Infographic That's An Animated GIF Explains Everything About Instagram

How could Instagram be worth $1 billion? Oh, right. We all used it.

Instagram was once just a quirky way to share photos. Then more people started using it. And tens of millions more. The uber simple UI combined with a touch of faux nostalgia stuck a chord with us, along with whatever overpriced dish we had for dinner last night. So this clever, interactive infographic isn't just informative—Instagram is really work $77 million per employee??—it's a victory lap for understated products everywhere.

Cheers, Instagram. It couldn't have happened to a nicer photo-social-filter-networking product. (Just please promise that you won't let Zuckerberg tell our moms about you.)
