Mike Isaac for AllThingsD:
At last count, more than 90 million people use Instagram on a monthly basis, the company said on Thursday. Moreover, the company is seeing growth rather than decline; that number is up ten percent, month on month, in the period from December to January.
Wait. How is that possible? Everyone left Instagram last month, remember?
Personal take: Instagram had a cruddy December, and I stopped using it personally — not so much because of the ToS thing but because of the business decisions they were making (see: Twitter cards). And, honestly, it gave me an opportunity to get a good hard look at Camera+ — an app I love — and the updated Flickr. Now, whether or not people are actually leaving, they did lose some cred with the diehards last month and it’ll be interesting to see if they can gain that cred back. — Ernie @ SFB
