Instagram’s user base is growing faster than it has in the past couple years. 

The Facebook-owned photo and video sharing app now has 600 million monthly active users, a 100 million user jump in the last six months. It had been adding around 100 million users every nine months over the past couple years, so growth is actually picking up.

  • WhatsApp: 1 billion MAUs
