Instagram for Android surpasses five million downloads in six days

12

Instagram for Android hit one million downloads in less than one day, and it seems the pace has barely slowed since then — according to Google Play, Instagram has been downloaded more than five million times in about six days. And what a six days it has been, with Mark Zuckerburg opening up Facebook's wallet to snap the photo-sharing service up for a cool $1 billion. That said, there's been a slight amount of backlash to Facebook snapping up Instagram — time will tell if that backlash affects the app's popularity. While we don't expect it'll continue to pull in nearly one million new users a day for much longer, there are still plenty of Android users out who will likely join the Instagram ranks over the coming months.
