Instagram Becomes The Largest MobileSocial Network
Instagram added 2 million newusers last month. Everyone seems tolove the fast growing app. Ipersonally find it more rewardingthan Facebook.At Le Web Instagram attributedtheir growth to the Thanksgivingholidays (ugly sweater photos?) andthe iPhone 4S launch. But the fact is they were already outpacing theother largest mobile focused social network, Foursquare.
When I say “largest mobile social network” I am talking about a social
network where the majority of user activity is from a mobile device.Instagram and Foursquare both fit this bill well and they were bothcreated as mobile apps first, not websites with a mobile app added later.As addiction to mobile grows, as smart phones evolve into the majorityof phones AND internet devices, the web will in fact be accessed moreon our mobile devices than on our laptops and desktops. So whoever isbuilding the best mobile based social network today is only going tobecome more relevant tomorrow.
