Over the past four years, what began as two friends with a dream has grown into a global community.
The numbers depict the clear picture of the achievement of the app. It is reported that almost 70 million pictures are shared on a daily basis and 30 billion+ in total.
It is also looking out to launch verified badges for famed personalities like celebrities, athletes and brands so that people don’t get fooled by fake accounts. This feature has already been in use by Twitter and Facebook and has helped these websites increase their following.
The new features of Instagram include deactivation and deletion of fake accounts. The recent statistics don’t include the fake account holders.
