Instagram by the Numbers: 1 Billion Photos Uploaded

Instagram, the social photo app that has grown to 30 million registered users in the 18 months since it launched, despite only being available for the iPhone, debuts its much-awaited Android version today.

Android users (on phones version 2.2 and higher) get almost the same features as iPhone users, with the exception of a few things like tilt-shift and blur.

On the occasion of the launch, Instagram released a bunch of stats:

  • 430K+ on its Android waiting list
  • 30 million+ registered users
  • 1 billion+ photos uploaded
  • 5 million+ photos per day
  • 575 likes per second
  • 81 comments per second
