Facebook and Twitter are the giants of social media networks. But who would have ever thought that a simple application for photography would go beyond the limits. Yes, we’re talking about Instagram. The application has reached more than a hundred million users that are actively using the program. The numbers of users reached nearly 90 million users last month which was never even realized on the first days of the application.

Instagram finally went beyond its expectations and seem to have everyone in the globe enjoy the application. In a blog released earlier today, one of the founders of the application shared how it was during the first days. He shared a few of his memories after the launch of the application in 2010. He stated that it was not easy at first to earn the trust and catch the eyes of the users. He remembers how the application has helped some citizens in a state to catch up a race while they are working. After all the feedback they got after that stint, they finally realized that the application is going to be the next big thing.

That was the mark of Instagram’s fame and gained the interest of the people. Indeed, the application instantly became a hit. As of this month, it has reached beyond 100 million users after two and a half years. The application faced comments regarding its privacy policy and its terms and conditions of use. There are risks when signing up, risks to the user’s privacy. Once the users sign up, he or she automatically agrees to the terms. One of the terms is that once the user posts a photo, it gives a third-party an access to its files. Also, even if the files are removed, there can still be cached copies saved by the application that will still allow other users some access. It is clear that any photo posted online will be available to the public.

Basing on the number of users it has up to this time, everyone seems to agree to all the terms that the application is imposing. This is very impressive for a simple application to earn another 10% of its users after a month. Everyone enjoys the privilege of sharing photos, Instagram is also considered as a big help for people to communicate and update each other even if they are from different parts of the world, looks like it has a long way to go.

    “He remembers how the application has helped some citizens in a state to catch up a race while they are working.” Very oddly written sentence, honey. Better writing, please.
