    Instagram, the popular photography social network by Burbn, Inc. has announced that the service has over 90 million active monthly users. The service allows users to snap photographs and apply filters to them before sharing them with their followers and includes integration with other social networks like Twitter and Facebook.

    Instagram has also released some additional numbers depicting the popularity of the application in their press center.

    Apart from the 90 million active monthly users, Instagram touts 40 million photos per day are taken and shared with Instagram. From these photographs that are shared on the Instagram network, 8500 likes are performed per second and there are 1000 comments on these photographs per second.

    Instagram was bought out by Facebook last year for $1 billion and was recently under fire over a privacy policy change that was later reverted to make users happy, as many users deleted their Instagram accounts because of the issue. Regardless of the privacy concerns, Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom tells AllThingsD that the service continues to see growth in user numbers globally.

    Are you one of the 90 million monthly users of Instagram?

    Instagram has to pay Facebook for using Facebook... Not really complicated..

    Also I don't know why you guys dislike instagram. It's a fun app and its not like Facebook where there's drama, also if you think it's something about it being "hipster" that's actually sort of annoying because that way of thinking is just as "main stream"
