Instagram hits milestone: 150 million photos uploaded
Instagram has hit a milestone: 150 million photos uploaded in the nine months since it launched.
The 150-millionth photo is below.
Kevin Systrom, founder and chief executive of Instagram, said 1.3 million photos are being uploaded each day. That's 15 photos a second.
"To say that we're excited and humbled by the initial success of Instagram would be an understatement," Systrom said in an email.
He also noted that Instagram is one of the fastest growing social networks on mobile phones and has remained among the top 25 free apps in the Apple store for more than a month.
