its users to take pictures and videos, and share them on a variety of social networking platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Flickr.
In August 2015, Instagram’s 7.5 version was released, allowing users to post photos captured in 4:3 aspect ratio. Users can also apply digital filters to their images. The maximum duration for Instagram videos is 15 seconds.
In April 2012, Facebook made an offer to purchase Instagram, along with its 13 employees, for approximately US$1 billion in cash and stock. Mark Zuckerberg noted that Facebook was committed to building and growing Instagram independently, in contrast to its past practice. The exact purchase price was US$300 million in cash and 23 million shares of stock.
