    Default Instagram Achieves 300 Million Active Monthly Users

    Instagram is announcing on Wednesday via its Web site that the media-based social network has achieved the milestone of more than 300 million active monthly users. Instagram also shares that its users share more than 70 million photos and videos on a daily basis.

    To celebrate the milestone, Instagram is bringing verified pages to the social network, which works similarly to verified accounts on Twitter or Facebook so that users can tell the difference between real and fake celebrity and other V.I.P. accounts, like athletes and brands.

    Instagram is also deleting a ton of spammy accounts from the social network to make it a better place for users:

    As Instagram gets bigger, we’re focused on helping you discover photos and videos from people who you care about, whether it’s a friend or your favorite musician. Last month, we launched a People tab on the Explore page, which highlights interesting accounts to follow, and we also launched improvements to search. Yet people ask, ‘When it comes to public figures and brands, how do I know that the people I discover on Instagram are really who they say they are? How do I know that this person really is Tony Hawk?’

    Today, we’re excited to announce verified badges for celebrities, athletes and brands, making it easier for you to connect with the authentic accounts you’re looking for. These badges will start rolling out over the coming days.

    Finally, as more people join, keeping Instagram authentic is critical—it’s a place where real people share real moments. We’re committed to doing everything possible to keep Instagram free from the fake and spammy accounts that plague much of the web, and that’s why we’re finishing up some important work that began earlier this year.

    We’ve been deactivating spammy accounts from Instagram on an ongoing basis to improve your experience. As part of this effort, we will be deleting these accounts forever, so they will no longer be included in follower counts. This means that some of you will see a change in your follower count.

    I bet this is skewed! I opened an account years ago and haven't touched it. They tell us "active" users but I bet that includes open accounts just sitting there.

    Btw I know this is bad but I didn't read the full article. So if in the article it explains what active users defines than disregard and....I'll conclude with just saying hello to the MMI family =)
