Instagram's rise has been the stuff of social fairytales: two months after launching in October 2010 it had 1 million users, then Facebook buys the platform for US $1 billion in April 2012.
These new statistics courtesy of Nitrogram give a new picture into the current state of the photo-sharing platform.
At last count Instagram had 130 million monthly active users, with half of these residing outside of the US.
And they're busy – generating 1 billion Likes and sharing 45 million photos every day.
Instagram initially launched on iOS until expanding to Android last year. Now over half of all Instagrammers are Android users, and the number is growing.
