One of my favorite Apps on iPhone, Instagram hits One Million users.
Now, only a couple months later, we're happy to announce that our community consists of more than a million registered users. But why is this important?
We believe it's the beginning of something bigger. When we started working on Instagram, we tried to imagine what the world would be like if everyone could contribute media to an open, transparent, and international community. For a startup with 80 users at the time, this was a big hairy audacious goal. Little did we know that within a few short weeks we'd see more images from all over the world than we could have ever imagined. It was both rewarding and humbling to see people embrace Instagram as both a new home on their iPhone - and a new way of communicating visually with people around the world. We believe this is only the beginning. With 6.7 billion people in the world, we're a tiny fraction of the way there, but we're extremely happy with the progress.
