Instagram, the photo sharing program, has established more than 80 Million users.
The company today announced the news on its blog.
The boost in users is attributed to its launch of an Android version of the app in March. Prior to its integration of Android users, Instagram had about 50 million users, according to Mashable.com.
"We're excited to announce that the Instagram community has grown to over 80 million registered users who have shared nearly 4 billion photos! Since we launched Instagram in October 2010, we've expanded from one platform to two, bringing Instagram to Android users as well as iOS users. As the community has grown, we've seen people sharing photos from all around the world, from South Korea to Bolivia, and even underwater!
We're humbled by the amazing photos from people's lives we see every day on Instagram, and thank you for being part of this growing community.
The Instagram Team"
