Many other news about the photo-sharing service
Aside from the news about its user base, it seems that there are too many other things going on at Instagram. First, the Website is slowly severing its ties with Foursquare, which is a location-based online service. Instead, Instagram is bent on shifting to Facebook Places, which could be an appropriate equivalent.
Just recently, the online site also rolled out the latest update to its iOS app. It brought a new slider for its Linux feature to enable users to customize contrast as well as saturation of photos. The site also updated its own Android app that now comes with a simpler design and speedier improvements to allow profile screens to load two times faster.
