Instagram posting 10 photos a second, has 4.25 million users

Everybody’s favorite iOS-only photo app and social network is growing up.

Yesterday at TechCrunch Disrupt, Instagram co-founder Kevin Systrom announced that the free service is posting ten photos a second, up from six per second just a few months ago.

Speaking to TechCrunch, he said, “It turns out if you make something that people want it spreads really well. People wanted to take pictures and have them shared across multiple networks all at once.”

The service currently has 4.25 million registered users and is adding 1.2 million users a month. Impressive for a service that is only seven months old.

The company received $7 million in funding in February and currently offers its service and app for free.
