An Instagram spokesperson stated that "Photo Map was not widely used, so we've decided to remove the feature and focus on other priorities".

The popularity of Instagram has resulted in widespread community engagement, including dedicated "trends", in which users post specific types of photos on specific days of the week with a hashtag representing a common theme.

Instagram has received positive reviews for its i OS app, and it has been named "one of the most influential social networks in the world".

After its launch in 2010, Instagram rapidly gained popularity, with one million registered users in two months, 10 million in a year, and ultimately 800 million as of September 2017.

Its users have uploaded over 40 billion photos to the service as of October 2015.

In February 2011, it was reported that Instagram had raised $7 million in Series A funding from a variety of investors, including Benchmark Capital, Jack Dorsey, Chris Sacca (through Capital fund), and Adam D'Angelo.

In November 2012, Instagram launched website profiles, allowing anyone to see users' feeds from their web browsers.

The Verge wrote that the development team had tested the app on devices not for sale in the United States, particularly low-end models like Samsung Galaxy Y, in an effort to improve the app for its userbase located outside the U. Engineering manager Philip Mc Allister told The Verge that "More than 60 percent of our users are outside the US, and Android covers roughly half of total Instagram users".

The second update, introduced in April 2017, added an offline mode, in which content previously loaded in the news feed is available without an Internet connection, and users can comment, like, save media, and unfollow users, all of which will take effect once the user goes back online.

As Instagram has grown, it's become harder to keep up with all the photos and videos people share.
