How Instagram Took America by Storm

(It has been getting some awesome early reviews so please don’t forget to order!
Release date is Tuesday for my son-in-law’s very funny political satire:

Instagram is very cool and I have posted several articles about it (click here). Take a look at this from Mashable on how it took America by storm:

Have you caught Instagram fever?

The flaming hot mobile app and recent $1 billion Facebook acquisition now has more than 40 million users.

This Online Colleges infographic shares some impressive stats behind the viral mobile photography app. Instagram gains one new user every second. One billion photos have been taken with the app — that’s roughly 58 photos uploaded each second.

Instagram’s on track to hit 100 million users — joining the ranks of LinkedInTumblrTwitter and Facebook — two years after its initial iOS launch in October 2010.

The infographic, created by an online university database, focuses on college students’ adoption of the app. It suggests professors and campus professionals use Instagram to foster community through photo contests. It also recommends that students follow professors to learn about their interests outside of the classroom.

How have you seen colleges use Instagram? Do you think students and professors should interact on social networks?
