Instagram Reaches 500 Million Users
During the past five years one thing that we have learned from Instagram is the potential of visual communication. Photos are prevalent it doesn’t sum what language you speak or which ever place you live in the world. A picture can deliver an emotion, a speculation, or a message that all of us can comprehend.
Recently Instagram also changed its logo. It’s innovative design exchanges the Polaroid-inspired camera with rainbow inflection for a perkier and more austere look.
Instagram’s CEO Kevin Systrom said,
“It feels like a new company. We have this new look, and we’ve got 500 million under our belt. It’s a whole new chapter.”
500 million people hints 500 million windows into the world. As new words stretch to join the conversation on Instagram, these windows become even more diversified. It is also expanding our prospects, bridging the space between us, and uplifting our feel of reverence.
Systrom, along with CTO Mike Krieger, a Stanford class fellow, introduced Instagram in 2010. It initiated as a niche photo-sharing app for photographers and hippie. Rapidly it developed into a colossal dignifying paradox, part of a larger social media movement. Though is has introduced sharing power to individuals, not just institutions.
The Instagram team has worked really hard to achieve this milestone. The company is also working hard to make Instagram more better for users to share valued moments of their lives and connect with their friends.
