The photo-sharing and later on video-sharing, social networks firm's growth started when the creators opted to focus their multi-featured HTML5 check-in project, Burbn, on mobile digital photography.

The name Instagram is derived from the words "immediate camera" and "telegram". Their iphone app was officially launched through Apple's Application Store on October 6th, 2010 and also later on to Android on April 3rd, 2012 via Google Play (a.k.a. Android Market).

Today it boasts over 800 million registered customers globally and more than 450 million individuals make use of the system daily.

Many specialists, myself included, believe that it can reach a billion individuals later on this year. That's greater than double the month-to-month energetic customers of Twitter and over three times as lots of individuals on Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp.

Greater than 80% of its customers are located beyond the United States.

Facebook revealed their acquisition of Instagram on April 9th, 2012 for $1 billion in cash money and supply, along with 13 workers.
